The Division of Neuroradiology specializes in advanced imaging of the brain, spine, spinal cord, head and neck, and neurovascular system in adult and pediatric patients. Our team of board certified and CAQ certified neuroradiologists and neurointerventional radiologists work closely with the neurosurgeons, neurologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, endocrinologists, ENT, orthopedists, and generalist physicians in helping diagnose and treat a widespread spectrum of disorders affecting the central nervous system.

The department of radiology in cooperation with the department of anesthesiology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center has developed a premier sedation service for children and adults having imaging studies such as MRI and CT scans. The program is run with a dedicated team of pediatric anesthesiologists and nurses to help ensure a positive experience for the patient and parent. The sedation program at Long Island Jewish served over 1500 sedations in the year of 2008. We are committed to quality patient scans in a timely and safe manner.
