The Cherese Mari Laulhere Imaging Center provides complete imaging (radiology) care to patients staying overnight in the hospital (inpatients), outpatients and the emergency department. Miller Children’s & Women's radiologists and imaging care team are experts at caring for children using the latest imaging technology. Images and laboratory interpretations for physicians are accurate and timely to help facilitate diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Leading Technology to Improve Care
The center utilizes the latest direct capture radiographic technology – allowing the pediatric imaging team to save images directly to the hospitals’ electronic medical records system.
The Imaging Center includes:
- Two dedicated radiography (x-ray) rooms
- Two radiography & fluoroscopy rooms
- Two ultrasound rooms
- Dressing rooms with baby changing tables
- Large radiologists’ reading room
- Conference room for training, education and meetings
Patient and Family Centered Care
Parents often accompany their child during their imaging study, which may require them to leave their other children in the waiting room. As part of Miller Children's & Women's commitment to providing patient and family centered care, a playroom for patients and siblings is located adjacent to the imaging center in the lobby of the new pavilion, and is staffed by certified Child Life Specialists.
