Pediatric and Children's Radiology, MRI and Chest X-Rays
At the Department of Pediatric Radiology at Cohen Medical Center, we are here to provide you and your referring physician with the best radiological evaluation for your child. We provide the safest and most comfortable possible environment. We perform over 50,000 pediatric radiology exams a year in our children’s hospital.
Our staff comprises subspecialty pediatric radiologists, technologists and clerical staff who have all been chosen for their care and compassion as well as their skills and experience. Our Pediatric Radiology Department staff physicians hold academic appointments at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine. In addition, our physicians are involved in research and the education of residents and medical students.
Pediatric chest x-rays and pediatric MRI exams are the most common diagnostic exams. A pediatric MRI will create detailed images that are based on the water content of the body tissues while using both magnet and radio waves.
Pediatric Radiography - In cases of very young children, they may be placed within an immobilization device for optimal positioning. Your child's exam will be read by a subspecialty trained staffed radiologist. If you would like a copy of the study, please inform the technologist at the beginning of the study and a CD will be made for you.
Pediatric Fluoroscopy - is a pediatric x-ray procedure that makes it possible to see a child’s internal organs in motion. Pediatric Fluoroscopy uses an x-ray to produce real-time video images.
Pediatric Esophagram - is an exam where a series of x-rays of the esophagus are taken. These x-rays are taken after the patient drinks a solution called a barium swallow, which coats and outlines the walls of the esophagus and is used to help visualize the esophagus..
Pediatric Ultrasound or Sonogram - This exam produces sound waves that are beamed into the child’s body causing returning sound waves “echoes” that are recorded to visualize structures beneath the skin.
Pediatric Computed Tomography or CT scan - Is an x-ray procedure that combines many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate multiple cross-sectional views of the patient. If needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body can be created as well.
Pediatric Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI - This is a radiology technique that uses magnetism, radio waves, and a computer to produce images of body structures. There are many different examinations that can be performed with this technology and each examination is tailored to your child.
