Core Summary:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR or MRI) at Boston Children's Hospital performs pediatric MRIs in a friendly, child-centered environment designed to make your child's experience as pleasant as possible. Our dedicated staff has years of experience imaging children and teens.

Physicians order MRI studies to rule out or diagnose diseases. The technology produces incredibly detailed pictures of your child's organs, bones and tissues without using ionizing radiation (X-rays). Instead, it uses strong magnets, radiofrequency waves and powerful computers to generate 2- and 3-dimensional images of a given organ or body part.

We use protocols and procedures developed specifically for babies and children, which means age-appropriate care for your child and the best possible images for the radiologist.
