Services Tailored to Your Child
Undergoing an MRI or ultrasound can be especially stressful for a child and requires a delicate approach that only an experienced pediatric team can provide. It can also be nerve-racking for you, as a parent. When your child has a health concern, you want answers and you want them fast. At Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, we offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art radiology and imaging services in a warm, caring and family friendly environment that caters to the unique needs of children. In an effort to help your child feel comfortable, our amenities include interactive game stations, art activities assisted by volunteers, and a catalog of HD movies to view during MRI exams. Our staff also includes a Child Life specialist to help our young patients relax for more extensive diagnostic procedures.
Our completely digital imaging system allows your child’s physician to have access to your child’s imaging results from their home or office. And all test results are interpreted by board-certified radiologists to help ensure that the unique physical conditions of childhood are being taken into consideration. Should your child need them, we offer the following services:
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Fluoroscopy procedure
- General radiography (X-rays)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine and SPECT imaging
- Radiation dose reduction software
Our specialists provide imaging services to more than 78,000 pediatric patients each year. And you can have confidence in knowing Orlando Health Arnold Palmer is recognized by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as an accredited imaging center in the areas of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Medicine, Computed Tomography (CT) and Ultrasound.
