When it comes to diagnostic imaging, children's needs differ from adults’. They need extra safeguards and care. Our team has the experience and training to keep your child safe while providing accurate medical images. Our goal is to exceed families’ and referring physicians’ expectations with our imaging and interpretation.
The complete Diagnostic Imaging team includes physicians and management staff who are here to guide your child and family through the imaging process.
We support the Image Gently Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, dedicated to raising awareness of lower radiation doses in the imaging of children. Children's Hospital also supports and practices the radiation safety principle of ALARA, an acronym for “as low as reasonably achievable.”
Our pediatric radiologists, nurses and technologists perform and interpret about 125,000 pediatric imaging exams each year.
The American College of Radiology (ACR) is an organization that sets standards of healthcare imaging excellence. Certification from the ACR is the gold standard for any imaging department. Children's Hospital is certified in every available area of CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound.
Our doctors are dedicated and specially trained to provide diagnostic imaging to infants, children and adolescents. With advanced training, our pediatric radiologists are capable of providing greater accuracy in reading and interpreting images.
We use the latest technology to offer clear, more detailed images to your doctor as quickly as possible.
Your child’s safety is one of our top priorities. We minimize your child's exposure to radiation by following the Image Gently program and ALARA principle for radiation safety.
We offer a full range of tests, treatments, and services including:
