Paediatric radiology is diagnostic radiology focused on children, from babies to young adults. At Envision Medical Imaging, our Paediatric radiologists have specialised knowledge of medical conditions that affect infants, children and young people and can use imaging techniques that may prevent the need for more invasive diagnosis such as exploratory surgery. Our Paediatric radiologists are highly trained to understand which tests are most appropriate for the child, and to make sure the testing is safe and carried out properly.
Our highly trained medical imaging team are aware of the special needs of children and work to make our imaging services as stress-free as possible for children and their carers. We offer all aspects of Paediatric imaging including MRI, Ultrasound, X – Ray and low dose – CT studies interpreted by our highly experienced Radiologists.
Paediatric radiology employs a range of modalities including:
Envision offers a wide bore MRI scanner allowing easy visibility and patient contact that minimise claustrophobia and are ideal for children. We have GP rebatable scans for paediatric patients (less than 16 years) for Brain, Spine, Knee, Hip, Elbow and Wrist scans. All paediatric rebatable scans are performed on 3T MRI, which provides optimal image quality in a shorter time.
Specific Pediatric imaging tests offered at Envision MI include Paediatric Ultrasound for the following areas:
Our Paediatric Medical Imaging Equipment
Our practice is equipped with state-of-the-art digital equipment including 1.5T MRI, 3T MRI, The revolutionary Force multislice CT with cardiac capability, ultrasound, and the latest in filmless digital reporting and image archiving and distribution to ensure the highest level of diagnostic service for paediatric patients.
Ultra low radiation dose levels for every patient, every time
Cone Beam CT is a scan which allows 3D visualisation of the teeth, jaws and face. It is one of the more recent developments in dental imaging. It provides clinicians with much more information about these structures to help with optimal diagnosis and treatment or surgical planning. Envision has two of the leading Cone Beam CT scanners, the iCAT and Sirona Gallileos, at our Wembley and Booragoon rooms. We also have the only i-Cat Cone Beam scanner south of the river at our Booragoon practice. Both these machines are capable of ultra-low dose imaging, comparable to doses delivered in many common dental X-rays. More about Cone Beam
