The Pediatric Radiology Department at Boston Children’s Hospital combines individualized care, specialty expertise, and the most advanced technology to obtain the highest quality ultrasounds for children with images that provide the most accurate diagnoses for patients ranging in age from fetal life through young adulthood.
Pediatric Ultrasound, which is also known as sonography, is a painless, non-invasive imaging technique that lets us look inside your child's body without the use of radiation. It uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of organs, muscles, soft tissues and blood vessels. We perform over 30.000 ultrasound exams each year in Boston, in the hospital's Advanced Fetal Care Center and at our satellite centers in Waltham, Lexington, Peabody and South Weymouth.
Because many parents and children want to know what to expect when they come for an ultrasound, we have posted helpful information here. If you have additional questions about your child’s upcoming exam or procedure, please call us at 617-355-7840 and we will be happy to help you.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
