When it comes to diagnostic imaging, children aren't just small adults. They need extra safeguards and care. Together, our doctors, nurses, and technologists complete about 125,000 imaging exams on children each year. Our team has the experience and training to keep your child safe while providing accurate medical images. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of families, and referring physicians in imaging and punctual interpretation.
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. Our medical director is a founding member of the Image Gently steering committee. Children's Hospital also supports and practices the radiation safety principle of ALARA. ALARA is an acronym for As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
Services provided by Diagnostic Imaging, often-called radiology or X-ray, include radiographs, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT (computed tomography or CAT scans), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and nuclear medicine. Learn more about the types of diagnostic imaging exams we offer.
