Yale New Haven Children's Hospital provides a full range of imaging services for infants, children and young adults.
Our specially trained radiology team is available around the clock. They provide a full array of diagnostic tests in a pleasant, age-appropriate environment. Our technologies include CT, MRI, X-ray, fluoroscopy and ultrasound.
Our new beach-themed pediatric MRI suite at the hospital contains a larger-than-life sand castle enclosing the MRI scanner; the first of its kind in the region, and seaside murals cover the walls throughout the space.
The high-tech MR scanner is equipped with special software that allows clear images to be taken, even with some patient movement. This helps prevent the need for sedation for many patients. A noise filter dramatically reduces the noise of the scan and the opening of the MRI is larger than most machines. Special Cinemavision goggles are also available.
Services are provided Monday thru Friday, 7 am to 7 pm and anesthesia/sedation is available daily.
Pediatric diagnostic imaging is staffed by physicians, technologists and nurses specializing in diagnostic imaging and the care of infants, children and adolescents. Our facilities include a designated area for the observation of children recovering from sedation. We offer:
- Radiography (X-ray)
- Computed tomography (CT scan)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Interventional radiology
- Nuclear medicine
- Cardiac catheterization
- Radioisotope imaging
