NEW YORK, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lenox Hill Radiology is first in its field with respect to leveraging cutting-edge technology to provide a full scope of diagnostic radiology services and care to patients, as well as to New York-area physicians, healthcare practitioners, hospitals, universities and researchers.
Lenox Hill was the first imaging center in New York City to attain American College of Radiology PET accreditation. It also was the first to provide physicians with online access to images and reports, the first in the city to offering direct digital X-rays, and the first to install a multi-detector CT scanner.

Lenox Hill utilizes the single-platform MedInformatix RIS solution to manage and perform a full slate of business functions including billing, scheduling, imaging, physician workflow and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) management.
