What do Pediatric Radiologists do?
Pediatric radiologists are experts in selecting the best imaging techniques to diagnose medical and surgical problems. Examples of imaging techniques include x-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear medicine. Pediatric radiologists make sure that testing is performed properly and safely. They also interpret the results of the test and make an appropriate diagnosis.
Pediatric radiologists work as part of a diagnostic team along with your pediatrician or pediatric specialist to provide the best possible care for your child.
We recognize the importance of creating a safe and comfortable environment for children and their families. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment has special pediatric features, and includes a full range of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology services that are calibrated for safe use on infants, children, and adolescents. These precautions we take ensure your child is exposed to the lowest possible dose of radiation necessary to complete a diagnosis or procedure.
