The mission of the pediatric section at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is to provide exceptional pediatric services including radiography, CT, PET/CT, MRI, Nuclear medicine, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, angiography and interventional radiology. Cross sectional imaging encompasses Neuro, Chest, Cardiac, Body, Musculoskeletal and Fetal imaging with subspecialty trained pediatric radiologists.
The Children’s Hospital of Colorado Department of Radiology is full-service with radiography, CT, PET/CT, MRI, Nuclear medicine, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, angiography and interventional radiology. Cross sectional imaging encompasses Neuro, Chest, Cardiac, Body, Musculoskeletal and Fetal imaging with subspecialty trained pediatric radiologists. Annually, approximately 120,000 exams at the main campus, and another 80,000 exams at satellite facilities are performed. Our large multi-specialty reading rooms allow fellows to be involved with all consultations and interesting cases on a daily basis, formulating a good working relationship with referring physicians. Fellows attend and lead daily Neonatal intensive care rounds reviewing all imaging on the most critically ill patients with subspecialty attending physician interaction. Fellows also attend the monthly multidisciplinary vascular malformation clinic.
The Pediatric Section provides two fellowship programs, Pediatric Radiology and Pediatric Neuroradiology. Superlative education is at the forefront for fellows. There is a daily Fellow Case of the Day series where each fellow is shown an unknown case covering MSK, Neuro, GI, GU, Chest and Fetal sections with protocol, imaging and interpretation pearls. Fellows attend a variety of multidisciplinary conferences including monthly Tumor Board (general, neuro and orthopedic oncology), Surgery, Urology, Pulmonary (general and interstitial lung disease), Neuroimaging, Gastrointestinal, Metabolic/Genetics, Stroke, Child Advocacy, Maternal Fetal medicine and ENT. There is a Fellow Core Curriculum lecture series weekly given by pediatric radiology faculty as well as a monthly journal club. Our pediatric radiology program supports the residency training program for University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center Department of Radiology, thus there are ample opportunities to teach residents as well as visiting students and residents from other services.
Research opportunities abound with projects facilitated frequently amongst discussions generated in the reading room and at multidisciplinary conferences. Fellows choose a faculty mentor and work on a research project (either novel or ongoing) with goal of presenting at the annual Society of Pediatric Radiology meeting and manuscript submission. The Advanced Imaging Lab is housed in radiology providing access to state-of-the-art hardware and software applications for research. Our radiology faculty continue to be involved in multiple grant-funded projects using all aspects of imaging.
