Radiologists diagnose and treat illnesses using equipment like X-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The expert team at NewYork-Presbyterian provides a full spectrum of diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology services to children and adults.
We provide radiology exams at locations throughout Manhattan and Westchester County, including at state-of-the art facilities such as a specialized PET Center, several comprehensive women's imaging centers, and an MRI Center which combines cutting edge MRI research with the most up-to-date diagnostic care.
Our radiologists from Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine are leaders in their fields, many of whom are internationally recognized for their contributions to the advancement of diagnostic care.
Services We Provide
We provide a full range of diagnostic tests, including:
- Computed tomography (CT) scans. A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive x-ray examination used to take a series of detailed pictures that provide a multidimensional look at your body tissues and structure.
- X-ray and fluoroscopy. X-ray, the most common form of diagnostic imaging, uses a low dose of radiation to diagnose problems. Fluoroscopy is a live X-ray technique used to observe both the structure and function of organs in real time.
- Interventional radiology. Interventional radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology that uses imaging to guide minimally-invasive procedures that diagnose and treat many conditions. Learn more about interventional radiology.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI is a noninvasive and painless exam in which radio waves and powerful magnets linked to a computer create remarkably clear and detailed pictures of organs and tissues inside the body, without the use of radiation.
- Mammography. A mammogram is a low dose X-ray exam that is used to detect breast problems and changes. Mammography is the most effective screening tool for breast cancer and can detect changes in your breast that are too small to feel.
- Nuclear Medicine. Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose or treat disorders such as inflammation, tumors, and pain. It is also used to identify abnormalities very early in a disease, sometimes long before medical problems can be detected using other diagnostic tests.
- Ultrasound (sonography). Ultrasound produces pictures of the inside of the body using high-frequency sound waves that bounce off tissues and organs in real time.
