Comprehensive Testing for Orthopaedic Conditions

X-ray of scoliosis An X-ray scan of a spine diagnosed with scoliosis

Dayton Children’s offers sophisticated imaging technology to help diagnose pediatric orthopaedic injuries and conditions. These technologies include:

  • Digital capture X-ray
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) — equipped with video capabilities so that patients can watch a movie during their test!
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Ultrasound

All of our clinics offer X-ray on site, and ultrasound is available at our outpatient centers in Beavercreek, Franklin, Kettering, Springboro, Springfield and Vandalia. MRI and CT are available on our main campus only.

Our imaging equipment is designed for children and teens, with an emphasis on comfort and safety. Our radiology team adjusts the amount of radiation each patient receives, taking the child’s weight and size into account. Delivering “kid-sized” doses is important, because the growing tissues in children’s bodies are especially sensitive to radiation. Learn more about medical imaging at Dayton Children’s
