Pediatric diseases are complicated and sensitive. Children are not simply young adults. Diversified Radiology of Colorado pediatric radiologists are Board Certified pediatric imaging specialists. They carry the American College of Radiology Certification, which is an additional qualification in Pediatric Imaging. Pediatric patients are provided the highest level of care possible through on-site, high quality equipment with site-to-site Teleradiology linkage. This allows for pediatric imaging consultations on a daily basis throughout our network of hospital partners.
Children often require the same type of radiology tests as adults, yet these tests can be very frightening to children because the tests cannot be easily explained to them. The challenge of good radiology service is to provide a quality examination with the least amount of trauma to the child. Additionally, children are more susceptible to radiation than adults. Therefore, it is important that your provider explain the type of testing that your child will be undergoing, and ensure that they are using the lowest possible dose to ensure your child’s safety. More information about radiation protection in children can be found on the Image Gently website, www.imagegently.org. If your child needs radiology services, we encourage you to visit any of our hospital partners.
