Diagnosing Differently

Diagnosing Differently

Children’s National Imaging offers 5 modalities of diagnostic imaging including 3 Tesla MRI, CT with dose reduction software, digital X-RAY, pulsed Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound. Anesthesia sedation is available for MRI, CT and Fluoroscopy. Children’s National Imaging also has Child Life Specialists available to assist children during fluoroscopy, CT and MRI procedures. Our Child Life Specialists also offer a program called “MRI, I Can Do IT” which is available to help children have an MRI scan without the use of sedation.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Children’s National Imaging has state-of-the-art equipment that provides referring physicians and their patients with high quality pediatric imaging. For CT, XRAY, and FLUOROSCOPY we use low dose radiation protocols and specialized software (CT) that ensures the lowest possible exposure to radiation. Our radiologists are board certified pediatric specialists who have extensive experience imaging children and rendering high quality interpretations.

Highly specialized pediatric neuro-radiologists interpret MRI scans of the brain, neck and spine to ensure accurate diagnosis of childhood neurological conditions. If your child requires sedation, our anesthesiologists are board certified pediatric specialists who administer safe and effective sedation. We also have pediatric technologists and nurses on staff to provide child-friendly care to our very special patient population. Our center’s procedure rooms have child-friendly décor and imagery to make our pediatric patients feel comfortable, experience a sense of fun, and to distract them when undergoing some of the more difficult procedures.
