The Children's Mercy Department of Radiology offers diagnostic imaging equipment especially designed to accommodate children of all ages and sizes. Our facilities and diagnostic imaging equipment are designed to alleviate fears and provide services with minimal need for sedation or restraint.

Radiology Staff

Our team includes a team of board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric radiologists and qualified technologists who provide a safe and comfortable diagnostic testing environment for pediatric patients. Our pediatric radiologists, technologists, sedation team and child life specialists are experts at alleviating fears.

Department Highlights
