North Shore-LIJ Completes Last Phase of $50M Upgrade of its Diagnostic Imaging Systems, $12M for GE Low-Dose CT Scanners to Reduce Patients’ Radiation Exposure
Date:1/14/2014

Shore-LIJ. “This initiative is a significant investment in our commitment to move beyond treating illness but also to protect public health.”

The Joint Commission, the nation’s top hospital and healthcare accrediting organization, issued a sentinel alert about the long-term radiation risks of diagnostic imaging in 2011. Jason Naidich, MD, chairman of radiology at North Shore-LIJ, said the health system was already planning its major project to upgrade its CTs and radiology equipment when the report made national news.

“North Shore-LIJ has a comprehensive radiology safety program across its hospitals and outpatient imaging facilities,” Dr. Naidich said. “Our radiology physicians, technologists, and physicists are specifically trained in radiation safety and are committed to limiting patients’ exposure to the lowest dose necessary to make the proper diagnosis.

“We offer low-dose CT imaging in every community the health system serves and all of our emergency departments are equipped with the most-up-to-date, low-dose CT scanners,” Dr. Naidich said. “This is important for everyone, but especially for children and young adults who may be more susceptible to harm from radiation exposure over time.”

“When used appropriately, CT is a safe tool that can save lives. At North Shore – LIJ, our patients can be confident that we are using this innovative technology to make their imaging procedures even safer.”
