The Division of Radiology of Stony Brook Children's provides diagnostic imaging and interventional procedures for neonates, infants, children, adolescents, and pregnant women.
Our radiologists, technologists, nursing team, and support staff are committed to safety first and making your visit to our hospital and department efficient and pleasurable. Imaging and image-guided therapies are performed using state-of-the art technologies and protocols. This includes use of a 320-multislice CT scanner to deliver the lowest possible radiation exposure and a 3T MRI scanner to achieve the highest possible image quality with no radiation. Our academic- and research-based approach, combined with use of the latest technologies, makes Stony Brook Children’s the most advanced pediatric radiology program in the region.
Diagnostic radiology uses medical imaging technology to see into the body without surgery, pinpointing and identifying disorders.
Modalities include radiography (“x-rays”), fluoroscopy (“fluoro”), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine. Interventional Radiology Interventional radiology is a specialized service using image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures, both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Procedures include vascular access, enteric access, biopsies, drainages, catheter angiography, angioplasty, nephrostograms with nephrostomy drainage, and transhepatic cholangiograms with biliary drainage.
Imaging services available in both facilities include x-ray, CT Scan, Dexa (bone density scan), Mammography, MRI (3T) and Ultrasound.
