Diagnostic Imaging

We play a key role during the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients.

In the Diagnostic Imaging Area at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, we not only observe the image and interpret it, but also analyse the operation and behaviour of the organs.

We believe that there is a paradigm shift and that, at present, it is important to not only identify or diagnose the disease, but also to perform appropriate follow-up to offer the best possible treatment and results.

We support all pediatric specialties, both for inpatients and outpatients. A pediatric radiologist is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, offering continuous emergency care in all forms of diagnostic imaging. Each year we perform more than 5,000 CT scans and 6,000 MRIs in a space adapted to pediatric patients.

High-tech and humanised equipment

The Diagnostic Imaging Service works with state-of-the-art equipment that allows it to perform complex studies in different specialities (cardiac, oncological, foetal and neonatal). In addition to technology, we work to ensure that patients have a good experience when undergoing medical tests and that procedures can be carried out safely and efficiently.
