Radiology Why Children's Mercy
  • Our staff works hard to alleviate children's fears. As a result, most examinations are performed without restraint or sedation. Although anesthesia is rarely needed, our physicians and nurses are skilled in providing sedation for routine and complex medical procedures.
  • State-of-the-art imaging includes:

High-speed, spiral CT with 3-D workstations
High-speed, short bore MRI
High-resolution ultrasound with color Doppler
Low-dose fluoroscopy
Interventional radiology
Special procedures and angiography
Nuclear medicine including SPECT

  • Our experienced nursing staff provides venipuncture, catheterization and sedation services with compassion to ensure quality examinations and patient satisfaction.
  • The radiology staff includes fellowship-trained pediatric radiologists, certified by the American College of Radiology.
  • Our dedicated MRI suite is designed to specifically accommodate children and their families. Patients can watch television, watch their own videotapes, or listen to compact discs during the procedure. This allows staff to perform the MRI with minimal sedation and without restraints.
