Imaging and Radiology

Imaging and Radiology

Our inpatient and outpatient facilities offer state-of-the-art imaging services for children. You will find prompt scheduling, a wide range of appointment times to accommodate busy schedules and free valet parking.

A team of pediatric specialists include pediatric radiologists, radiology technologists, pediatric nurses, pediatric anesthesiologists and a child life specialist. We ensure your child’s care is delivered in a way that is easy to understand, while reducing their anxiety. We follow the guiding principle of ALARA for radiation safety. ALARA stands for “as low as reasonably achievable”.

Our specialists use their medical expertise to decide which imaging technology is best for your child.

  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Flouroscopy
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Pediatric radiologists make sure tests are performed safely and correctly, and results are interpreted to make the most accurate diagnosis.

Reducing pain and anxiety

Items such as virtual reality goggles or radiation-safe headphones may be available to help your child escape the hospital environment and go on an exciting journey. These offer a calming distraction from potentially painful or uncomfortable procedures, help relieve fear and create a more positive experience.

Procedural sedation

Some tests or procedures may require a child to remain still for an extended period of time to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Sedation may help your child relax, for either quick tests or extensive procedures.
