What is a Pediatric Ultrasound?
Ultrasound is one of the most commonly used imaging modalities in children. It is a simple procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the tissues inside a child's body. Unlike some other imaging exams, an Ultrasound uses no radiation and does not require sedation, so it is a safe option for even the youngest patients. Ultrasound may be used for a variety of screening and diagnostic reasons and, often times, may be used in conjunction with other imaging tests to get a more complete picture of what is going on inside of your child's body. At Fairfax Radiology, we do our best to provide all pediatric services in an environment that eases the fears and concerns of both anxious children and their parents.
