Imaging

Dr. Weiss recommends imaging facilities that perform high-quality studies and employ radiologists specializing in musculoskeletal medicine – and where he can review the images himself.  In regards to advanced imaging, I remind all patients that research indicates that even young, completely asymptomatic people often have numerous abnormalities on their MRI scans (tears, disc herniations, degenerative changes, etc.). 

Viewing your imaging studies (X-ray, CT, MRI)

We are unable to supply you with the actual images of your study.  Please contact the imaging facility directly.  Note that images cannot be sent via email.

Advanced imaging, such as CT, MRI, or diagnostic ultrasound, are performed at NYU Langone Health facilities throughout Manhattan and the New York metropolitan area.  Please check with our office before scheduling, as different locations have different quality scanners.  Also, certain NYU Langone Health imaging facilities bill as a “hospital” service, which means a significantly higher out-of-pocket cost for you.

MRI scans are often performed at Park West Radiology, especially for Workers’ Compensation cases:
