Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
In 2004, as a response to meet the growing needs of pediatric imaging services in Broward County, Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, expanded its MRI service to the Nicklaus Children's Dan Marino Outpatient Center, becoming the first MRI service in Broward County exclusively for children. The service, provided on a short-bore General Electric 1.5 Tesla scanner utilizing the same protocols being used at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, are read by our team of pediatric radiologist at Nicklaus Children's Hospital via a high speed network connection.
