The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) has some of the most advanced imaging equipment anywhere in New York. With a new 64-slice CT, MRI, Ultrasound, SPECT/CT, digital angiography suite, and a computer-guided linear accelerator for cancer patients, we’ve raised the standard of care for radiology in downtown Brooklyn.
We’re proud of our state-of-the-art tools, but we’re even prouder of the technicians who operate them, and the doctors who interpret the images they produce. With four years of medical school and at least five years of post-graduate training, our Board Certified Radiologists make the complex interpretations of radiologic images necessary to diagnose and treat disease.
We use the latest technology to determine the nature of your illness. After diagnosis, we measure
your progress throughout the entire course of treatment.
TBHC Radiology does more than provide great diagnostic care. Using advanced digital images to guide them, our Interventional Radiologists perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures such as uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), dialysis access maintenance, and painless same-day treatment of varicose veins. And, along with our Radiation Oncologists, they apply a variety of techniques to stop, shrink and destroy tumors.
TBHC’s Interventional Radiologists perform outpatient procedures offering the same benefits as surgery but with less discomfort, fewer complications, and shorter recovery times. Some of the many diseases and conditions our Interventional Radiologists treat include:
Radiation Oncologists and Interventional Radiologists use an arsenal of weapons against cancer tumors—highly targeted radiation, chemicals, even extreme heat and cold. Some of these techniques kill cancer cells on contact while others work by cutting off the tumor’s blood supply, starving it out of existence.
Our Board Certified Radiologists will make sure your child receives the smallest amount of radiation throughout his or her diagnosis and treatment. Only the indicated area is imaged and multiple scans are avoided whenever possible.
