Ultrasound NYC: Uncountable Reasons for an Aorta Aneurism Screening

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 07, 2012 AT 9:49 AM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Your heart counts approximately 70 to 75 beats per minute for 1440 minutes per day, every day of your life without conscious thought, not including the extra beats it gives you to supply your muscles with oxygen-rich blood to strengthen your body and aid in recovery during exercise. Show a little of the love that your heart shows you every minute of your life by receiving an ultrasound in New York for an aorta aneurism screening at Park Avenue Radiologists. An ultrasound in NY can detect if your aorta is enlarged in the abdomen. Early detection of aorta enlargement can prevent your aorta from bursting, potentially saving your life.

Park Avenue Radiologists offer ultrasound in New York City for aorta aneurism screening in the hopes of detecting any clogged, plague-fill arteries or an enlarged aorta. If your aorta is 5 centimeters in diameter, further monitoring may be necessary to prevent a rupture. An abdominal ultrasound in NYC can also detect if your aneurysm is growing. Large aneurysms may require yearly or biyearly ultrasounds while smaller aneurysms may only need an ultrasound every 2 to 3 years. Regular screenings will keep you informed of your aneurysm’s progress and equip you with the knowledge to take further medical action if necessary. Ultrasounds in New York are painless and non-invasive. They do not involve radiation, but patients will be required to fast 6 hours prior to the examination. By dedicating only 30 to 45 minutes out of your day, you can ensure the health and continued beat of your heart. The knowledge about your aorta and cardiac health that abdominal ultrasounds in NY provides is essential to maintaining a long, healthy life.

Let your heart continue its daily count. Discover more about Park Avenue Radiologists and how abdominal ultrasounds in NY can benefit your cardiac health by visiting Park Avenue Radiologists online!

Pelvis MRI NYC: The Joys of New Life with Uterine and Prostate Health

POSTED ON MONDAY, APRIL 23, 2012 AT 9:27 AM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Spring is the season of life and new growth; flowers begin to bloom after April showers, and baby birds and fawns are finally born, their parents having survived the long, harsh winter. With the joy of new life in the air, spring is the perfect season for men and women to receive the most accurate scan possible to maintain their prostate and uterine health. Park Avenue Radiologists offer the pelvis MRI in New York City to provide patients with a safer and more accurate image of their uterus, ovaries, prostate, and other pelvic organs, so you can feel the joy of new life in any season.

The pelvis MRI in NY is a helpful scan for women who have had an abnormal ultrasound examination. Unlike an ultrasound, the pelvis MRI in NYC examines the characteristics of the organ’s chemical signal. This characteristic of the pelvic MRI is extremely helpful in determining the makeup of ovarian tumors. For instance, the chemical signal characteristics of dermoid tumors differ from those of endometriomas tumors. Although these two tumors appear identical in an ultrasound , the pelvic MRI can distinguish between them by detecting their chemical signal. The pelvis MRI in New York also has the ability to image in all three planes which allows it to distinguish submucosal from intramural fibroids. If a patient does have an ultrasound, also having a pelvis MRI may eliminate the need for an IVP after the ultrasound.  In addition to these technical benefits, the pelvis MRI offers personal benefits as well. Many women still considering the possibility of children often prefer the pelvis MRI compared to other scans because this scan does not involve ionizing radiation.

At Park Avenue Radiologists, women aren’t the only gender who can reap the many benefits of the pelvis MRI in NYC. Using the pelvis MRI on men to evaluate the staging of prostate cancer is becoming increasingly popular. The doctors, technicians, and staff here at Park Avenue Radiologists pride themselves on remaining in the forefront of non-invasive prostatic screening. Whether the pelvis MRI in NY is providing helpful insight on a male or female pelvis, you can rest assured that you’re placing your trust in the most accurate technology for diagnostic imaging available.

Let the advanced technology at Park Avenue Radiologists help you maintain your uterine and prostate health this spring by inquiring about the pelvis MRI in NY. The doctors and staff at Park Avenue Radiologists welcome any questions or concerns you may have about Pelvis MRI in New York or any of the other diagnostic imaging techniques that we provide in our Park Avenue New York office. You can contact us at Park Avenue Radiologists at 212.888.1000, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation.

MRCP in NYC Versus ERCP: The Rise of Diagnostic Radiology

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 AT 3:19 PM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

The rapidly advancing field of radiology provides patients with more and more alternative, less invasive options, such as CT Coronary Angiography, CT Virtual Colonoscopy, CT Lung Scans, and CT Dental Scans, in replacement of traditional procedures. The CT Virtual Colonoscopy, for example, is an easier, less invasive and more comfortable colon screening than a traditional colonoscopy which involves a barium enema before the procedure and sedatives during the procedure. In this way, diagnostic radiology is making necessary screening procedures for heart disease, lung cancer, and colon cancer an easier, less invasive experience. At Park Avenue Radiologists, Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography in NYC (MRCP) is the least invasive option to screen for gallstones, cancer, biliary dyskinesia, or idiopathic pancreatitis instead of the traditional screening method, Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).

Park Avenue Radiologists offers MRCP in New York City as a less invasive option to ERCP to diagnose unexplained abdominal pain and cancer. ERCP uses an endoscope, much like a colonoscopy, to gather images of the stomach and duodenum. Dye can also be used to illuminate the pancreas on an X-ray. Although ERCP is an effective method of screening, it does involve some risks due to the use of sedation and the endoscope. Doctors must take care while using sedation, and to avoid pancreatitis and perforation with the endoscope. During MRCP in NY at Park Avenue Radiologists, however, patients can enjoy the same effective screening of their stomach, duodenum, and pancreas without the risks involved with ERCP. This is possible due to the advanced software used during MRCP in New York which produces images similar to the images that would be obtained through ERCP.

Virtual Colonoscopy NYC: CT Scans for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 AT 4:10 PM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Take the time to protect yourself against untreated colon cancer with a virtual colonoscopy in NYC this March in honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is not the diagnosis anyone wants to hear, but early detection and treatment is the key to a successful and healthy recovery. With the advent of the virtual colonoscopy in New York thanks to the advanced technology in CT scans provided at Park Avenue Radiologists, patients have a less invasive option to screen for colon cancer.

Traditional colonoscopies involve an uncomfortable, invasive procedure which restricts patients to a low fiber and clear-liquid diet for three days and requires them to ingest laxatives or a barium enema on the third, the day before the colonoscopy. This is necessary during a traditional colonoscopy in order to obtain an accurate and useful reading of your colon. The virtual colonoscopy in New York City provided by Park Avenue Radiologists, however, doesn’t require any such preparations before the test and is not invasive. Like any other CT Scan, the virtual colonoscopy in NYC takes approximately five minutes. Each individual scan only takes 8 to 10 seconds which is performed in a single breath hold.

Park Avenue Radiologists offers the most advanced technology in radiology, including CT scans for lung screening, coronary angiography, dental scans, and virtual colonoscopy in NY. Obtaining an accurate and reliable scan is paramount for any purpose, but even more so when scanning for lesions in the effort to detect colon cancer. Patients are sometimes concerned about receiving too much radiation, that they may be harming their bodies in the attempt to screen for cancer, but the advanced screening technology used at Park Avenue Radiologists emits only the necessary amount of radio waves to obtain an accurate and reliable scan.
