Pediatric radiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions in children. These radiologists have completed additional fellowship training in pediatric radiology after their radiology residency at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country.
The spectrum of pediatric disorders varies greatly from those encountered in adults, providing an important role for the specialist in pediatric imaging. Congenital, metabolic and developmental disorders are focused in this area, along with the more common problems of trauma and abuse. Pediatric radiologists are specially trained in performing and interpreting cross-sectional imaging studies, gastrointestinal and genitourinary procedures in infants and children, with special attention to the unique emotional needs of these patients and their families.
