Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. This exam uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. Offering unparalleled comfort for patients while delivering the highest precision image quality, Hitachi’s Oasis MRI is the best of it’s kind. As one of the first medical practices offering this machine, we are proud to provide our patients with the best and most specialized care that they deserve. For the comfort of our patients, it is available as an open MRI system.

Our licensed radiologic technologists work closely together with our physicians and physician assistants. Technologists Leonard Lagana and Peter Cota provide the patient images to radiologists Dr. Richard Pinto, Dr. Salvatore DeSena and Dr. Steve Sharon. Physician assistants are also on hand to perform gadolinium injections, if required. The images are then interpreted and provided to our clinical staff in order to form a comprehensive yet personalized treatment plan. We are currently open seven days a week from morning to night. Patients seeking an appointment can do so easily by calling our Imaging Center at (718) 667-7500.
Our new General Electric (GE) Healthcare Optima Extremity MRI system at our 3333 Hylan Boulevard office will offer specific diagnostic imaging of the elbow, hand, wrist, knee, ankle and foot. The machine uses radio waves and a magnetic field to generate images of the inside of the extremity in order to diagnose problems with the muscles, bones, joints, nerves, or blood vessels.
For this kind of exam, you will simply sit in a comfortable chair and place your arm or leg in a small opening in the machine while your head and torso will remain outside of the scanner.
