We love little bones. Which is why at Children’s Mercy, our Radiology team is focused on capturing the best image the first time — using the lowest amount of radiation necessary to get the highest quality image.
Many times, we receive suboptimal images from non-pediatric focused imaging locations that have caused the patient to endure more radiation than required. Oftentimes this leads to additional radiology tests and cost to the families, just to get a proper image for diagnosis. We want to make sure your patients don’t go through this duplicative process.
Below are examples of images we’ve received compared to images taken at a Children’s Mercy location. See the difference and review our Frequently Asked Questions — answered by our own pediatric board-certified radiologists.
