What is Pediatric Imaging?
Pediatric imaging is the use of technology to visualize body parts, organs and tissues for diagnoses, and in some cases treatment, for the fetus, infants, children and young adults. Most imaging procedures are completely noninvasive. Imaging technology can diagnose a variety of injuries, vascular abnormalities, ENT conditions, musculoskeletal disorders, among other ailments.
What Pediatric Imaging Services Do We Provide?
BayCare Imaging provides many types of pediatric imaging services. We offer a full range of imaging studies including x-ray, ultrasounds, MRI and much more. You can view our full list of pediatric imaging services just below.
For most imaging exams, sedation is not necessary. However, in some instances, sedation may be necessary when a study requires a child to hold still for an extended period of time to obtain the most accurate result. Your physician will help you decide if sedation is the best option for your child.
Additionally, the radiology team at BayCare is proud to be a participant in the Image Gently® campaign developed by the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging. We are dedicated to the safety of your child and follow strict protocols to reduce radiation exposure.
