Pediatric Radiology

The Division of Pediatric Radiology specializes in diagnostic imaging procedures for pediatric patients. Board certified pediatric radiologists work closely with other pediatric specialists to provide comprehensive care for children. Our specialists are dedicated to optimizing diagnosis with the latest techniques to reduce radiation dose

Patient Conditions

  • Any condition requiring diagnostic imaging of infants, children and adolescents

Comprehensive Evaluations

  • Plain film studies
  • GI and GU fluoroscopic contrast studies using pediatric radiation dose modifications
  • Comprehensive pediatric ultrasound including cranial and spinal sonography, and high resolution imaging of small parts, soft tissues, and hips and other joints
  • CT tailored to children with low radiation dose protocols, with or without sedation
  • Whole body MRI with or without sedation: including MR enterography, MRCP, MR angiography, MR urography, and musculoskeletal MRI.  
  • VCUG (Voiding Cystourethrogram) Often children and their families do not know exactly what to expect when visiting the hospital for certain tests and procedures. The following link directs you to a short booklet geared toward children and designed to help explain the steps of a Voiding Cystourethrogram (VCUG). We encourage parents and guardians to review the booklet before sharing it with your child. Once you are familiar with the resource it can guide you in the best way to explain the actual procedure to your child.
