New Technology for MS Research and Clinical Care

Stony Brook Medicine, where MRI technology was first developed, is among the first sites in the United States to offer simultaneous PET/MRI technology for clinical use. Located in the Lisa and Robert Lourie Imaging Suite, the new technology will benefit patients by providing exceptional image quality and diagnostic capabilities, and greater efficiency by having two significant imaging procedures performed at the same time with low-dose radiation. Long Island’s only simultaneous PET/MRI will be used for imaging and diagnosis of multiple sclerosis as well as cancer, neurodegenerative disease and psychiatric disorders.
