The department medical imaging at Dayton Children’s offers a full spectrum of diagnostic imaging for pediatric patients. The pediatric radiologists are assisted by technologists and staff trained in working with infants, children, teenagers and young adults.
Medical imaging has state-of-the-art equipment designed to perform diagnostic examinations with minimum radiation exposure to patients. Onsite MRI is available at the main and south campus locations, offering the highest quality images with child-friendly features like video goggles.
In many cases, parents can be with their child during the examination, and children are encouraged to bring their own movie.
At the south campus, our MRI offers patients features such as reduced noise, making exams more comfortable and easier to complete. The size of the MRI opening is the largest opening available helping those patients who are claustrophobic.
