Admin Assistant, Susan Finkle
The section of Pediatric Imaging within the Yale Department of Radiology is composed of dedicated radiologists; all of whom are fellowship trained in the subspecialty of Pediatric Radiology. All are devoted to the care of children, utilizing advanced equipment to assist pediatricians in determining the best way in which to assess a specific problem with attention to minimizing radiation dose. The section is involved in:
- Radiographic interpretation
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
There are approximately 40,000 exams interpreted and performed by the section each year. Imaging takes place at Yale-New Haven Hospital Children's Hospital and at two dedicated off-site pediatric outpatient facilities in New Haven and Norwalk.
Yale Pediatric Imaging is responsible for the education of residents (3-4 months during the course of a residency) in the Yale Department of Radiology as well as from the residency programs of Bridgeport Hospital. We are also involved in clinical research and actively involved in clinico-radiologic conferences. These include a once weekly Tumor Board, and monthly conferences with the Pediatric Surgery, Urology, and Emergency Medicine departments. There is also representation at the once weekly Pediatric Discharge Conference. This is in addition to the daily rounds with the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the Newborn Special Care Unit, and the pediatric inpatient teams.
There is an ACGME accredited Pediatric Radiology Fellowship available each year. This individual receives training in all aspects of Pediatric Radiology in collaboration with the Yale Nuclear Medicine, Neuroradiology, and Interventional Radiology sections.
There are broad clinical research opportunities. Recent and ongoing projects include pediatric adrenal lesions and prenatal abdominal cyst imaging.
