ABOUT PARK AVENUE RADIOLOGISTS
Park Avenue is one of Manhattan's best established private radiology groups. Located on the Upper Eastside since 1976, Park Avenue Radiologists was one of the first private medical practices in Manhattan to bring MRI & CT imaging technology outside the hospital setting. At Park Avenue, we strive to provide patients with the best medical care and reduce the stress associated with maneuvering through the complicated world of managed care. We use only state-of-the-art medical imaging technology.
By combining innovative medical imaging technology and unmatched patient care, Park Avenue Radiologists and our staff strive to make your medical imaging test the most comfortable procedure possible. Our priority is to obtain clear, concise medical imaging results as promptly and comfortably as possible. Above all else, we value our patients and their sense of comfort and well-being. We provide minimally invasive and non-invasive medical imaging technology to ensure accurate results with little to no patient discomfort.
Today, Park Avenue Radiologists, PC is one of the few full-service radiology practices specializing in MRI, CT, PET / CT imaging, ultrasound, fine needle aspirations, and core biopsies, as well as nuclear imaging, general diagnostic studies, and breast imaging.
We implement the latest technology and practices at Park Avenue Radiologists so that your medical imaging test is as comfortable and accurate as possible. We believe in combining the most advanced medical imaging practices with unparalleled patient care to provide the best in radiology. Some of the services we offer include MRI scans, CT scans, PET / CT imaging, ultrasound, nuclear imaging, breast imaging, DEXA scan, and general diagnostics.
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans use radio waves and a magnetic field to create images of the inside of your body. These images help diagnose a medical condition or gauge the severity of an injury or trauma. An MRI scan can be used to assess the health of almost any part of the body.
Some common MRI scans include a spine MRI, breast MRI, brain MRI, pelvic MRI, and hip MRI. Magnetic resonance imaging can also be used to evaluate the health of your wrists, ankles, feet, shoulders, hips, and more. Our advanced MRI machines are designed to accommodate any sized patient comfortably and provide in-depth, precise results.
A CT (computed tomography) scan of the body uses X-ray technology to help diagnose a variety of medical conditions. CAT scans are shorter than MRI scans and help diagnose the cause of unexplained pain or shortness of breath. Lymphoma, lung cancer, kidney cancer, and other types of cancer can be detected and diagnosed through a CAT scan.
Our CAT scans are specifically designed to provide the most precise, prompt CAT scan results possible. CT scans provide excellent image clarity and quicker exams, resulting in accurate results with less time spent in office.
PET / CT IMAGING
By combining a PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scan with a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan, our radiologists can precisely locate cancerous growths within the body before the start of treatment. A PET scan can detect cancerous cells in the body that emit a specific metabolic signal. In conjunction with a PET scan, a CT scan offers comprehensive images of your internal anatomy that can help determine the placement, size, and shape of a cancerous growth.
By simultaneously undergoing a PET scan and a CAT scan, your results will depict a clearer and more complete image that can help our radiologists determine what is occurring on an anatomical and metabolic level within your body.
An ultrasound, also known as a sonogram, obtains pictures of your internal organs and body by using soundwaves that record and display images onto a monitor. An efficient diagnostic tool, ultrasound technology can help evaluate the health of various organs and body parts to diagnose pain or other unexplained symptoms. An ultrasound can produce live images of your organs on a monitor by using soundwaves instead of forms of radiation.
Our radiologists can capture images in real time that depict the health of tissues, organs, blood flow, heart valve functions, and the condition of an embryo or fetus within the womb of an expecting mother.
By analyzing molecular changes in your body, nuclear imaging can detect abnormalities and diagnose illnesses before symptoms become apparent. Nuclear imaging is able to determine changes on a molecular scale through the emission of small amounts of radioactive materials that are given orally in a pill form or intravenously through an injection. These radioactive materials, referred to as radiotracers, travel to the area of your body that you are having examined and then will emit energy.
In return, this energy can be detected by a specialized computer and camera, which will create comprehensive pictures of your internal organs.
Breast imaging is a medical imaging test that can help detect signs of breast cancer or abnormalities of the breasts. Common forms of breast imaging include mammograms, breast ultrasounds, breast MRI scans, and breast biopsies. Mammograms are an important test to detect breast cancer early. A breast ultrasound can also be used to evaluate breast growths or abnormalities.
Additionally, an ultrasound can be used when taking a biopsy of the breast to minimize the loss of healthy tissue. For more extensive breast screening, a breast MRI scan creates detailed images of the breast and internal structures. A breast MRI scan may be ordered if abnormal results are found during a breast exam.
A DEXA scan is a test to determine bone density and the risk of suffering a bone fracture or break. Using a low dose of radiation, a DEXA scan is able to produce images of your body (commonly your hips and spine) to evaluate signs of low bone density. DEXA scans can help to determine and diagnose osteoporosis, a bone disease that results in your body losing more bone than it is able to produce, making too little bone, or a combination of both.
A DEXA scan can also detect osteopenia, a form of bone loss that happens when your body cannot produce new bone as quickly as it is being absorbed.
X-ray scans are a diagnostic tool that use a low dose of ionizing radiation in order to create pictures of your body’s organs and bones. An X-ray can help diagnose or gauge the severity of a broken or fractured bone. Our radiologists can also evaluate a possible injury or infection, determine if you are healthy enough to move forward with a future surgery, or to locate foreign objects within your soft tissues.
While X-ray technology is typically implemented to assess broken bones, it may also be used to diagnose illnesses such as pneumonia. Other forms of medical imaging, such as mammograms, use X-ray technology to help detect the presence of abnormalities or medical conditions.

