On Aug. 1, Lenox Hill Radiology, a contracted physician group of RadNet, Inc. opened its diagnostic imaging facility at 443 Sunrise Highway, where a prior radiology operated for several years.
Lenox Hill offers a variety of services, including MRI, PET/CT, Ultrasound, 3-D mammography and walk-in X-ray. Additionally, the new Lenox Hill Radiology facility conducts critical prostate and breast cancer screenings, which can be vital in early detection of these diseases and improved treatment outcomes.
" Lenox Hill Radiology’s clinical expertise and reputation is unsurpassed in the marketplace," said Sage Cummings, vice president of sales for RadNet. "We're very proud of the clinical capabilities and outstanding service we provide to our referring physician communities and patients."
Lenox Hill has 82 convenient locations in New York. Lenox Hill also opened locations in areas that previously had little access to imaging, including Ridgewood, Queens, and Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
Lenox Hill utilizes a proprietary software and information technology infrastructure, which keeps patients' medical records on a common platform regardless of which location a patient visits This platform offers access to images and clinical reports to patients and their referring physicians.
Lenox Hill has 69 magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, systems in the New York area, deploying state of the art imaging technology. Additionally, Lenox Hill deploys leading-edge 3-D mammography, offering women the most advanced technology for their breast screening exams.
The Lenox Hill facilities use RadNet’s Deep Health artificial intelligence solutions for mammography, for which it received approval from the Food and Drug Administration earlier this year. The technology identifies suspicious screening exams that may need prioritized attention, enabling radiologists to optimize their workflow and accuracy.
"We're not a hospital and not hospital-owned," he said. "Hospital-based radiology services are typically two to three times more expensive to consumers and their insurance companies. I am proud that we are able to offer unparallel service, leading technology and excellent prices to the patients of the greater New York metropolitan area. "
