Pediatric Trauma Imaging

Answer: Thank you for contacting our Pediatric Imaging Ask an Expert forum. The answer is—teleradiology! Most x-rays and other imaging results will be looked at by the radiologist on a computer screen rather than on x-ray film, as it was done just a few years ago. That gives the radiologist the ability to interpret these high-quality digital images on specially designed computer software from any distance. Our specialized UT radiologists provide this service to several facilities outside the Texas Medical Center. To learn about Houston area facilities which are served by the UT Radiologists, please call 713-704-6500 for Children’s Memorial Hermann, or 713-526-4243 for LBJ Hospital scheduling.
