TOWN CENTER - Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is pleased to announce the grand opening of a pediatric radiology center at its Children's at Town Center location.

The 9,330-square-foot radiology facility offers state-of-the-art equipment featuring low-radiation dose CT, digital X-ray, 3T MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, a laboratory draw station and procedural sedation to the children of Cobb and surrounding counties.

More than 20 pediatric radiologists representing all pediatric radiology subspecialties will be available to care for newborns to teenagers, whether a child needs an X-ray for a fracture or a MRI scan to diagnose a more serious condition. As the largest pediatric radiology program in the nation, Children's pediatric radiologists interpret exams on children more than 240,000 times a year and pediatric sedation physicians have safely administered sedation in an outpatient setting since 2007. The new facility opened to patients in November with extended weekday hours, as well as Saturday hours. Children's at Town Center also currently provides urgent care, sports medicine and specialty care services.
