  • Is there a difference between pediatric radiology and adult radiology?

    Children are not little adults so there is much difference in doing imaging exams on them beyond just adjusting the dose of the minimal radiation used to do X-rays and CT scans. The Society for Pediatric Radiology, to which most Pediatric Radiologists belong, initiated a program to which most quality hospital and outpatient imaging centers subscribe, Imaging Gently. The point is that radiation doses and the different views be only those necessary to get a diagnostic exam. Beyond these common sense measures, careful consideration should be given as to which exam is best, taking into mind whether the answer can be achieved without radiation at all. For instance, ultrasound rather CT for some abdominal problems. Or MRI rather than CT for head and neck problems. READ MORE
