In terms of imaging expertise, a child is not simply a little adult. Disease processes of children are different and the specific imaging needs of the pediatric patient are unique. RCND follows a sub-specialty focus to optimize care for children by providing patient-specific and age-specific radiological services. Pediatric radiologists complete a general diagnostic radiology residence and then spend an additional 1-2 years in fellowship training to prepare them to care specifically for pediatric patients.
RCND pediatric radiologists are an integral part of the Medical City Children’s Hospital and utilize the guidelines developed under the “Image Gently” program. For more information regarding the Image Gently radiation safety initiative please visit www.pedrad.org
