Leading the campaign to lower pediatric radiation exposure.
The Pediatric Radiology section is comprised of board-certified, subspecialty trained radiologists with expertise in pediatric imaging. Our radiologists use patient-sized and disease-specific protocols to answer the referring physician’s questions.
Because of our strong academic and research background, we apply the latest advances in imaging techniques and use the most technologically-advanced equipment. In fact, we were the first group in Missouri to use FLASH CT scanner technology. This allows us to deliver high-quality images with significantly reduced radiation dose and need for sedation.
Trendsetters, we continuously monitor our radiation dose and encourage other facilities to lower the radiation rendered in their pediatric CT scans. Minimally invasive procedures are accomplished in a dedicated interventional pediatric radiology suite. Our radiology services are provided at St Louis Children’s Hospital and at the new, Children’s Specialty Care Center.
