Description

Washington University’s Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology physicians direct and provide the clinical care at the Joe Buck Imaging Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. This center is a leader in providing safe, high-quality and child-focused pediatric imaging services. The Joe Buck Imaging Center has the largest pediatric radiologist team in the region and performs more than 100,000 pediatric radiology exams each year.

Washington University’s radiologists are committed to reducing radiation exposure for pediatric patients who receive imaging services. To accomplish this, national guidelines to keep radiation dose as low as reasonably possible are followed while choosing the safest, most appropriate test for your child.

Radiology technologists at St. Louis Children’s Hospital are specially trained in pediatric imaging, which results in reduced radiation exposure and scan time, as well as the need for sedation. Dedicated technologists possess the expertise to interact with children to receive the highest quality exam.

When sedation is necessary, Washington University radiologists coordinate with a team of nurse anesthetists, pediatric hospitalists, and pediatric anesthesiologists, which allows us to provide the safest and most appropriate level of sedation for the patient.
