Pediatrics

Some heart diagnostic tests in the past were limited for children due to risks posed by radiation. Goryeb Children’s Hospital is changing what’s possible, using new techniques that allow us to tap into the detailed, 3-D imaging available with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our pediatric cardiologist only scans the areas needed to make a diagnosis, not the whole chest or even the whole heart, which reduces exposure to radiation and meets image gently® guidelines. She can also perform MRI on the tiniest patients without the need for sedation. Read more >
