We provide comprehensive
services to assist in diagnosing disorders in children. These services range
from plain film radiography to CT, MRI, fetal MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and
leadership position, the unit has introduced the first dedicated pediatric MRI
unit fully supported by pediatric anesthesiology. The consistent availability
of sedation in a stand-alone facility for a defined patient population
significantly advances the efficacy and quality of pediatric care.
Pediatric Imaging works
closely with the Department of Pediatrics and pediatric subspecialists to
provide timely, accurate and effective diagnosis and treatment. They interpret
images in all modalities and also perform imaging-guided interventional
procedures, including biopsies and drainages.
The spectrum of pediatric
disease is wide and ranges from congenital anomalies involving the brain, spine
, chest or abdomen through infection, or malignancy.
These diseases may lead
to serious consequences and are best diagnosed at an earlier stage. The ability
to deal with children is an important way to efficiently manage and diagnose
Our protocols for x-ray
and CT for the pediatric age group include the most up to date techniques that
utilize the lowest radiation doses, CARE Dose™ and CARE Vision™ which have
achieved dose reductions as high as 93% from similar machines, making pediatric
imaging a safe and sound modality.
