Mercy Medical Center's Department of Radiology and Imaging provides the highest level of care and service in the area of diagnostic imaging, therapeutic, and consultative services to doctors, inpatients and outpatients. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other serious and chronic illnesses.
Mercy's newly-renovated Bishop John R. McGann Radiology and Imaging Center features the latest technology and enhanced amenities, including a spacious reception area designed to provide patients with a bright, calm environment, along with a new private waiting area of Women's Imaging patients.
The Center provides a single site for women to receive multiple services such as new digital mammography, ultrasound and stereotactic biopsies for greater accuracy in diagnosing breast cancer; and bone densitometry for the diagnosis of osteoporosis.
Additionally, Mercy is currently the only hospital on Long Island to offer VolparaDensity™ and the only in NY to offer LumaGem® Molecular Breast Imaging — a supplementary screening modality for women with dense breast, significantly increasing early detection in women (MBI finds 400% more invasive cancers than a digital mammo alone.) Unlike prior nuclear breast imaging technologies, LumaGem®’s newly configured detectors assist in the discovery of small breast cancers with minimal radiation exposure.
