Pediatric radiology is a subspecialty of radiology involving the imaging of fetuses, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

Comprehensive Imaging with Safer Doses for Kids

By using the latest technology and practices, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger offers comprehensive imaging services while delivering the lowest radiation doses in the region. This is important because sensitivity to radiation is highest earlier in life. But gentler technology is only part of the Children’s at Erlanger difference. Our family-friendly team of fellowship-trained pediatric radiologists is here to guide you every step of the way.
