The Division of Emergency Radiology is a vital component of the emergency services offered at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, a 911 receiving hospital, level I trauma center, psychiatric emergency center, and burn center for the city of New York.
In addition to their dedicated pediatric and psychiatric services, the emergency department cares for over 55,000 patients per year. Our emergency center is also the officially designated Emergency Department for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, the Hospital for Special Surgery, Gracie Square Psychiatric Hospital and other neighborhood specialty care centers.
The Division of Emergency radiology is proud to provide the imaging services and expertise to this busy emergency center. With state of the art equipment including conventional and digital radiography, a 16 slice multislice CT scanner, 1.5 and 3.0T MRI units, and dedicated sonographic equipment, we are able to perform and interpret the wide range of imaging studies necessary for such a practice. Our dedicated emergency room radiologists work closely with the sub specialist radiologists in all disciplines in order to provide the best care possible for our patients.
