The SBH Department of Radiology has increased its footprint and expanded its hours to meet the demands of our patients. In addition, the department continues to investigate the benefits of the most advanced technologies.
The state-of-the-art department includes diagnostic radiologic, fluoroscopic equipment; mammography; multislice catscan; MRI; real-time ultrasonography; nuclear medicine; stereotactic and ultrasound localized breast biopsy; PET-CT; and bone densitometry equipment; as well as complete body interventional services with CT, fluoroscopic and ultrasound-guided procedures.
We also offer radiation oncology through the Infusion Center. This facility is equipped with a Varian dual energy linear accelerator and AcQsim CT simulation technology. The facility has IMRT capability with high dose rate brachytherapy. This complements our long history of cancer care with specialists in medical oncology and surgery. Pathology and the entire radiology team contribute to a comprehensive and individualized approach to cancer care with the St. Barnabas Cancer Center.
The Radiology Department is accredited by the American College of Radiology in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, MRI, ultrasonography, CT and nuclear medicine.
