Research Facilities

NYU Langone Medical Center

The New York University Hospitals Center consists of several closely related clinical service organizations, including the Tisch Hospital, the NYU Downtown Hospital, and the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. Several new additions to the NYULMC campus are currently underway, including a new hospital pavilion and a new basic science tower. The Medical Center’s primary clinical service area, which includes lower Manhattan and the adjacent areas of the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, has a projected population base of nearly 2.5 million. The School of Medicine also has academic and clinical responsibility for New York City’s Bellevue Hospital which is immediately adjacent to the School. The Bellevue Hospital serves the indigent, largely minority population of New York. The School also has a close relationship with the Manhattan Veterans Administration Hospital, immediately adjacent to Bellevue.

The Department of Radiology

The Department of Radiology employs approximately 600 staff, including more than 100 attending radiologists, numerous residents and fellows, CBI researchers as described above, and others. Transforming the field of Radiology to improve the lives of people is our departmental mission, and translational research represents one of our key strategic priorities. In service of this priority, the department has invested in as many as ten 50/50 clinical research positions, in project- and investigator-focused mentorship programs, and in dedicated core facilities devoted to RF engineering, MR physics and pulse programming, and image processing. These core facilities serve all department members and departmental research projects. Combining clinical excellence with basic and translational research, the Departmental of Radiology operates a full complement of diagnostic imaging modalities, including more than 20 MR scanners at various sites, as well as state-of-the-art CT scanners, PET-CT machines, etc.

Collaborating Clinical Departments

Ten clinical departments and/or institutes at NYULMC have served as founding partners in our collaborative MR-PET research program in particular and in CAI²R in general. In addition to Radiology, these include Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, Oncology, Urology, Neurosurgery, Surgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Medicine. Ongoing CAI²R research activities related to oncology and musculoskeletal disease also take place at the Cancer Institute (1 Trio 3T MR scanner and 2 PET-CT scanners) and the Center for Musculoskeletal Care (1 Aera 1.5T scanner and 1 Skyra 3T scanner).

NYU Tisch Hospital

Tisch Hospital, with 705-beds, is NYU Langone Medical Center’s flagship hospital, drawing patients from the community and around the world. Opened in 1963 as University Hospital, it was renamed Tisch Hospital in 1989 in recognition of two prominent and generous benefactors -- Laurence A. and Preston Robert Tisch.

Today Tisch Hospital provides a continuity of care for its patients and boasts 66 operating rooms, a 32-bed state-of-the art critical care unit, the Lui Wan Women’s Pavillion, an electrophysiology suite for the innovative care of cardiac arrhythmias, dedicated pediatric areas and a maternity and neo-natal intensive care unit for its tiniest patients.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, all MRI systems located in the basement of Tisch Hospital were damaged beyond repair. Two mobile MRI systems (Siemens MAGNETOM Avanto 1.5T) have been installed next to the CBI building to serve as temporary outpatient imaging facility until a new location for replacement MRI systems has been prepared. A mobile MRI unit was also installed at Tisch hospital to provide inpatient imaging services.
