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.
- CT imaging

We adhere to the Image Gently® and As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) standards in all areas of the department where radiation-producing machines are used to limit radiation exposure while still producing high-quality images to help diagnose your child’s disorder. Should sedation or anesthesia be required for your child’s examination, we work with our sedation/anesthesia imaging team to make the experience for you and your child as pleasant and safe as possible.
