The David & Judy Hess Children’s Imaging Center at Renown Children’s Hospital is dedicated to providing the latest technological advances in diagnostic imaging for children.

With northern Nevada’s only Pediatric Radiologist on staff, the Children’s Imaging Center provides comprehensive imaging services tailored to the youngest patients. As the region’s only pediatric imaging facility, we allow families to schedule appointments close to home.

We are proud to participate in Image Gently — a nationwide campaign working to reduce radiation exposure to children.

Why Choose Renown?

With stuffed animals, fun blankets, dedicated and specialized staff all in a kid-friendly environment, the Children’s Imaging Center at the Renown Children’s Hospital puts the comfort of our littlest patients first.

Some imaging techniques can be noisy and scary to children. That’s why Renown Health has a new technology called Cinemavision, designed to help soothe anxious patients and minimize claustrophobia that can disrupt exams.

With this technology, children can enjoy movies and musical entertainment during exams — it’s like watching a 42” TV screen from about 6 feet away. It also reduces noise and allows for two-way communication between our MRI technicians and you and your child, making for a more relaxing environment and quicker, more efficient scan.

By focusing on children's comfort, we're able to provide a high quality service not achievable in a general radiology service in which pediatric radiology is not a specialty.
