About the Division of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology
Our team performs over 130,000 diagnostic and minimally invasive procedures annually using state-of-the-art imaging equipment. We provide our patients with a supportive family environment and use the lowest achievable exposure to radiation, minimizing the chance for possible risk. Many of our radiologists are national and international authorities in the field, with many radiologists identifying a pediatric radiology subspecialty of expertise. We employ over 160 radiologists, research faculty, physicists, technologists, nurses and support staff. Our board-certified radiologists hold additional certifications in pediatric radiology, neuroradiology and vascular/interventional radiology. Our technologists are certified in specific modalities and are trained to work specifically with the pediatric population. We also have licensed nursing staff who are experts in pediatric conscience sedation. Meet the Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology team.
