The cardiothoracic radiologists at Northwell Health Imaging are specialists in all aspects of pulmonary and cardiac imaging, including lung cancer screening and diagnosis and evaluation of airway diseases linked to occupational exposures, benign and malignant conditions of the lungs and pleura (the membranes around the lungs), coronary artery disease and congenital or acquired diseases of the heart. We emphasize quality, caring and close integration with the clinical specialists throughout Northwell Health, New York state’s largest health system.
- Our state-of-the-art technology provides highly precise, accurate images using a variety of methods, including chest X-rays, computed tomography (CT scan) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our radiology physicians, technologists and physicists are specifically trained in radiation safety. Whenever ionizing (X-ray) radiation is used, we are committed to limiting your exposure to the lowest dose necessary to make the proper diagnosis.
- Our cardiothoracic imaging radiologists are subspecialists with years of additional training in their clinical area. Subspecialized radiologists are better able to stay on top of new advances in their field of concentration and sharpen their diagnostic eye and analytic ability by reading a high volume of images in their area of specialization.
- Our full integration with specialists across Northwell Health means that we are a vital part of your health care team. Our physicians routinely participate in multidisciplinary conferences, closely collaborating with pulmonologists, cardiologists, cardiac and thoracic surgeons, oncologists and thoracic pathologists to make treatment decisions and ensure the highest level of care.
