Core Summary:

Computed Tomography (CT) at Boston Children's Hospital is dedicated to putting children of all ages at ease, as you'll see from the whimsical décor of our Fenway Park and beach-themed CT rooms in Boston and our skilled and child-centered staff at all locations. We are experts at keeping children comfortable and we encourage parents to be in the room during the scan. In addition, our powerful multidetector scanners minimize exam time, often eliminating the need to sedate your child.

Located at two locations: Boston and Waltham. Should be contacted about scanner technology, image acquisition, etc., but not for actual access to the facility.
