CT Scans NYC:  If you’re a heavy smoker or a former smoker above the age of 55, it is recommended you have a CT Scan annually. CT Scans combine sophisticated imaging of the internal organs, bones, soft tissue, and blood vessels, revealing a detailed image of the lungs. At our practice, we offer Low Dose CT Scans to help detect lung disease, while using up to 65% less radiation. Learn more about Low Dose CT Scans in NYC.   

PET Imaging Manhattan: If cancer, seizures, or Alzheimer’s run in your family, it is important you schedule your PET Scans. PET Scans specialize in the dementias of the brain and are a common method of helping to detect and track the onset of Alzheimer ’s disease, as well as the focus of epilepsy seizures. In addition, PET imaging is effective in detecting cancer of the brain or if there is any recurrence of past cancer. Learn more about PET Imaging in Manhattan.

Breast Imaging NYC: According to the American Cancer Society, yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40. For women in their 20s and 30s, a clinical breast exam should be conducted every 3 years. Women who have a genetic family history of breast cancer however, should seek a breast MRI in addition to their mammograms. Early detection saves lives. Mark your calendar for your breast imaging in NYC. Learn more: NYC Breast Scan.

MRI New York City: We all know that aging comes with unwanted aches and pains. However, did you know as men and women age, the more at risk they are to develop prostate or ovarian cancer. If you are age 55 or older, it is recommended you schedule an annual Pelvic MRI in NYC. However, if you are considered at risk or have a family history, it may be recommended more often. Park Avenue Radiologists is one of only a few facilities in the city to house the Open MRI. Known as the MAGNETOM Espree, this novel system provides a comfortable scan, without the claustrophobia caused by traditional MRIS. The Open MRI fits patients of all sizes and allows patients to be scanned with their head outside the system. In addition to the open MRI, we provide Breast MRI’s for accurate diagnosis of breast cancer. Learn more about our MRI in New York City.

Bone Density Scan Manhattan: If you are over the age of 55 or post-menopausal, a current smoker, or have a history of osteoporosis, then mark your calendar for a Bone Density Scan in Manhattan. Offering the advanced DEXA Scan, we can effectively monitor the mineral density of your bone for proper diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. Learn more about the Bone Density Scan in Manhattan.
