Riley Fluoroscopy Team
Our team specializes in pediatric diagnostic imaging procedures through the production of live x-rays. Most fluoroscopic examinations require the administration of a contrast medium. All fluoroscopic exams are performed by our team of highly skilled radiologic technologists, advanced fluoroscopy techonologists, radiologist assistants and staff radiologists. All fluoroscopy techonologists are registered by the Indiana State Board of Health and the AmericanRegistry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Exams are performed with the most advanced fluoroscopy equipment utilizing low-dose pulsed fluoroscopy and the ALARA principle -- by using doses that are As Low As Reasonably Achievable, we provide an accurate diagnostic exam without reducing quality.
What Our Patients Can Expect
We offer high-quality diagnostic imaging, while providing premier patient care. Our equipment is evaluated and updated routinely to guarantee safe and accurate imaging. Our highly skilled fluoroscopy technologists are provided with ongoing training and continuing education in order to provide our patients the most up-to-date imaging. We understand all children and exams are different, so we provide each patient with customized care to fit the needs of the child and the required imaging. A Child Life Therapist can often assist in reducing fear and anxiety associated with the exam, accomplished through in-depth preparation and discussion prior to beginning the exam. Various Distraction techniques may be utilized during the exam, however, in special cases, sedation may be required. All sedations will be determined by the ordering physician. We take pride in providing safe, diagnostic imaging while accommodating the needs of every family and child. Generally, most fluoroscopy exams last 30 minutes.
