Message from Leadership

Welcome to Stony Brook Medicine Imaging Services.

As Suffolk County’s only academic medical center, we support local physicians and community hospitals through our expertise and specialized services. Our outpatient imaging centers ensure that everyone in the community has access to sophisticated diagnostic tools and expert radiologists.

The Patient Is At The Center

The synthesis of clinical care, research and education is the foundation of our academic medical center. This type of imaging is only available at the leading edge of academic health science centers, like Stony Brook.

Imaging is integral to strengthening that foundation and to helping Stony Brook Medicine grow. Our goal is to bring innovations in healthcare along with pioneering technology and research to the community, so we can make a difference in the lives of our patients.

State of the Art Technology and Facilities

Our $6.3 million MRI Suite at Stony Brook University Hospital houses a Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3T MRI scanner and two Siemens Magnetom Aera 1.5T scanners. Both designs are ideal for who have claustrophobia, or may be too large for other closed machines.

Imaging is Critical for the Right Diagnosis

To better diagnose potential heart attacks, Stony Brooks’ Emergency Room has a 320-slice CT scanner, which allows us to image stroke patients quickly and rapidly. We are currently in the process of installing a Dual-Energy CT scanner which will expand CT power in screening, detection and diagnosis for a wide spectrum of diseases.

We were the first on Long Island to offer a simultaneous PET/MRI scanner. The technology is used for diagnosing numerous conditions, including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. The exceptional image quality of the PET/MRI aides in treatment planning. The combination of structural-functional information that PET/MRI provides is driving our research into the innermost workings of the human body.

We recently opened and expanded our imaging center within the new Hospital Pavilion, adjacent to the Medical and Research Translation (MART) building.

The Radiology Department has both a Diagnostic Radiology residency program, a musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship, and is in the process of obtaining approval for a Neuroradiology Fellowship program.

It’s an exciting time to be at Stony Brook, and we look forward to shaping the future of medicine with you.
