North Shore-LIJ Imaging at Garden City
North Shore-LIJ Imaging at Garden City offers extensive imaging capabilities supporting a wide range of goals, including primary diagnosis, the tracking of treatment progress, pre-surgical testing and post-operative analysis.
When utilizing the North Shore-LIJ Imaging, patients have access to the largest group of sub-specialized, fellowship-trained radiologists on Long Island. In addition to board certified radiologists, patients will be cared for by a team of registered nurses and certified technologists. The staff members are committed to quality and offer exceptional clinical service.
Through the North Shore-LIJ Imaging computer imaging system, images can be sent to consulting radiologists with the highest level of interpretive skills to assure each patient gets the most timely, accurate recommendations for follow up care. Images and reports are produced digitally for fast, efficient retrieval. Images are also available to patients on CD.
North Shore-LIJ Imaging now offers the latest emerging technology in mammography – digital breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography). This new 3D technology allows the radiologist to examine breast tissue one layer at a time and thereby improves the radiologist’s ability to detect lesions and reduce false alarms due to overlapping tissue. The new 3D digital mammogram is acquired with a small increase in radiation dose. The radiation dose for the entire exam will still remain below federal standards for routine mammography.
North Shore-LIJ Imaging at Garden City accepts all major insurances and offers free, convenient parking. This facility is an extension clinic of North Shore University Hospital.
