The Imaging Center at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center combines the most advanced pediatric diagnostic imaging in the region with a focus on comfort for children.
Patients can benefit from the latest and safest imaging technology with two new 128-slice CT scanners that offer the lowest-dose of radiation possible for children through special dose reduction software. The new technology allows for more advanced imaging capabilities than ever with a continued focus on comfort and safety. Children can watch their favorite movie on a flat-panel screen in the CT suite and even choose what color they want the room to be.
New interactive MRI suites let kids choose their favorite color theme using an iPad. They can watch a DVD movie or show before the MRI, and actually continue watching that same video during the MRI procedure. Depending on the scan being done, they can watch on a flat-screen in the ceiling above the MRI or on special pair of goggles made just for kids.
