Radiology and Imaging Research

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is home to experts who are advancing childhood illness diagnosis and treatment through research. We are also exploring new possibilities for pediatric radiology and imaging. Our researchers are working toward new methods of capturing and interpreting pediatric imaging studies.

Our Radiology and Imaging Research Interests

Radiologists and scientists at Children’s Hospital answer important questions about pediatric medical imaging through research. Research includes basic science studies in our labs and implementing new technologies and methods.

Our pediatric radiology and imaging research interests include:

  • Biomarkers and their ability to predict the risk of chronic disease
  • Fetal and newborn imaging
  • Imaging evaluation in epilepsy
  • Neuroimaging to improve care for specific brain tumor types
  • Outcomes analysis
  • Pediatric musculoskeletal development
  • Rare syndromes

We also conduct basic science studies. These early-stage research efforts enable us to develop and test new methods before bringing them to patients. Our work in this area includes:

Radiology and Imaging Clinical Trials

Research at Children’s Hospital is improving all aspects of pediatric care, including radiology and imaging. These efforts take place through The Saban Research Institute, one of the country’s largest and most productive pediatric research facilities.

If you are considering a clinical trial for your child, it’s natural to have questions. For more information, read our clinical trials FAQs.
