Pediatric Radiology Services

Scans with Low Radiation, Specially Configured for Children

We know children aren’t just small adults. Injuries and diseases do not affect a child’s growing body the same as an adult. State-of-the-art equipment and precise imaging protocols, specially configured for children, are needed to accurately diagnose medical problems and minimize radiation exposure

Our Services

Children’s is a national leader in pediatric radiology, performing more than 230,000 procedures a year. We offer a complete range of services for the evaluation of pediatric disease including: 


Our Radiology department has been named the only pediatric Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence (DICOE) program in the country by the American College of Radiology. We are the only facility in the southeast to receive this designation.

The American College of Radiology has stringent requirements for its DICOE designation. Likewise, Children's has long strived to go above and beyond standard practice to keep kids safe and families happy. 

As the only DICOE-recognized pediatric facility in the country, Children's is setting the bar for other facilities in terms of imaging quality and safety.  


    Children's Healthcare at Town CenterTo better provide imaging services to our patients in Cobb County, we have a new outpatient radiology center at Children's at Town Center in Kennesaw. 

    In addition to our current X-ray and lab services available at this location, our pediatric providers will offer more advanced imaging, including MRI, CT, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and sedation services.
