Ultrasound is performed on a state-of-the-art Philips ultrasound system that provides Doppler, 3-D, Sono CT, panoramic, contrast compatible and high-resolution, real-time imaging capabilities.

“In addition to state-of-the-art equipment, the department will be staffed by experienced, highly skilled and registered pediatric technologists utilizing the same protocols being used at Miami Children's Hospital,” explained Albert Rego, Administrative Director of the Miami Children's Dan Marino Center. “The ultrasound images will be interpreted by our team of specially trained pediatric radiologists at Miami Children's Hospital via a high speed network connection.”

Miami Children's Hospital’s ultrasound department is accredited by the American College of Radiology. A number of the hospital’s radiologists are nationally recognized for their achievements in clinical medicine and research.
