Pediatric Radiology Research Group
The group was founded in January 2015.
Pediatric radiology is a wide and diverse branch of the specialty of Radiology, and includes diagnostic and interventional examinations of the whole body of children and adolescents, aged 0-18 years. Pediatric radiology is a multimodality specialty where ultrasonography, fluoroscopy, radiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as nuclear medicine techniques are used. Technical advances in ultrasonography, CT, and MRI is crucial in pediatric diagnostics especially in the cardiac- and oncology imaging. Children constitute a vast and important part of the patients at Oslo University Hospital.
The group has been awarded two HSØ PhD-grants over the last five years. In addition, one PhD has been obtained from KRN and external grants.
