Pediatric ImagingIn addition to the latest and greatest CT and MR scanners, we have upgraded virtually every existing piece of equipment to the most advanced version available, reducing the amount of radiation our pediatric patients receive. The fluoroscopy machine is pediatric specific with additional filters that reduce radiation unlike an adult fluoroscopy machine that does not have these filters. Our x-ray machine is digital, meaning there is less radiation used than with traditional x-ray or computed radiography (CR), all done in a dedicated pediatric environment by staff that have gone through extensive special training!

Family Centered Care

Pediatric ImagingAt Medical City Children’s Hospital, we know that family-centered care is very important to all parents. For most exams, parents are encouraged to stay in the room with their child. Having the parents present, in most cases, makes the child more comfortable and cooperative.
