Overview

The Pediatric Radiology Division is based at Children’s Health℠ Children's Medical Center and provides coverage for Children's Health℠, as well as pediatric imaging for Parkland Hospital and William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital.

Our pediatric radiologists are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology and hold Certificates of Added Qualifications in pediatric radiology and/or neuroradiology. Many of them are fellowship trained in addition to pediatric radiology, including neuroradiology, musculoskeletal radiology, interventional radiology, and body imaging.

Patient Care

Our pediatric radiologists provide a range of diagnostic and interventional radiology services for the smallest, most fragile of newborns to children and teenagers. They understand the unique imaging needs of pediatric patients, and collaborate with physicians in other services to ensure children receive the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Research

Intellectual vibrancy and technological innovation are core values of the Pediatric Radiology Division, which are developed through collaborative efforts involving clinical and research faculty and staff. Current areas of interest to our faculty include diffusion tensor imaging of the brain, osteosarcoma, hearing loss, congenital brain malformations, and ultrasound contrast agents. We also have an advanced image analysis laboratory featuring innovative image processing tools, such as interactive data language, filter signal processing, tract-based spatial statistics, and TrackVis. Additionally, we are actively engaged in developing software for track density imaging, advanced diffusion techniques, and arterial spin labeling.

Education

The Pediatric Radiology Division provides clinical and academic training for residents and fellows in the Department of Radiology. Our Pediatric Radiology Fellowship, Pediatric Interventional Radiology Fellowship, and Pediatric Neuroradiology Fellowship training programs are intended to prepare radiologists for successful careers in either academic or private practice settings, and to become independent subspecialty consultants who will be leaders in the field.
