A paediatric radiologist is an expert in the diagnosis of illnesses, injuries, and diseases of infants, children, and adolescents, using imaging techniques and equipment.
Paediatric radiologists are experts in selecting the best imaging techniques to diagnose medical and surgical problems. Examples of imaging techniques include X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear medicine. Paediatric radiologists make sure that testing is performed properly and safely. They also interpret the results of the test and make an appropriate diagnosis.
Paediatric radiologists work in many medical settings that have children’s medical services. These include children’s hospitals, university medical centres, community hospitals, and some radiology practices.
