Pediatric Radiology

The Department of Radiology performs over 100,000 radiological examinations annually in all imaging modalities.  The department has 23 faculty and 7 to 10 resident trainees on rotation.  Training is in all aspects of imaging, in both the inpatient setting and the outpatient setting, with satellite centers east of Seattle in Bellevue, south in Federal Way, and a developing clinic north of Seattle in Everett.  Subspecialty pediatric services in the Seattle Children’s Hospital system include oncology and bone marrow transplantation, neonatology, pulmonary medicine, endocrinology, rheumatology, orthopedic surgery, general surgery, transplant surgery, neurology and neurosurgery. 

The care providers at Seattle Children’s Hospital are united by a compelling mission: we provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.  We deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research and serve as the pediatric and adolescent academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country. In 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked Seattle Children’s No. 1 west of the Rocky Mountains – and No. 5 in the country overall – again placing us among the nation’s top children’s hospitals.

Our primary program aims are as follows:

  1.  Provide a robust clinical imaging training environment that offers fellows the tools and knowledge to practice excellent pediatric diagnostic imaging with up-to-date, appropriate procedures.
  2. Offer opportunities to develop future academic pediatric radiologists in the areas of teaching, research, and process quality improvement.
