What Sets Us Apart
It is important to understand that children are not just little adults. They require differences in the way images are obtained and interpreted. Our state-of-the-art equipment, experienced staff, and child-friendly facilities are dedicated solely to the imaging care of children and adolescents.
Specialized Care:Pediatric images look different than adult images, and it is essential to have someone reading and performing these procedures that has extensive pediatric experience and understands normal development, and the scope of pediatric disease. Your child's exam will be performed by a pediatric trained technologist who has experience working with babies, children, and teens. The images are then reviewed by a board certified pediatric radiologist. All of our radiologists have participated in well recognized and certified residency and fellowship programs and hold Certificates of Added Qualifications in areas such as Pediatric Radiology, Neuroradiology, and Interventional Radiology.
Advanced Technology:Our equipment and protocols are customized for pediatric imaging. For exams that use radiation, we utilize imaging techniques and standards outlined by the Image Gently program to ensure the lowest possible radiation exposure during procedures.
Environment:We understand that it can be difficult for kids to feel comfortable in a hospital or doctor's office. That is why we go to great lengths to create a kid-friendly environment. We have Certified Child Life Specialists who use developmentally appropriate education to help children feel more comfortable and better cope during their exam. Additionally, we offer various options for distraction therapies, such as video goggles or music.
Sedation Services:If needed, we provide sedation or anesthesia by a dedicated team to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient.
