Mercy Hospital'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 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 Department of Radiology is a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology and its radiologists are board certified by the American Board of Radiology. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other serious and chronic illnesses. The center provides a single site for patients to receive multiple services such as 3D digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and biopsies using ultrasound, stereotactic and MRI guidance for greater accuracy in diagnosing breast cancer, as well as bone densitometry for the diagnosis of osteoporosis. Patient navigation is available to assist individuals with follow-up care and overall support.
Additionally, Mercy is currently the only hospital on Long Island to offer LumaGem® Molecular Breast Imaging — a supplementary screening modality for women with dense breast, significantly increasing early detection in women. Unlike prior nuclear breast imaging technologies, LumaGem®’s newly configured detectors assist in the discovery of small breast cancers with minimal radiation exposure.
