Our Instrumentation, Our People
Cutting-edge diagnostic equipment at Montefiore Medical Center includes plain X-ray films, ultrasound, MRI, including open MRI and pediatric MRI, CAT scans, fluoroscopy, and a full line of mammographic services. But our modern equipment is just a part of what makes Montefiore Advanced Imaging a leader in the field. Our radiologists are dedicated specialists, which means that the physician who interprets your ultrasound, MRI or CAT scan is an expert in that particular type of scan and in helping to diagnose specific types of disorders. At Montefiore, we believe in a focused approach to imaging and illnesses. You wouldn't go to an eye doctor to get help with a foot problem. Why treat your MRI or CAT scans any differently?
Integrating Imaging and Treatment
The advanced radiology capabilities at Montefiore make it possible to combine imaging studies with treatment, so that your doctors can determine how a treatment is progressing in real time, while it's happening. This integration between imaging and treatment ranks Montefiore radiology as among the most advanced facilities in our area.
PACS—Information Instantly Wherever It's Needed
The days of carrying X-ray films from one doctor to another are over. The Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) has revolutionized how physicians look at the results of MRIs, CAT scans, and similar studies.
