Diagnostic Imaging (Radiology)

The Department of Diagnostic Imaging is a full service diagnostic service located on the 1st floor of East Orange General Hospital. It operates 24 hours a day and provides services and care to patient of all ages. The average caseload is approximately 45,000 procedures per year.

We are proud of the diagnostic imaging technology at East Orange General Hospital. Our equipment is leading edge and our technicians are among the most experienced in the area.

But no matter how good our equipment and staff are, the real difference lies in the talents of the radiology physicians who read and interpret the results. That’s exactly why we are proud to have contracted with the Radiology Department at University Hospital for reading and interpretation of all diagnostic imaging procedures. University Hospital’s 24 radiologists, many of whom are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School,  allow us to analyze results of virtually any imaging procedure, including:

  • Body Imaging
  • Mammography
  • Interventional Radiology
  • Musculoskeletal Imaging
  • Neuroradiology
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Pediatric Radiology
  • Thoracic Radiology

This affiliation with Rutgers University Hospital gives our patients access to both the technology and the physician skill needed for fast, accurate results, and the peace of mind that their care is guided by the best diagnostic imaging combination in our area.

Just Think What You Could Save.

When detected early, breast cancer is a very treatable disease. So doesn’t it make sense to schedule your next mammogram at a place that has the latest in mammography technology? East Orange Hospital is proud to announced our new Selena 3-D mammography machine from Hologic, a global healthcare diagnostic company. The Selena technology offers much earlier detection of a breast mass, many of which have in the past been deemed suspicions but not definitive. That means faster intervention and greatly improved odds for recovery. The 3-D capability for breast exams now means patients at our Women’s Health Center have immediate access to the latest in mammography as well as to ultrasound exams and bone density testing.
