MRI Services

Whether your child is scheduled at our outpatient MRI Center or the hospital, you can expect that we will provide imaging and services tailored to meet your child’s needs in a family-friendly environment. The 3T MRI technology offers unprecedented imaging quality that is tailored to children and their unique requirements. Our outpatient center is conveniently located across the street from our hospital and offers the full range of anesthesia-supported imaging, including anesthesia exams, non-anesthesia exams and recovery similar to the hospital imaging center.

The images are read by internationally recognized pediatric-trained Stanford radiologists who work closely with a team of highly skilled nurses, technologists, pediatric anesthesiologists and child development experts. Patients of different acuity levels may be seen at this center, although it could be determined that the patient’s needs are best served by completing the exam in our hospital, depending upon the exam requirements.
