Cornell Medical Imaging, a new outpatient imaging facility of the Department of Radiology, is equipped with the latest technological advances in breast and body imaging. Services include conventional and digital mammography, stereotactic and ultrasound-guided needle biopsies, gynecologic ultrasound, bone density scans, and the full range of CT scanning. The imaging facility will provide the imaging needs of the Breast Center as well as the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center scheduled to open at the same location next year. Dr. Ruth Rosenblatt, who continues to serve as director of Women's Imaging, will be based at the 61st Street facility.
"We are proud to be able to expand breast imaging services at this time, when economic pressures are causing many practices to reduce or eliminate such services," said Dr. Rosenblatt.
Cornell Medical Imaging is located on the 9th floor at 425 E. 61st St. To refer patients for an appointment, call (212) 821-0600.
