The Pediatric Radiology subspecialists image patients ages 18 and under at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital.
What We Do
The subspecialty of Pediatric Radiology an Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital images pediatric patients ages 18 and under through ultrasound, radiography and unclear medicine, fluoroscopy, advanced cross sectional CT and MR imaging of the brain and body, dedicated pediatric cardiac imaging, and interventional radiology for therapy. Our technologists are pediatric trained and our equipment is tailored to meet the needs of young and sick children. We are dedicated to providing as low a radiation dose as necessary in our imaging according to the Image Gently Campaign. We perform over 131,000 procedures per year and are continuing to grow currently providing offsite or remote coverage to seven additional outpatient sites and six affiliate sites.
In partnership with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, we offer several one-year pediatric radiology fellowships positions each year, approved and accredited by the ACGME. Fellows rotate through all pediatric radiology subspecialty areas in medical imaging. Visit our fellowship page for more information on the program and how to apply.
As the pediatric training site for Feinberg School of Medicine, we help educate medical imaging residents and fellows. Medical Imaging (Radiology) is also the training location for several local colleges within imaging programs. We have an active research program including patient studies (clinical trials). Our other studies include 4D flow MRI in congenital heart disease and vascular abnormalities, MRI measurements of brown fat to assess development of childhood obesity, and multicompartment, diffusion weighted MRI to tell the difference between recurrence of a brain tumor and tissue damage that can occur from radiation therapy.
