Why does it matter?

Getting an unexpected diagnosis from your doctor can be frightening, but when it is for your child, it’s earth shattering. The burden of putting your child through tests and procedures is a little easier to bear when you know the team is highly sensitive to the needs of your child.

OHSU Diagnostic Imaging provides the highest level of care and are very effective with children. Our sub-specialized Pediatric Radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Radiology and Pediatric Radiology. We have taken the 'Image Gently Pledge' and track the amount of radiation your child receives. All Pediatric Imaging Scans are specially protocoled for our pediatric patients, because we know that what is appropriate for a man at 180lbs is not appropriate for a 40lb child.

Image Gently Campaign

We took the image gently pledge. Learn what that means for your child.

We want a positive visit with our team of technologists, nurses, and radiologists every time. Our rooms are painted in fun themes just for kids to help them feel more relaxed and entertained.  We've set up our new 3T MRI scanner with an ambient light system and play movies to substantially decrease the need for sedation.

When sedation is needed, our department has a unique cooperative effort with the Department of Anesthesiology, whose members perform and monitor sedation safely and effectively. OHSU’s Pediatric Sedation services is located immediately next to our MRI suite on the 7th floor of Doernbecher. Our schedulers are very willing to answer any questions you may have and schedule your child’s scan at a time that would be convenient. Let our team of OHSU Pediatric Radiologists put your mind at ease! We have you covered!
