New York's Premiere Location for
Diagnostic Imaging & Radiation Oncology
Welcome to Rosetta, the clear choice for high quality diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology services on the upper east side of Manhattan. Since its inception in the 1960's, Rosetta Radiology has set the standard in delivering the highest quality diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology with warmth and compassion. We remain the exceptional choice for high quality diagnostic radiology, advanced imaging, women's imaging and radiation oncology in Manhattan.
Since the radiologist interprets the imaging study while the patient is in the office, the referring health care provider can be contacted with STAT results and where appropriate additional complementary study can be added. We are committed to the highest standard of quality and personalized patient care. Through services such as this, we prove our commitment to the highest standard of quality and personalized patient care.
In the 1960's, Norman Simon, MD and Sidney Silverstone, MD, pioneers in radiation oncology, opened a practice for radiation therapy on Fifth Avenue, called Docs at 945 Fifth Avenue. This was the first freestanding cobalt therapy unit in New York City. Shortly afterwards, the practice added diagnostic facilities. Since that time, the practice grew to represent one of the only private practice groups in New York to offer a full range of diagnostic modalities, as well as the most modern treatment using image-guided therapy by a linear accelerator.
We have since taken the name Rosetta to represent our special combination of radiation oncology, scanning (ultrasound, mammography, CT, MRI, bone densitometry), emission tomography (PET), and tissue acquisition (biopsies).
In the summer of 2008, we moved all of our services from 945 Fifth Avenue to 1421 Third Avenue at 80TH Street. We now occupy 4 floors of our medical building, next door to Eli's Foods. While we have expanded our square footage and added new diagnostic tests to our existing practice, we maintain our philosophy of providing personal care in this age of high tech imaging.
For the past 45 years, Rosetta has been synonymous with high quality imaging and interpretations, as well as radiation therapy. Our emphasis on personalized care has distinguished us from many other full service radiology practices in New York City and continues to do so.
