The Department of Radiology at Nicklaus Children's Hospital is an exclusive pediatric radiology facility. We have been imaging children since 1950; constantly providing state-of-the art equipment and staff that is trained and dedicated to the care of infants and children. The department is staffed by specialists in all radiology fields. These experts work together with clinical sub-specialists and attending physicians to support the care of children.

The department's commitment to excellence has led to its establishment as a regional leader for pediatric radiology, serving children throughout Florida as well as the Caribbean, Central America and South America.

Our children's imaging center performed in excess of 140,000 cases last year.

The department offers the latest equipment to support imaging of children, enabling the team to acquire the best quality images with minimal patient exposure to radiation.

This state-of-the art system makes it possible to obtain the highest quality medical images in children in a fraction of the time required from other PET/CT systems. Due to the speed of the imaging process of this system, young patients undergoing studies may require less sedation and in some cases may not need sedation at all.
