Pediatric Radiologists are experts in the use of imaging techniques and equipment to diagnosis illnesses, injuries, and diseases of infants, children and adolescents.
The bodies of children are still developing and can appear quite different from adults. The unique physiologies of children make having someone who is a practiced expert in the nuances of reading and interpreting children's scans absolutely critical to successful pediatric care.
Pediatric radiologists understand the unique needs of children from specifying the correct procedures, keeping radiation exposures low, interpreting images and coordinating with pediatricians for future care.
