Unique Expertise in Pediatric Imaging

With one of the busiest programs in New England, the Center for Pediatric and Imaging Sedation at Hasbro Children’s Hospital is the only fecility in the state with fellowship-trained, board-certified pediatric radiologists with the expertise to perform and interpret pediatric imaging tests, as well as to diagnose conditions unique to children. The center is also the only facility in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts to offer integrated imaging and sedation services for children. We conduct tests gently and tailor imaging exams to keep radiation exposure as low as possible. In addition to the diversions offered by our child life specialists, our staff has extensive experience helping ease anxiety to make your child’s experience as enjoyable as possible.

The center for Pediatric Imaging and Sedation at Hasbro Children's Hospital is a full-service medical imaging suite offering a complete range of services exclusively for children, including:
  • MRI
  • CT
  • Ultrasound
  • X-ray
  • Fluoroscopy

Minimal Exposure to Radiation

The center invests in the latest, most advanced imaging technology. Our CT scanner is equipped with special radiation dose reduction software to assure the lowest possible radiation exposures and the highest image resolution.

Multiple Tests, One Visit

Our medical team excels at collaborating with each child’s doctor and with other hospital departments to complete multiple imaging tests and diagnostic procedures on a child during a single visit. Fewer visits mean fewer absences from school and normal routines. Whenever possible you can stay with your child during the tests.

Making MRI Entertaining for Children

We realize that it is sometimes a challenge to lie still and do nothing, especially for children. To offer diversion and alleviate anxiety or boredom, we now have CinemaVision, an entertainment system that makes MRI entertaining! CinemaVision is a 3D virtual reality system with multiple entertainment options from standard video, television and PC input, while allowing two-way communication with technologists. The patient wears a comfortable, light-weight headset that delivers an experience that simulates watching a high-resolution 62-inch screen from less than six feet away.

Younger patients may receive sedation services as needed; older patients typically do not need sedation. Whenever possible, you may stay with your child during the tests.
