The new Outpatient Imaging Center at Stony Brook University Hospital provides services in a state-of-the-art 65,000 square-foot facility located on the Medical Center campus. The Center provides convenience and comfort, with easy access and spacious, bright treatment areas. The new location is the ideal setting for patients, families, and Stony Brook's healthcare professionals to partner in the management and treatment of a variety of medical conditions. The facility also houses Stony Brook University Cancer Center's outpatient services, including the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center and the Pain Management Center.
Stony Brook is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic tools available to provide the highest quality care and improved outcomes to its patients. The new Imaging Center offers a full range of diagnostic services, from conventional x-ray to the sophisticated positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan and a 64-slice CT scanner for cardiac imaging. A picture archiving and communications system (PACS) allows for rapid access to computerized (digital) images at multiple sites for both radiologists and clinicians. High-speed data connections make it possible for images to be transmitted and viewed by physicians off-site, affording the unparalleled ability for the healthcare team to consult. To streamline care, a CD containing study images is provided at the request of the referring physician.
