Pediatric imaging studies we offer
Our skilled team uses the latest advances in imaging technology to diagnose and manage numerous conditions, injuries and diseases. Our special focus on pediatric imaging allows us to meet the needs of even our youngest patients. We have extensive experience using X-rays as well as sophisticated imaging techniques. We specialize in:
Computed tomography (CT): Using a combination of X-rays and a computer, a CT scan produces images of tissues throughout your body.
Fluoroscopy: This technology uses X-rays and a video screen to create a moving X-ray, which looks like a movie of structures inside your body.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): This type of scan uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to create detailed images of bones, organs and soft tissues.
Ultrasound: Also called sonography, ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of your body’s tissues.
Our team includes experienced pediatric radiologists and technologists. Your child receives personalized care from imaging experts who are specially trained to address the unique needs of babies, children and adolescents.
