Trust AMI for Your Child’s Imaging Exam

When going into an imaging procedure for the first time, it can be a little overwhelming. This is especially true when you are just a child going into your first imaging procedure. Between the unfamiliar machines and the uncertainty of the diagnosis, you want to bring your child to a place that understands kids and is committed to quality care.

At AMI, we understand how nerve-racking it is for parents to hear that their child needs an imaging exam, sometimes an exam that requires radiation. We know that these tests can save lives and with technological advancements and child-friendly protocols, we can reduce the radiation dose your child receives.

When it comes to our littlest patients, we know less is better. Our team of board certified, fellowship-trained radiologists work to ensure that every imaging study for our pediatric patients is age appropriate. AMI is a proud supporter of the Image Gently™ Alliance, which promotes "child-size" radiation doses in pediatric imaging care.

Here’s what we are doing at AMI to minimize the radiation dose for our pediatric patients:

  • When scanning patients, we make sure we are using parameters that uses the least possible radiation while still obtaining high quality images.
  • Utilize software which allows for lower doses of radiation.
  • Scan only the area of interest.
  • Our "child-appropriate" protocols allow us to significantly reduce radiation doses without compromising the images our doctors see.

At AMI, your family has access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies in an environment that is safe and pleasant for patients of all ages. We offer a full spectrum of imaging services including, CT, MRI, X-ray, Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy and Nuclear Medicine.

We want your child to be calm and comfortable during their imaging test and our staff will work to make sure your child has a positive experience. At the end of each procedure, we offer kids a toy from our treasure box and as a parent, you can be assured that we will get the results to your child’s pediatrician quickly.
