Nicklaus Children's Department of Radiology


The Department of Radiology at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, is an exclusive pediatric radiology facility. We have been imaging children since 1950; constantly providing state-of-the art equipment and staff that is trained and dedicated to the care of infants and children. The department is staffed by specialists in all radiology fields. These experts work together with clinical sub-specialists and attending physicians to support the care of children.

The department's commitment to excellence has led to its establishment as a regional leader for pediatric radiology, serving children throughout Florida as well as the Caribbean, Central America and South America.

The NCH Radiology Department is proud to be accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound (US), Nuclear Medicine, PET and Computed Tomography (CT) services. Compliance with all requirements and receipt of accreditation is an outstanding achievement and speaks well of the dedication, skill and determination of the Radiology Department.

The Department performed in excess of 140,000 cases last year.
