Medical Imaging

Radiation safety

  • The Royal Children’s Hospital is committed to lowering the medical radiation exposure for children. Having the most advanced equipment enables us to perform examinations using the lowest possible radiation dose. Our priority is providing the best quality imaging at the lowest possible radiation dose. The Royal Children’s Hospital works closely with ARPANSA to continue to monitor and reduce the radiation doses used in paediatric imaging across Victoria and Australia.
