Pediatric Imaging

Northside Hospital’s Pediatric Imaging Center is located in the Pediatric Center at Northside Alpharetta and is a full service diagnostic imaging center dedicated solely to children’s needs. We understand the importance of treating kids differently than adults. Children are special. They need specially developed and designed pediatric protocols that result in a quality image with minimal radiation exposure, board-certified radiologists with additional training in pediatric imaging, and a child-friendly setting.

Our unique center with a playful aquatic theme features all of these and more… an outstanding pediatric staff specially trained in making procedures safe and comfortable, while engaging children, the latest technology, same-day scheduling, convenient hours and location.

The Pediatric Imaging Center at Northside Alpharetta specifically tailored to the needs of pediatric patients and offers the following:

  • Laboratory
  • X-Ray (no appointment needed)
  • Fluoroscopy, including arthrograms, VCUG’s and modified barium swallows with a certified speech therapist
  • Ultrasound, including infant hips, brains, spines, pylorus
  • CT with and without contrast, including enterography and urography
  • MRI with and without contrast, including enterography, urography, and defectography
  • Procedural Sedation Planning for your Child’s Sedation: When procedural sedation is recommended, we use a variety of effective and safe techniques, which are tailored to the specific needs of each child and their planned procedure. Our pediatric anesthesiologists work closely with the radiologists to minimize anxiety or pain associated with obtaining quality diagnostic images.
