New Jersey Pediatric Imaging

Radiology Services Designed for Children

Imaging services are primarily created with an adult body in mind, but many radiologists are also trained in pediatric imaging. At Atlantic Medical Imaging, we have an experienced team of radiologists who understand the unique needs of children. Our imaging centers in New Jersey are prepared to provide your child with the service he or she needs.

We strive to create a family-friendly atmosphere at all of our centers. Our staff is used to working with children and will work to make sure they have a positive experience. Many parents want to stay with their children during the exam, and we encourage this whenever possible.

Services for Kids of all Ages & Sizes

The two major things that need to be addressed in pediatric imaging is the patient’s size and how much radiation they can safely be exposed to. Although the thought of exposing your child to any radiation can make parents nervous, these tests can save lives and medical engineers have gone through extensive lengths to make sure children are not put at any significant risk.

AMI is a supporter of the Image Gently™ Alliance, which promotes child-friendly radiation doses in imaging services. They strive to create image technology and techniques that scan only the affected area and eliminate the need for duplicate scans.

People are exposed to background radiation on daily basis. This is radiation that we are all exposed to and cannot avoid. The following are comparisons between imaging radiation and background radiation for children:

  • A single chest x-ray is equivalent to 1 day of background radiation
  • A head CT scan is equivalent to up to 8 months of background radiation
  • An abdominal CT scan is equivalent to up to 20 months of background radiation

By partnering with the Image Gently Alliance, we have significantly reduced the radiation doses our younger patients are exposed to without compromising image quality. If you still have concerns about radiation, our team will work with you and your doctor to find the ideal test for your child.
