X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine



At NYSI in Astoria, NY, we steadily continue to make use of improved technologies. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows radiologists to properly evaluate injuries or medical conditions by giving them extremely detailed and sharp images of bone and soft tissue anatomy.* NYSI advanced diagnostic imaging gives us with the necessary tools to accurately give individualized care and treatment to our patients.

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

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

New York Spine Institute’s latest GE 1.5T system gives our back doctors exceedingly sharp, accurate images of anatomy and pathology that supports their evaluation of an extensive range of musculoskeletal disorders.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has confirmed it is a highly secure and helpful tool enabling physicians to distinguish multiple back and neck conditions. It manipulates magnetism and radio waves to create precise images of the body. Our doctors then assess each of these images for particular conditions or other issues. MRI works better in most instances whereas other methods, like x-ray, ultrasound, or CT (Computed Tomography), do not help them with a diagnosis.*

We work hard to give our clients a comfortable atmosphere so they can relax during their appointment. We provide you with a selection of music, earplugs, and a sleeping mask to help you feel secure and at ease.

Our radiologists in our digital radiography department use the superior digitized photos of bone and soft tissue anatomy to name a variety of conditions. A scoliosis diagnosis is often determined through the use of Long Length Imaging (LLI).


*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
