Our Imaging staff strives to make sure kids are comfortable during their tests. Our team includes specially trained radiological technologists, child life specialists, diagnostic nurses and radiologists dedicated to the needs of children.
The fluoroscopy unit and waiting room are decorated specifically for pediatric patients with equipment that reduces radiation used on kids by 80 percent. That, combined with the child-friendly décor and amenities, such as a TV/DVD system, provide a more pleasant experience for kids.
With help from a grant from the TMC Foundation, our technology allows for digital pulse fluoroscopy, a digital fluoroscopy loop and dose monitoring system. The dose monitoring system records the level of radiation each child receives, providing physicians with better information upon which to make decisions.
