The Department of Pediatric Radiology at Boston Children's Hospital is the country's oldest and largest group of pediatric imaging specialists. We believe in imaging children gently, which means choosing the right test or procedure at the right time for your patients, and doing it the right way.

  • We focus on safety, using equipment and protocols that keep radiation exposure as low as reasonably possible.
  • In some cases, we avoid radiation altogether by using pediatric ultrasounds or MRI.
  • Whenever possible, we use techniques that don't rely on sedation to help children stay calm and still for imaging studies.
  • Our pediatric interventional radiologists are experts at performing minimally invasive image-guided procedures using special techniques appropriate for pediatric patients.

To make a referral

We provide imaging services at five locations in Boston and the surrounding suburbs:

  • Boston

Note that we offer extended evening and weekend hours in Boston, Peabody and Waltham. And all five locations can see walk-in patients for x-rays without a scheduled appointment during regular business hours.

To send us your patients' scans

 When you contact Boston Children’s to request a consultation you will be asked if your patient has imaging in his or her medical history. If so, you will be invited to share those exams.
