Dr. Dawn E Light MD's Expert Contributions
1.The equipment and policies at a pediatric center is designed specifically for children, so usually the amount of radiation given to the child is less. 2. As a child grows, the lungs, heart and bones are changing, so a pediatric specialist has a better idea of normal images at each age. 3. The problems in children are much different than adults, so things that look like one diagnosis in an adult may well mean something else in a child. Dawn Light READ MORE
