Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Atlantic Health System Neuroscience's neuroradiology departments at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center diagnose diseases of the brain, head, neck and spine, including:

  • Conditions caused by trauma
  • Congenital abnormalities
  • Diseases of the blood vessels
  • Stroke
  • Tumors

Diagnostic Services at Overlook and Morristown Medical Centers:

– Imaging technique used to produce images of the blood vessels and other key areas of the body, including the brain
Biplane neuroangiography
Where traditional brain x-rays require multiple dye injections and sets of photos, the biplane creates a three dimensional image of the brain with each dye injection, greatly simplifying the task of defining abnormalities and planning treatment.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including angiography (MRA)
MRA uses noninvasive MRI to detect problems of the arteries and veins, such as an aneurysm, blockage of a blood vessel (by fatty deposits or a blood clot), or a torn inner lining of a blood vessel (dissection).
Positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT)
– A scanning device that combines the data from two scans into one comprehensive image, allowing physicians to quickly and more accurately identify neurological and brain disorders
Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
– Helps determine where a seizure originates in the brain by measuring blood flow in different areas.
An X-ray is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

Overlook Medical Center offers the following additional diagnostic services:

Computed axial tomography (CAT) or CT scan, including:

320-slice Aquilion One CT scan
– The most advanced CT scanner available, it scans the entire brain in seconds with the lowest radiation dose of any CT scanner to produce advanced CT angiography and perfusion studies rapidly, which speeds diagnosis and treatment for patients.
4D CT angiography with perfusion
– Dynamic imaging, using contrast media, to allow radiologists to view continuous 4D (similar to video) real-time images of the heart and brain.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI)
– enables neurosurgeons to plan surgical procedures that minimize the risk of damage to critical brain function by determining the normal functions controlled by the targeted brain area
MRI with diffusion tensor and perfusion imaging
– measures brain blood flow and helps in the diagnosis of a variety of low-grade tumors that do not appear on conventional MRIs
PET/CT with Cortex-ID™
– Helps detect Alzheimer’s disease; this computer program enables our clinicians to compare a patient’s brain PET/CT scan to a database of age-matched normal subjects to check for abnormalities.

Morristown Medical also offers 64-slice CT scans for diagnosing patients with neuro trauma.
