X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine


State of the art diagnostic imaging, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used when diagnosing conditions, especially when the use of x-rays, ultrasounds or CT (Computer Tomography) are unsuccessful. MRIs have many benefits besides the fact that they are painless, safe and non-invasive. They also provide back doctors with the tools needed to carry on their efforts to design and prescribe effective treatment plans. MRIs have proven to be valuable in diagnosing a wide range of conditions and allow bone and soft tissue anatomy images to be viewed and analyzed.

Our premier NYSI diagnostic imaging contributes to the individualized care and treatment plans put in place for all our patients. Here in Oceanside, our innovative diagnostic imaging includes a high field short bore 1.5T MRI system that supports clinical applications for the Spine, Brain, Abdomen, Pelvis, Shoulder, Knee, Hip, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Ankle and Foot as well as Digital Radiography (DX) x-rays. In addition, the NYSI is now equipped with a new GE 1.5T system that produces high quality pictures of anatomy and pathology which aids in the evaluation and assessment of musculoskeletal disorders. Our clinic is also equipped with Long Length Imaging (LLI) for scoliosis assessments.

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