X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine


The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine was invented in 1977 and has since revolutionized medical practices everywhere. It is a useful, non-invasive, and safe way to help diagnose conditions. Our MRI machine in Commack will give our doctors the tools that they need to analyze your bones and soft tissue anatomy.

Our office for our Commack patients have state of the art and technologically advanced diagnostic tools. In addition to our 1.5 MRI system, we also have a Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

Our high-field short bore 1.5 MRI system supports many clinical situations. We can do MRI scans of the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, and even the foot!

New York Spine Institute’s brand-new GE 1.5 system will also provide our physicians with their best images yet. With this system, our doctors will be able to see high-quality and detailed pictures of your condition. That way, they can try to more accurately diagnose and eventually treat your neck pain.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging tool. It uses magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. It is extremely safe, non-invasive, and helpful to physicians. Many times, an MRI scan will pick up the presence of a certain disease when other tools such as x-rays cannot.

We know that spine and neck treatment can be scary. It’s a very sensitive part of the anatomy and it is difficult to know who to trust with it. But we care deeply about our patients. We want you to have a positive experience with us and feel at home. So we have made our office as calming as possible. When you come here, you will have access to relaxing music, earplugs, and even sleeping masks.

Our office for our Commack patients is even outfitted with its own digital radiology department. In this part of our practice, the images are digitized and radiologists can analyze bone and soft tissue. As part of this, we also offer Long Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.

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