The Division of Pediatric Radiology, Loma Linda University Children's Hospital (LLUCH) provides comprehensive pediatric imaging in all imaging modalities for pediatric diagnostic problems for the neonate, infant, juvenile, and adolescent. It serves the extensive pediatric physician referral base of Southern California’s Inland Empire – the large Southern California counties of San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo and Mono that extend eastward from Los Angeles to the western Nevada border. Pediatric radiology is distinguished from adult radiology by technical factors, equipment, protection, immobilization and methods of communication with children and their parents, as well as providing distinctive diagnostic processes for pediatric disease.

The Loma Linda University Children's Hospital Radiology Department offers comprehensive radiology and imaging services for the evaluation of pediatric diseases.
