August 2012 – We all know that pediatrics is not adult medicine for small people. Children’s diseases, diagnostic processes, management issues, and treatments are vastly different from those for adults. The same is true for medical imaging. Medical imaging of children is not just adult imaging with small equipment.
Dr. Zahir Momin is the new head of Quantum Radiology’s pediatric imaging program. He recently finished a one-year pediatric radiology fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Prior to that, he completed a radiology residency and a fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging at Emory. Dr. Momin is currently assisting in the planning of WellStar’s Pediatric Diagnostic Center, which will feature dedicated children’s imaging services in a kid-friendly environment.
