NYC Health + Hospitals/South Brooklyn Health has a team of dedicated, board-certified radiologists and highly skilled technicians who provide cutting-edge diagnostic imaging services and compassionate care for our patients in a welcoming and comfortable environment, including in our new, personalized women’s suite.
We have received accreditation from The American College of Radiology for providing superior image quality and patient safety. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to make diagnoses more quickly and minimizes any discomfort you might experience. Our Radiology Department features some of the most advanced technology available, including:
- 3D Breast Tomosynthesis: Our breast imaging center has two 3D machines that provide more detail than standard mammography and can help detect breast cancer, especially in patients with dense breast tissue.
- Wide-Bore 3T (Tesla) MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): A wide-bore machine offers more space for the patient than a traditional closed machine, and 3T imaging provides a clear, more complete image, especially of tissues and organs that can be difficult to see on a standard MRI machine.
- 64-slice CT (Computed Tomography) Scan: A 64-slice CT scan machine takes double the number of images per rotation than a standard machine and provides a highly detailed view, which can help doctors diagnose heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses.
In addition to providing the most advanced technology, we provide our patients with the highest quality care. We provide resources to help you and your loved ones understand your diagnosis and treatment options.
Our inpatient and outpatient diagnostic imaging services include:
- Computed Tomography (CT) Scan: Provides detailed images of body parts, including muscles, organs, and blood vessels. CT scans can also be used for biopsies or in preparation for surgery or other treatment.
- Digital X-ray: Aids in the diagnosis of bone fractures or abnormalities. X-rays can also help doctors diagnose diseases of the lungs, such as pneumonia.
- Fluoroscopy: Uses X-ray videos to show the movement of organs and can help diagnose abnormalities and diseases. Fluoroscopy is commonly used to allow doctors to visualize how substances move through the digestive tract.
- Interventional Radiology: Helps with visualization and treatment of disease. Doctors use live imagery to guide procedures. In some cases, interventional radiology can reduce or eliminate the need for hospitalization or surgery.
- Mammography (including 3D Breast Tomosynthesis): Provides images of the breast that can show breast cancer, often before a patient can feel it. Speak with your healthcare provider to discuss preventive mammography scans based on your health history.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Takes detailed images using magnets and radio waves. MRIs do not use or produce radiation and can help a doctor diagnose disease or injury in organs, blood vessels, and muscles.
- Nuclear Medicine: Produces images by detecting radiation from a radioactive tracer that patients swallow, inject, or inhale. Nuclear medicine can help diagnose conditions of the lungs, heart, brain, kidneys, gallbladder, and thyroid.
- Ultrasound: Uses sound waves to diagnose conditions of the heart, thyroid, breast, muscles, skin, and abdominal organs. Doctors use ultrasound to detect and monitor pregnancy.
Our caring professionals are ready to serve you with advanced imaging services that can help them diagnose and treat many diseases and injuries.
