For X-rays, MRIs, CT scans and other types of imaging, South Nassau Communities Hospital’s radiology team offers experience and expertise. We care for both adults and children, and our radiologists use a wide range of advanced technology to provide clear, detailed images. As part of your medical team, we use these images in several ways: to diagnose disease and injury, and to guide medical tools such as a catheter during treatments. This is a subspecialty called “interventional” radiology.
