Our imaging machines are carefully calibrated to provide the highest-quality images using the lowest doses of radiation possible for such services as ultrasound, X-ray, fluoroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) and CT scans.
Surgery at the Tidwell Procedure Center
We offer one of the most technologically advanced and compassionate pediatric surgical experiences in California, as well as common pre-surgery tests, including blood draws, MRIs, X-rays and electrocardiograms. No matter what type of surgery or procedure your child will be receiving, our surgeons, nurses and other pediatric-trained specialists are dedicated to making the surgical experience a success.
CHOC’s Laboratory Services is one of the only dedicated pediatric labs in Southern California. Our 20,000-square-foot lab offers the most compassionate blood draw experience possible, with phlebotomists who have a one-visit, one-poke goal for every patient they see. We pride ourselves on processing tests as quickly and efficiently as possible, and also can provide advanced DNA and microbiology testing.
