The Pediatric Radiology section of Diagnostic Radiology offers a full range of body imaging services for newborns, infants, children, and teenagers. Each of our physicians has completed subspecialty fellowship training in pediatric radiology and is certified by the American Board of Radiology in both diagnostic radiology and pediatric radiology. In addition, our radiologists are active members of the Society for Pediatric Radiology, are advocates of its Image Gently campaign, and have been leaders in the field of radiation dose reduction. Together with our experienced staff, we make each child's visit as safe and as pleasant as possible while providing state-of-the-art diagnostic images and expert interpretations.
We tailor our imaging to the needs of each child:
- Our equipment and techniques are continually updated and have been customized for children of different ages.
- We keep radiation dose as low as possible.
- We use child-friendly décor, fun diversions, and soothing music to distract attention away from imaging procedures
- For procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, we work with an experienced team of pediatric sedation nurses and pediatric anesthesiologists.
- We are committed to providing the best possible experience and an accurate diagnosis for your child.
Our section is located on the 7th floor of Doernbecher Children's Hospital, where we collaborate closely with all Pediatric medical and surgical teams.
