A picture of health

Our highly-experienced, board-certified radiologists in New York and New Jersey use the most advanced technology to provide a full range of imaging techniques, with expertise in body imaging, neuroradiology (brain), musculoskeletal imaging and women’s-specific imaging.

Our radiologists work closely with your primary care physician and other specialists. Using the Optum digital network, your care team can immediately access imaging for rapid and accurate diagnoses, so you can begin treatment sooner.

Imaging services¹

Body and prostate imaging²

Body and prostate imaging refers to medical imaging techniques used to visualize and assess the abdomen, reproductive, gastrointestinal areas and the prostate gland. These imaging techniques provide detailed images of the organs, tissues, and structures within the body, allowing healthcare professionals to diagnose and monitor various conditions.

Bone Density Scan /DEXA or DXA scan (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry)

A bone density scan, also called DEXA or DXA, uses X-rays to create an image of a bone. It’s the most common way to measure bone strength.

CT or CAT scan (computed tomography)

A CT or CAT scan uses a computer and a special type of X-ray to measure bones and organs. The image shows what objects look like “sliced,” but without any cutting. Our scanners get the best image quality at a faster speed and with a smaller amount of radiation.

Cardiac CT Calcium scoring²

Cardiac CT for Calcium Scoring is a test that uses special x-ray machine to take pictures of the coronary arteries. These pictures can show if there is any blockage or narrowing due to plaque buildup. The results of this test can help determine if you have heart conditions or if you are at higher risk for a heart attack.

Coronary CT angiography²

Coronary CT angiography is a medical test that looks at the arteries that supply blood to the heart. It uses a special dye and CT scan to check if these arteries are blocked.

Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy uses video to see parts of the body as they move in real time. This lets doctors watch a heart as it pumps or see how someone swallows, for example.

Mammography (breast X-ray)

A Mammogram is used to screen for breast cancer. It uses X-rays to take digital images of the breast. Some locations offer 3D mammography so breast tissue can be seen one layer at a time. This makes it easier to spot problems.

MRA (magnetic resonance angiography)

MRA uses the same technology as an MRI to look at blood vessels throughout your body.

MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)

MRI uses magnets and radio waves to get pictures of the head, spine, joints and other parts of the body. We offer both closed and open MRI scans. Open MRI can get high-quality images without the feeling of being in a closed tube.

Advanced MRI options

We understand a closed MRI can heighten anxiety and discomfort for some. For your added comfort, Optum offers sedated MRI. Even at its most minimal form, it can help you relax through the procedure.

MRI sedation is best for patients who are prone to anxiety, claustrophobia or unable to remain still for an extended period of time.

If you are scheduled for an MRI, and think you would benefit from sedation, talk to your provider about options in advance.

Neuroradiology²

Neuroradiology is a specialized branch of radiology that focuses in identifying disorders in the brain, spine, and head and neck.

Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine uses a small amount of radioactive material in the body called a tracer. Cameras show where the tracers go, which lets doctors see how well a body part is working. This helps doctors find the cause of medical problems.

PET scan (positron-emission tomography)

A PET scan uses a small amount of radioactive material called a radiotracer. Once inside the body, a radiotracer can be seen by a special camera. A PET scan can often find early signs of disease before imaging tests can.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound uses sound waves to form pictures of the inside of the body.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound²

Uses sound waves to create images of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and joints in the body. It helps doctors diagnose injuries and conditions like sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, and arthritis.

Vascular ultrasound²

Vascular ultrasound uses sound waves to check the body’s circulation. It can find blockages in the arteries and veins and locate blood clots. A Doppler ultrasound is often included in this test to look at blood flow in a blood vessel.

Vascular interventional radiology²

Vascular interventional radiology is a specialized field within radiology in which health professionals use imaging techniques to assist in performing minor surgeries on blood vessels, like placing a stent or widening a narrowed vessel.

X-Ray

The X-ray is the oldest type of medical imaging. It’s still used most often today. X-rays can create a picture of the inside of the body in different shades of black and white.

Women’s imaging

Regular breast cancer screenings are one of the most important aspects of women’s preventive health. We work with cutting-edge technologies that enhance the safety of our patients through reduced exposure to radiation, and offer the highest resolution of imaging for more accurate diagnoses.
