New York Spine Institute uses high-quality diagnostic imaging: a high field short bore 1.5T MRI system and Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray for our patients in Amityville, NY.

The high field short bore 1.5T MRI system can be used in a broad range of clinical applications including but not limited to MRI’s of the Spine, Brain, Abdomen, Pelvis, Shoulder, Knee, Hip, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Ankle, and Foot. *

New York Spine Institute’s innovative GE 1.5T system gives our back specialists sharp imagery of anatomy and pathology to validate their diagnosis of various musculoskeletal disorders.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is especially valuable to physicians for diagnosing complex physical conditions.

Sometimes it can be tedious to identify conditions when utilizing other methods like x-ray, ultrasound, or CT (Computed Tomography). *

We know that going to the doctor can be anxiety-inducing, which is why we strive to furnish our patients with the most comforting atmosphere possible during their visit. We make this possible by creating a tranquil atmosphere with your choice of music, earplugs, and a sleeping mask to help you feel more comfortable.
