Pediatric Radiology

Pediatric radiology evaluates the entire body, reflecting on how it and its metabolism work and how it changes with age and physical development. The range of pediatric disorders varies greatly from disorders in adults; therefore, pediatric radiologists play a very important role because of their training in interpreting cross-sectional imaging studies, gastrointestinal procedures in infants and children, metabolic and developmental disorders, and trauma and abuse in children, all while providing special attention to the unique emotional needs of children and their families.

Children are more sensitive to radiation. Having a sub-specialty pediatric radiologist who specializes in how radiation effects children is crucial to providing them with the safest and best care.
