Our Team

The goal of NYU radiology is to provide quality, safe, patient-centered care to the communities we serve. With over 100 American Board of Radiology certified clinicians, 70 physicians in training, and 450 support staff made up of technologists, nurses, physician assistants, and administrative assistants, our team works together to meet this goal on a daily basis throughout the New York area. 

Here are our team members:

Radiologists

RadiologistOur radiologists provide referring physicians and their patients with the highest level of diagnostic interpretation and work closely with them to assure the best possible outcome. Our department includes more subspecialists than any other local facility – bringing unrivaled knowledge to each diagnosis. No faculty in the local area has written more textbooks and scientific papers nor has lectured more extensively, both locally and internationally, than members of the NYU faculty. NYU teaches more radiologists from around the globe than any other medical institution in the New York area. More funded radiology research is conducted at NYU than at any other New York institution.

Technologists

X-Ray Technologists

Our radiologic technologists are courteous, caring, and professional. Each comes from either a four year college or a two year hospital program. ALL are required to pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national registry examination and be licensed by the New York State Department of Health. They continue to educate themselves through the mandatory ARRT continuing education requirements, as well as the continued feedback received from the radiologists with whom they interact daily.

 

 

CT Techs

CT Technologists

Our CAT scan technologists must also pass a specialty exam in Computerized Axial Tomography, which measures competency in a variety of areas such as cross-sectional anatomy, imaging procedures/protocols, pathology, physics, and patient care.

 

 

 

 

MR Tech

MRI Technologists

Our MRI specialists possess a New York State Department of Health Radiologic Technologist license and a Bachelors Degree. They utilize their technical expertise with the knowledge that a simple smile and good bedside manners can make a big difference for patients confronted with imposing technology. Their expertise in the use of MRI breeds patient confidence and reduces anxiety. NYU MRI is at the cutting edge of technology and our staff thrives in this stimulating environment. Our MRI specialists have contributed to published numerous papers and have made presentations at many conferences. They work closely with the radiologists in the implementation of clinical and research protocols and imaging sequences.

 

UltraSound Techs

This section performs over 14,000 exams annually on state-of-the-art 3D and 4D ultrasound units. Our technologists are extremely sensitive to the personal comfort of our patients, before, during, and after their exam. Each are required to be registered with the American Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), an independent, nonprofit organization that administers examinations and awards credentials in the areas of diagnostic medical sonography, diagnostic cardiac sonography, vascular interpretation, and vascular technology. The ARDMS is the globally recognized standard of excellence in sonography. They are also required to complete 30 continuing medical education credits every three years.

No matter what the area of specialty, all of our radiologic technologists are committed to bringing you the highest level of imaging, patient care, and professionalism. Their pride in their abilities and knowledge is surpassed only by our pride in their commitment to the entire patient experience.

Physician Assistants

Our team of Physician Assistants (PAs) consists of flexible and dynamic individuals who work in CAT Scan, MRI, X-ray, and Interventional Radiology. The PA is an advanced practice clinician, who is capable of providing care similar to a physician, only under their supervision. In many outpatient settings, you may meet with the PA, who is in constant collaboration with physicians. The PA may obtain a medical history, perform exams and procedures, provide treatment, and administer medications accordingly. Patient interaction with their PA assures that crucial medical information related to their test will be documented and that patient safety is of paramount importance to our delivery of care.

Nurses

NursesOur nurses are all Registered Nurses with highly specialized training and education. They are here to facilitate your experience at NYU by answering your questions and using a gentle approach to your healthcare needs. Working in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team, our nursing staff provides individual assessments, which include counseling, education, and the management needed for each patient.
