• Radiology Sections

    Body Imaging

    The Body Imaging section utilizes computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasonography (US), radiography, and fluoroscopy for diagnosis of disease in the abdomen and pelvis. We also perform diagnostic and therapeutic image-guided drainages and biopsies. Our radiologists are responsible for performing and interpreting examinations of the liver, biliary system, colon, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, female pelvis, and prostate as well as non-invasive CT and MR vascular examinations.

    Breast Imaging

    The section provides patients with expert and compassionate care. We offer a full range of diagnostic evaluation and procedures, for the detection and diagnosis of breast disorders. Our service is comprised of fellowship-trained breast imagers who interpret routine and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and Breast Specific Gamma Imaging. We perform stereotactic, ultrasound and MRI guided core biopsies, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration, needle localizations and axillary sentinel node evaluation. We work in close association with our primary care internists and gynecologists, breast surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists, in order to provide each and every patient the best possible care. Most, but not all, services are provided at each of our sites: Phillips Ambulatory Care Center in Union Square, the Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Comprehensive Cancer Center on West 15th street, and Mt. Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital on West 116th street.

    Emergency Radiology

    Emergency Radiology is a sub-specialty of radiology that specializes in the diagnosis of the acutely ill or traumatized patient in the Emergency Department setting. By utilizing multiple imaging modalities, including multi-detector CT, MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray, emergency radiology plays a vital role in the timely diagnosis and management of emergency patients from head to toe. Our radiologists cover the Emergency Department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Interventional Radiology

    The Interventional Radiology section treats multiple conditions including liver disease, uterine fibroid embolization, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), varicose veins, end state renal disease/hemodialysis care, kidney cancer, peripheral arterial disease, and vascular anomalies and malformations. The Interventional Radiology Service is fully integrated to the Mount Sinai Health System with doctors rotating across different hospitals.

    Musculoskeletal Imaging

    The musculoskeletal imaging and procedures section combines our clinical skill and experience with the newest technology to provide diagnostic imaging and therapeutic procedures for bones, joints, and soft tissue. Working closely with colleagues in other disciplines, such as orthopedics, rheumatology, and rehabilitation medicine, our musculoskeletal radiologists offer a wealth of experience in imaging tests ranging from ultrasound to MR arthrography and procedures including therapeutic injections. Bone biopsies are performed in collaboration with the Interventional Radiology section.


    The Neuroradiology section provides imaging interpretation of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography Imaging (CT) of the brain, head, neck and spine. We assess patients for a variety of degenerative, traumatic, neoplastic, vascular and congenital diseases, facilitating accurate diagnoses, so that their primary physicians can implement their appropriate medical management.

    Nuclear Medicine Imaging

    Nuclear medicine (NM) or Scintigraphy involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (radiotracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. The tests are safe and painless. In a nuclear medicine test, the radioactive material is introduced into the body in minute amounts by injection, swallowing or inhalation. Each tracer is designed to migrate to specific organs or tissues and produce emissions that can be captured by a Gamma camera. The camera takes pictures of the inside of your body by detecting the tracer in the organ or tissue being targeted. We see patients with a wide variety of diseases and disorders, including bone infections, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, cancer, thyroid disorders, neurologic diseases, and gastrointestinal disease. In addition, we offer treatment with radioactive iodine for patients with hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer.

    NM Procedures and Preparation 

    Cardiothoracic Imaging

    Thoracic imaging specializes in diseases of the lungs and surrounding tissues. This includes lung cancer screening and malignancy, airway diseases including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, infection, and vascular diseases of the aorta and pulmonary arteries. Diagnostic services include high-resolution chest CT, CT angiography of the aorta and pulmonary arteries, and conventional chest radiography.

    Cardiac Imaging involves both CT and MRI. Cardiac CT imaging includes coronary artery calcium scoring, as well as coronary CT Angiography, an exam used to assess for coronary artery atherosclerosis. Cardiac MRI is used to determine cardiac viability prior to revascularization, to assess for the presence of infiltrative myocardial disease, and to evaluate congenital cardiac anatomy. MRI is also utilized to evaluate the aorta.

    Ultrasound Imaging

    Ultrasound imaging or Sonography uses high frequency sound waves to image internal organs and soft tissue, such as the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder. Ultrasound data, gathered in real-time and displayed on a computer monitor, often is used for examining a fetus in the uterus, studying the flow of blood through veins and arteries, and in diagnosing gallstones and prostate abnormalities. Specialized musculoskeletal sonography is also used for the dynamic evaluation of tendons during joint motion. Since ultrasound uses sound waves, rather than x-rays, to view internal anatomy, the patient is not exposed to radiation. This feature makes ultrasound an important tool for pediatric imaging.
