The Radiology Department’s Musculoskeletal Imaging Division offers a broad range of state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services. The section is staffed by six fellowship-trained musculoskeletal radiologists, and our available equipment includes 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla closed magnets, a low field-strength open magnet and multislice CT scanners.
The imaging modalities offered are plain radiography, MRI, computed tomography and musculoskeletal sonography. Our procedures include MR arthrography, bone and soft tissue biopsies, steroid and anesthetic joint and trigger point injections, bursography and tenography. Our thin-slice capability in CT is ideal for use in multiplanar workstation reformatting and for minimizing hardware artifacts. Images generated in any of the modalities can be easily accessed by referring clinicians using Montefiore’s PACS system.
Accurate, early diagnosis is crucial to the successful treatment of breast cancer. Montefiore uses the latest diagnostic approaches and technologies, ranging from traditional mammography and breast clinical exams to needle or surgical biopsy of tumors. Our diagnostic approach is key to providing our patients with an accurate understanding of their health and a sound treatment plan overseen by a team of dedicated professionals.
Our mammographers are dedicated, in that the large majority of their work is in imaging the breast. Our statistics are carefully tracked to ensure that we offer the highest quality and most accurate breast imaging services available.
Headaches, brain aneurysms and stroke affect millions of people each year. Successful treatment and outcomes depend on early diagnosis with high quality imaging. Back pain is often disabling, and can be due to bony, or disc related conditions causing nerve root compression, or to compression fractures due to osteoporosis. These are easily treated once the cause has been clearly defined by state of the art imaging.
High resolution, 64 slice CT scanners and 3T MRI systems are routinely utilized to acquire images for multiplanar and 3D reconstructions. These studies are generated by highly sophisticated software programs, using the Terra Recon system. Our skilled team of ten professional board certified neuroradiologists, with additional certification in their subspecialty, use these resources to diagnose, plan treatment for, and provide follow-up of nervous system diseases. Highly specialized neurointerventional treatment is available as necessary, utilizing 3D angiography.
