Diagnostic Imaging: Leading the Way in Expert Radiologic Diagnosis and Intervention
Radiological Associates of Long Island, PC (RALI) specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury using specialized medical imaging such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), fusion imaging, ultrasound and bone density. RALI is an FDA and ACR-accredited mammography center.
The board-certified radiologists comprising RALI’s robust group of subspecialists are expert diagnosticians you can depend on for timely top-quality reads and diagnoses.
We know there are many choices in diagnostic radiology, and we truly appreciate your trust.
RALI is an affiliate of South Nassau Communities Hospital. We will work diligently to reward that trust with the highest-quality radiologic service coupled with the personal attention and accuracy you and your patients deserve.
We perform a full range of imaging methods, including:
- Diagnostic radiography
- Multislice computed tomography (CT)
- High-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- 3D and 4D Ultrasound for obstetric and gynecologic imaging
- Bone density (DEXA) scans
A computerized tomography, or CT scan, combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and then uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (referred to as slices) of your body’s blood vessels, soft tissues and bones. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do.
A CT scan has many uses, but it is particularly well-suited to quickly examine or diagnose patients who may have internal injuries or internal bleeding, such as from car accidents or other trauma. It may be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and can be used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiologic treatments.
Your doctor may recommend a CT scan to diagnose muscle and bone disorders, such as fractures or lesions (tumors); pinpoint clotting or infection; detect diseases and conditions such as cancer, heart disease, lung nodules, liver masses and other conditions; monitor the effectiveness of treatments you may be receiving, such as for cancer. Our CT scanners offer low-dose, high-resolution imaging, ensuring safety as well as excellent diagnostics.
Preparing for a CT Scan
CT scan times vary from 15 to 30 minutes. If your CT is being performed with contrast, you may not have anything to eat, drink or chew for three hours before your exam. If you are having a CT scan with contrast, you will receive an injection before being scanned. Please let us know if you are diabetic or allergic to shellfish or iodine, as this may affect your exam. If you are having a CT scan of your abdomen and/or pelvis, you must pick up a drink in our office at least one day before your exam. If you are having a CT scan without contrast, there is NO preparation for the exam.
All images and reports are immediately available to your South Nassau Communities Hospital clinicians from their offices 24 hours a day, via secure connection.
