Low Dose Radiation NYC: Know Your Role in Reducing Radiation

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 AT 12:10 PM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Radiation exposure is a natural occurrence in everyone’s day to day lives. We receive radiation from nature, such as the soil and the sun’s rays, traveling on air planes, in space shuttles, and interacting with the protons and electrons that surround us. Radiation exposure isn’t necessarily harmful depending on the dosage and proximity of the radiation you are exposed to as well as if you have any protection against that radiation, such as sun block against the harmful rays of the sun. On days you receive x-rays in NYC, you will of course be exposing yourself to more radiation than you would on a normal daily basis. The doctors and staff at Park Avenue Radiologists take every precaution against overexposure to radiation and provide the most recent, highest quality technology for all their patients. The most recent developments in x-rays in NY and CT scans in New York are equipped to avoid too much radiation exposure while still producing an accurate reading. Doctors, radiographers, equipment manufacturers, patients, and parents all have a role in reducing radiation in New York City, and together we can make the field of radiology a safer place while still benefiting from the knowledge these scans provide. 

The doctors and staff at Park Avenue Radiologists ensure that the equipment we use for each patient is reliable and produces the least amount of radiation needed to provide accurate results. Both the patient and technician conducting the scan are protected as much as possible using what is known as ALARA, or As Low As Reasonably Achievable, to ensure that each individual patient and each individual body part are receiving the optimum radiation dose in order to prevent over radiation exposure and ensure a detailed reading. Park Avenue Radiologists provides scan only when absolutely necessary. Patients can help prevent overexposure to radiation by keeping a personal record of the tests they’ve done and when, especially when travelling between different doctors and when tests are being conducted on children. Discuss your personal imaging record with your doctors, so together you can determine the necessity of repeated exposure to radiation.  

Know your role in reducing radiology, whether you are a doctor, parent, radiologist, or patient, so you can make informed decisions about radiation exposure in the future. Protect yourself and others against the harmful side effects of over exposure by working together to ensure that the radiation you receive is the lowest dose possible. The doctors and staff at Park Avenue Radiologists welcome any questions or concerns you may have about the low dose radiation 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.

CT Scans NYC May Detect COPD: Make Regular Radiology Your New Year’s Resolution

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 AT 1:14 PM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

The field of radiology is constantly adapting and improving in order to better serve patients with regularly scheduled scans, the early detection of diseases, and an alternative option to unpleasant procedures, like a colonoscopy. Make regularly scheduled CT scans in NY a priority on your list of resolutions for the New Year, especially patients who smoke and have a higher risk of developing COPD. Recent radiology studies show a trend in the detection of COPD in patients undergoing lung cancer screening with CT, or computed tomography, scans. The doctors, technicians, and staff at Park Avenue Radiologists offer CT Scans in New York for regular screening, Coronary Angioplasty, Virtual Colonoscopy, and now detection of COPD in NYC.

A study conducted at the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands demonstrated that a substantial portion of current or former heavy smokers receiving CT scans in NY as a regular screening test for lung cancer were detected as having COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This study suggests that CT scans may be a useful tool in addition to spirometry, the traditional method of testing for COPD, in early detection. Park Avenue Radiologists offers the highest quality and most technologically advanced CT scans in NYC, so you can feel comfortable knowing you’re receiving the most accurate possible reading while receiving the least possible amount of radiation. Should CT scans continue to prove reliable in the detection of COPD during additional studies, CT scans in NY is an extremely convenient method of detection. Patients who smoke and already receive regular CT Scans in New York City as a precaution against lung cancer won’t have to take additional screening tests for the early detection of COPD. One CT scan in NYC can serve as screening tests for both lung cancer and COPD. Also, regular CT scans in combination with spirometry tests may increase the chances of early detection of COPD, especially considering that spirometry tests alone reliably detect COPD before symptoms offer.

