Beaumont Children's offers imaging services to support the diagnosis of numerous childhood diseases. Services include X-rays, CT (computed tomography or CAT scan), ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine and procedures such as fluoroscopy, biopsy and drainage of fluid or abscess collections.
Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric radiologists have additional training and experience in the interpretation of pediatric studies. Supporting the radiologists are technologists specially trained to help children and their families feel relaxed and comfortable while accommodating any special needs.
Getting an MRI doesn’t have to be scary. Here's what your child can expect when they come to Beaumont for an MRI:
Should your child experience an injury and require imaging, this summer or anytime, David Bloom, M.D, pediatric radiologist at Beaumont Children’s, offers several tips for selecting an imaging center.
Beaumont has 12 convenient locations in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, where patients have access to pediatric radiology services.
From utilizing the latest equipment for quicker studies to performing patient exams at the lowest radiation exposure possible, your child's safety is our priority. Beaumont Children's participates in the "Image Gently" campaign of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging. We also limit the region of the body being imaged with X-rays to the smallest possible area and tailor examinations to the size of the patient, from the smallest newborn to the largest teenager. The Pediatric Imaging section participates in all Beaumont radiation safety initiatives.
Preparation for theImaging Exam
Some exams require that your child fast before the exam or procedure. You will be given specific information about exam preparation from your physician or the scheduler when you make your child's radiology appointment. Call your doctor if you have questions.
