Kid-friendly imaging, kid-friendly care.
Children need many of the same imaging tests as adults. However, that doesn’t mean the tests can or should be done in the same way.
Kids need special care when it comes to imaging scans and radiology procedures. From the size of the equipment to the dosage of radiation, we tailor everything to your child’s unique needs.
Getting the most accurate images to treat your little one.
Your child’s medical treatment will often hinge on the results of an imaging scan. You want to know that we’ll get the most accurate scan possible, but you also want to make sure your child is in the very best hands. Our team has the experience that comes with performing more than 60,000 pediatric imaging scans each year.
We tailor every aspect of our imaging scans and procedures to your child’s needs. We use state-of-the-art equipment that has been specially adapted for kids. Our machines are smaller than the machines used for adults and have features that can help keep your child entertained during a scan.
Our pediatric imaging team is entirely focused on helping kids of all ages stay calm. If your child needs sedation during an exam, we work with pediatric anesthesiologists and critical care physicians to ensure your child’s safety and comfort.
We also have child life specialists on hand who use distraction techniques like videos, storybooks, or toys to make the time go faster.