Despite the New Year’s resolutions that may have gone unrealized this past year, resolve to be more diligent with your COPD screening tests and CT scans in NYC this year for the sake of your lung health and overall wellbeing. Take advantage of Park Avenue Radiologists’ state-of-the-art equipment, skills, and service, and the doctors at Park Avenue Radiologists and their staff resolve to provide you with the most accurate results available in radiology. We encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about the early detection of COPD or the CT Scans 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.

Image Gently CT Scan NYC: Let the Holiday Lights Glow Instead of You

POSTED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2011 AT 3:06 PM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

CT scans are an important aspect of maintaining a healthy body. They can be used for standard screening of the coronary arteries of high risk patients and as an alternate option for colonoscopy. Overexposure to radiation, however, can be a concern. Park Avenue Radiologists offers the most technologically advanced equipment in radiology. Our CT scans in NYC are equipped with Siemens Care Dose4D, reducing radiation exposure in radiology as a part of the “image gently” campaign. Our CT technologists are certified as “image gently” to ensure the least possible exposure to radiation, so the holiday lights will be the only thing glowing this December.

The doctors and technicians at Park Avenue Radiologists use Siemens Care Dose4D CT scanners to provide patients with the most accurate CT scan in NY with the least amount of radiation exposure. Traditional CT scans in New York are those which use a manually selected fixed tube current. This technology involves the technician choosing a tube current value, and the entire scan is performed using that fixed value despite the patient’s size and constitution. This could potentially lead to misdiagnoses due to too little radiation or over exposure to radiation depending on the patient. The image gently Siemens Care Dose4D CT scans in New York that Park Avenue Radiologists provides, however, adjusts throughout the scan to accommodate for the individual size and constitution of each patient. For example, slim patients need less radiation than obese patients in order to scan with the same results, but an obese patient who is weaker than another obese patient will receive less radiation to accommodate for their lower constitution. These scanners can not only change on a patient to patient basis, but they can also change radiation levels during a scan, such as if a person has a weaker shoulder compared to a strong hip, or slim legs compared to an obese stomach. Our Siemens Care Dose4D CT scans in New York here at Part Avenue Radiologists provide more control and individuality on a patient to patient and feature to feature basis, so we can adjust our scanner to match your needs.

Maintain your cardiac and colon health this holiday season with a visit to Park Avenue Radiologists and their Siemens Care Dose4D CT scans in New York. The doctors at Park Avenue Radiologists and their staff welcome you to voice any questions or concerns you may have about the CT scans 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.

CT Virtual Colonoscopy NYC: The Convenient Colonoscopy

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2011 AT 10:24 AM by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Traditional colonoscopies involve a great amount of inconvenient and often uncomfortable preparation which could potentially included taking laxatives, a barium enema, consuming only clear liquid for one to three days, and not eating solid foods for two to three days prior to your test. This preparation for a traditional colonoscopy can disrupt your daily schedule and discourage people from participating in a helpful check-up to maintain your colon health which may result in early detection of colon cancer. The CT Virtual Colonoscopy in New York, however, provides the benefits of early colon cancer detection without the hassle of pre-test preparation, an uncomfortably invasive procedure, or a sedative. The technicians at Park Avenue Radiologists can perform a CT Virtual Colonoscopy in NY in less than five minutes. Patients will be required to follow a simple bowel preparation and air will be insufflated through the colon. The CT scan itself is taken in ten seconds during a single breath hold. Patients find the CT Virtual Colposcopy an overall more pleasant experience both in terms of preparation and the procedure itself when compared to traditional colonoscopy.

The CT Virtual Colonoscopy along with our “fly through” 3D imaging software provides a similar image to what gastroenterologists see during a traditional colonoscopy. Our new scanner maximizes the sensitivity for detecting small lesions with its volumetric imaging, protecting our patients with accurate and precise colon health updates. The doctors at Park Avenue Radiologists and their staff welcome you to voice any questions or concerns you may have about the CT Virtual Colonoscopy 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.
