Radiology services offered at Northwell Health Imaging at Smithtown include:
- MRI scan – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of a large magnet, radiofrequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body. Northwell Health Imaging at Smithtown offers this procedure using a 3T wide bore MRI machine.
- CT scan – Also known as a CAT scan, this diagnostic imaging procedure uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce images of the body. Northwell Health Imaging at Smithtown offers this procedure using a 64-slide low dose CT scan machine.
- Ultrasound - An ultrasound is a noninvasive diagnostic procedure used to assess soft tissue structures such as muscles, blood vessels and organs. It uses sound waves that bounce off the organs like an echo and are converted by a computer into an electronic picture of the organs or tissues under study.
- Digital X-ray – X-rays use electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs.
- Comprehensive breast imaging services, including:
- 3D mammogram – Also known as a digital mammogram or digital breast tomosynthesis, 3D mammography allows the radiologist to examine breast tissue one layer at a time. This improves the ability to detect abnormalities while reducing false alarms due to overlapping tissue.
- Breast biopsy (ultrasound-guided, MRI-guided and stereotactic) – A biopsy is a procedure done to remove tissue or cells from the body for further examination.
- Breast ultrasound – An ultrasound, also commonly referred to as a sonogram, is a diagnostic imaging procedure used to view internal organs as they function and to assess blood flow through vessels.
