Within Boston Children's Hospital's Department of Radiology, our Pediatric Diagnostic Radiology offers standard radiography (conventional X-rays) and fluoroscopy, an imaging technique that uses X-rays to create real-time images of the body. We use these common imaging techniques to help your child's doctor evaluate illnesses or injuries of nearly every part of the body. We perform more than 135,000 exams each year in Boston and at our satellite locations, which makes us one of the country's largest general diagnostic centers for children.
