Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is useful for diagnosing many conditions. It is safe and noninvasive, and helps NYSI to uphold its mission of treating patients with comfort. The digital radiology department allows the radiologist to analyze images for bone and soft tissue anatomy. NYSI diagnostic imaging provides individualized care as well as state-of-the-art diagnostics.
We often opt for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to aid in diagnosis. The MRI is a commonly used imaging tool that is both noninvasive and safe. High quality images of the inner anatomical structure are produced and analyzed by our team of radiologists in our digital radiology department.
The MRI is the main imaging tool used due to its fast and painless nature, allowing for visibility of inside conditions that may be undetectable otherwise.
Our radiologists serving Lynbrook, NY utilize a high-field short-bore 1.5T MRI system and Digital Radiography (DX) X-Ray technology. The high field short bore 1.5T MRI system can be used for a wide range of clinical applications, including but not limited to: spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, hand, ankle, foot.
The NYSI’s digital radiology department also offers the GE 1.5T system, which produces detailed anatomical pictures used to evaluate musculoskeletal disorders.
Several of the NYSI’s locations house a digital radiography department for the convenience of our Lynbrook, NY patients. This technology is used to exam inner bone and tissue anatomy. In scoliosis patients, we offer Long Length Imaging (LLI), an imaging tool specifically designed for scoliosis.
Our Lynbrook, NY patients are important to us, and we strive to provide them with the most comfortable environment possible. For our patients we offer the option to play music, or provide earplugs and a sleeping mask. We believe we can only truly achieve the highest level of excellence if our patients are as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
