Children's Radiology and Imaging

Main Content

Forever and Ever for Kids, with advanced, child-friendly imaging.

Radiology services at Children's of Mississippi, a part of University of Mississippi Medical Center, provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and interventional imaging services for infants, children and young adults cared for at the state’s only dedicated children's hospital. Our radiologists are board certified by the American College of Radiology with certification of additional qualifications in pediatric radiology. 

Children come to the Kathy and Joe Sanderson Tower for many imaging procedures. The first fully pediatric imaging suite in Mississippi, every detail is designed to provide advanced care, and at the same time, to be welcoming and comforting.  
The smaller waiting rooms are configured to be more personal. A patient bathroom/changing room is readily available for privacy and security in each exam room. The suite features advanced imaging technology that also appeals to a child’s sense of play and adventure, including an MRI that looks like a pirate ship and a CT scanner that looks like a giant sand castle.

Some imaging services, including nuclear medicine and interventional radiology exams, are performed in University Hospital. In every location, our highly trained staff works with children and their parents to assure that the special needs of young patients are managed with compassion using the latest innovations in healthcare imaging.
