Pediatric radiology and diagnostic imaging in Denver
Children require specialized care, and that is especially true when a child needs medical imaging. The compassionate imaging and radiology team at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RHMC) focuses on making each child feel comfortable while performing a variety of pediatric imaging procedures.
From identifying broken bones to diagnosing diseases, imaging and radiology services are an integral part of pediatric care at RMHC. However, undergoing tests can often be frightening and overwhelming to children.
The challenge of a good radiology service for kids is to provide a quality examination with the least amount of trauma and anxiety. So, our RMHC team does everything possible to help children feel safe and at ease during procedures by addressing common stressors or fears.
At RMHC, our pediatric imaging specialists are certified by the American College of Radiology and have achieved an additional qualification in pediatric imaging. Our imaging team has extensive experience, the skills and the nuances of producing accurate information for referring pediatricians, family practice physicians and subspecialists at our hospital.
