On November 2nd RAI began collecting donations of food, household, personal care adn baby items as our way to help all those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The response from our community and local physician offices was overwhelming! We can not thank everyone enough! All donations went to the Manahawkin Shelter for First Responders and Pets.
We are not done yet! Donations can be brought to either our Hamilton or Lawrenceville offices. There are still many families displaced from their homes or living without electricity. They are in need of: hats, gloves, coats, clothes, shoes, pet food, baby supplies and blankets. A full list can be found below or on our Facebook page. RAI is working with the group Donations for Sandy to deliver all items to those in need.
"Now we've got a big task ahead of us that we have to do together. This is the kind of thing New Jerseyans are built for." - NJ Governor Chris Christie
Items that are needed include: Blankets, coats, hats, scarves, gloves, baby items, pet food and supplies, canned soups, non-perishable food, personal care items, medical supplies (latex gloves, alcohol, bandages)

Ultrasound guided breast biopsy and cyst aspiration is now available at our Lawrenceville office. Patients with concerning cystic or solid breast masses that can be visualized on ultrasound no longer need to leave Lawrenceville for their work up. The biopsy can usually be performed within a week. Our experienced radiologists, Dr. Eric Bosworth and Dr. Lynne Taus, will be providing this important service. In conjunction with our "Results while you wait" program RAI is continually striving to meet the radiology needs of our patients and referring physicians in the most convenient way possible.
RAI is proud to announce the opening of The Vein Center at Lawrenceville. In the past, treating varicose veins required invasive surgery that was followed by a long recovery period. Now, with endovenous laser therapy, we are able to get rid of unsightly varicose veins with a simple procedure performed right in a doctor’s office.The patient is awake during the procedure and can walk out of the office immediately afterward.
The procedure is performed by an experienced interventional radiologist who uses laser energy to treat the varicose veins. The best part is that endovenous laser therapy causes only minimal discomfort, which means the patient can return to normal activities the same day.
We at The Vein Center at Lawrenceville are happy to announce that we now offer this procedure, along with Sclerotherapy, Phlebectomy and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. Most cases are covered by medical insurance. If you or someone you know is considering varicose vein treatment, contact Joan Veltri, Vein Coordinator at (800) 251-RAIVEIN

ABC News is reporting that the longest-running study of breast cancer screening PROVES that regular mammograms save lives - and more lives than previously thought.They prevent cancer deaths, and the number of lives saved increases over time.
The researchers found that seven years of mammograms made for 30 percent fewer breast cancer deaths years down the road, when compared with women who didn't receive mammograms.
That translates to 15 to 20 thousand lives a year.
Past studies only looked 7 to 10 years down the road, so the benefit didn't seem as large.
And that's what the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force used when it recommended in 2009 that routine mammograms not start till age 50, and that they end at 75. It cited the large number of mammograms needed to save a life, and a higher risk of false positives that might lead to unneeded biopsies and other tests.
The new study of 130,000 Swedish women says that it only takes 414 to 519 screenings to save on life.
Some cancer experts say the benefits are probably even bigger now, because mammogram technology has improved so much since the study started.
The study in Sweden didn't specifically address the controversy over screenings for women between 40 and 49 years of age, because it didn't break down the risk according to age.
Despite the federal recommendations, the American Cancer Society continued calling for mammograms to start at 40.