Had a 9am appointment on a weekday and I was out by 10. Staff was all very friendly and my MRI technician was really great. He walked me through exactly what was going to happen and made the process about as enjoyable as an MRI can be.

I just had an MRI here and it was not a problem at all. I arrived at 3:50 for a 4PM appointment and walked out of the door at 4:55. The MRI technician was great. I was very anxious and he was incredibly calming. Everyone was helpful and friendly.

I had an MRI done here this morning. The reception staff were all friendly and nice. I thought the sign in kiosks were great. Simply put your license and your insurance card on it, answer a few simple questions and you are done. I was called in within ten minutes, had my MRI done within two minutes after that.
The appointment set up was flawless. They called me to set up the appointment within a half hour of my doctor's visit. When I couldn't take their call, they followed up with me the next morning.

I went to Park Avenue Radiology for an X-Ray and since it was a sort of an emergency, the front desk people were able to squeeze me in. The techs were very pleasant and courteous.
My doctor received the report right away as well, and he also told me that his other patients also had good things to say about Park Avenue Radiology.
I'd definitely recommend this practice over other ones I have previously been to.
- Adeel P.
I really appreciate the scenery of the office. Everywhere is nice and neat. Everything is up to date from the signing in with computer screen scan. The staff here in the front was very respectful with greeting you with a smile. The professionalism from staff was superb. I was given proper instructions on how to change for the MRI. I'm so grateful to have access to such an excellent resource for my MRI needs. I recommend others to come here. You will have no regrets.
- Yalanda B.
Great doctors and staff. I was in and out quickly and the doctors made my scan very comfortable. Will return.
Left this facility with a very warm, home-like feeling. They make you feel comfortable and at ease. Almost forgot why I was there in the first place. Thank you.
- Rachel Y.
The tech that took care of me was a wonderful person. Made the exam comfortable. Very efficient. Very accommodating on scheduling. I showed up late and was seen quickly. Incredibly fast, almost no wait. It was a great experience.
- Jesus T.
I recently took my mom for a PET scan at Park Avenue Radiology. I was impressed by their hospitable and courteous staff. My mom was first debriefed about the procedure by a highly knowledgeable staff and was then comforted throughout the scan time.
My mom has been to many radiology practices before but she loved the treatment she received at Park Avenue Radiology. She has asked me to bring her here for all her future radiology visits.
- Saf Y.
They have the most professional, kind, compassionate, helpful staff in the industry. It's always a bit nerve wracking taking diagnostics, but their staff has always put me at ease. I actually look forward to coming to their office.
