  • Safety: Some types of imaging studies require the use of radiation. We tailor our equipment and procedures to keep radiation exposure as low as possible to achieve the best high-quality images, using Image Gently® guidelines. We are the pediatric imaging experts of Arkansas. In the USA we are known as one of the leading experts in low dose radiation techniques for children. In some cases, we can avoid radiation altogether by using other imaging methods such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

  • Special care and pediatric specialty expertise: We provide special care so that each patient can have the highest quality images and the most accurate diagnoses. Our radiologists specialize in the imaging of pediatric diseases.
