Radiology

Diagnostic Procedures

Smaller body parts are more difficult to distinguish than adults and require state-of-the-art technology. Radiologists use a variety of diagnostic medical imaging equipment for children. The images of internal organs and bones help radiologists and other medical staff understand and treat diseases and injuries. Learn more about imaging and radiation safety from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

RadiologyProcedures
CT Scan A child CT scan uses advanced X-ray technology to take cross-sectional images, sometimes called "slices," of your child’s body. DEXA Scan

DEXA is a special pediatric bone scan, an x-ray procedure that determines the strength of bones.

Fluoroscopy Fluoroscopy procedures use X-rays and make it possible to see your child's internal organs in motion.  Interventional Radiology Interventional radiologists specialize in minimally invasive procedures and targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

While our pediatric MRI uses a large magnet, radio waves and computers to take pictures, patients watch a movie or listen to music. It helps them relax while the MRI helps us treat and care.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine imaging for children is unique because it provides doctors with information about both structure and function of body parts.

PET/CT

Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT) imaging offers physicians a unique view of the body's organs and tissue because it records function by showing pictures at the cellular level.

Radiology Sedation and Anesthesia Services

Our pediatric radiology team offers sedation and anesthesia to help make your child as comfortable as possible during a procedure.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound or sonography is a technique that uses sound waves to study hard-to-reach areas of the body.

X-ray X-rays are made by using low levels of radiation to produce images of bones, organs, and other internal structures for diagnostic purposes.
