The pediatric radiologists at Northwell Health Imaging are specially trained in the imaging of infants and children. We use state-of-the-art technology and protocols specifically designed for children to ensure outstanding image quality while limiting or avoiding radiation exposure. And because we understand that both illness and medical procedures can be particularly stressful for our small patients and their families, we work to maintain a child-friendly environment and comforting approach.
Our pediatric radiology division emphasizes quality, caring and full integration into the medical and surgical care provided throughout Northwell Health.
- Our radiologists are subspecialists, fellowship-trained in pediatric radiology. Sub-specialization allows physicians to develop a deeper knowledge of their area of focus, which studies show tends to increase accuracy and decrease errors in study interpretation, reducing the need for repeat studies and promoting improved outcomes. Our pediatric radiologists focus exclusively on interpreting pediatric images and have expertise in both pediatric disease and the nuances in the way those diseases and conditions can appear on imaging exams.
- We use state-of-the-art technology to provide highly precise, accurate images. Because we know that children are particularly sensitive to radiation, we are a proud member of the Image Gently Alliance, founded by the Society for Pediatric Radiology and the American College of Radiology to ensure safe, high-quality imaging for children. When possible, we use modalities that do not require ionizing radiation, including pediatric ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). When radiation is necessary, as with radiography, fluoroscopy and computed tomography (CT), we always use the lowest possible dose.
- Our highly trained and caring technologists and nurses ensure that every image is of the highest possible quality while helping our young patients feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the exam. We are always available to answer your questions.
- Our pediatric radiologists work closely with pediatric subspecialists throughout Cohen Children's Medical Center and Northwell Health, such as experts in pediatric surgery, primary care, neonatology, oncology, orthopedics, gastroenterology and urology, among others. We consult and collaborate on an ongoing basis to help develop and manage the most effective treatment plan for your child.
