The advanced practice of pediatric medicine at C.S. Mott Children’s hospital and a diverse patient population provide ample opportunity for research into any facet of of pediatric imaging. Members of the Section of Pediatric Radiology are actively involved in research in pediatric imaging. Areas of interest include cardiac imaging, abdominal imaging and musculoskeletal imaging and ultrasound.

Members of the Section of Pediatric Radiology have collaborated with members of many other clinical pediatric disciplines in research endeavors. Researchers involved in projects involving pediatric imaging are encouraged to contact the section director, Peter J. Strouse, M.D., or another member of the section. Our section members will contribute expertise in pediatric imaging, facilitating collaborative projects with an imaging component.

Faculty Interests

The Section of Pediatric Radiology is interested in any research involving the use of imaging in children, including radiography, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT and MRI. We are particularly interested in projects that evaluate the diagnostic capability of various imaging modalities in children and in projects which look to develop improved algorithms for imaging of pediatric disease (i.e., methods which minimize radiation dose or optimize the use of modalities such as ultrasound or MR, which do not involve ionizing radiation).

Particular interests of individual section members include abdominal imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, cardiac imaging and ultrasound. For further information, please refer to our faculty member pages.

Related Resources and Grants

Members of the Section of Pediatric Radiology have been valuable contributors to many interdisciplinary funded research projects within C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and the University of Michigan Health System. The Section of Pediatric Radiology can be of assistance to any research group seeking to perform a research study with involvement of a component in pediatric imaging. Members of the Section of Pediatric Radiology and other members of the Department of Radiology can assist in planning the project, optimizing imaging logistics, seeking funding and preparing grant applications. Active participation by pediatric radiologists will assure optimization of image acquisition and interpretation.
