The Department of Radiology offers specialized diagnostic tests for infants, children, and pregnant women, while engaging in clinical and translational research to enhance the safety and efficacy of imaging capabilities. Services include X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG) scans, positron emission tomography scans, and interventional procedures.

As long-time leaders in the movement toward safer scanning for children, pediatric radiology experts at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have helped establish guidelines for safe imaging practices, and CHOP offers a variety of radiation-free and low-dose options for pediatric imaging. The Department of Radiology is an accredited facility, recognized by the American College of Radiology for its commitment to safe imaging practices in CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, and ultrasound.

The Department of Radiology is comprised of five divisions: Neuroradiology, Fetal Imaging, Interventional Radiology, the Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center, and the Radiology Clinical Research Core.
