Imaging procedures can be daunting for a child. At Spectrum, our trained staff strive to ensure a supported and comfortable environment for every imaging procedure performed.
Spectrum Medical Imaging has a strong Paediatric team, with experienced paediatric radiologists available for consultation across our practices.
Spectrum offers the silent scan for children in our Randwick – Silver Street rooms
Our radiologists have subspecialist fellowship training in diagnostic & interventional neuroradiology, musculoskeletal radiology, body CT and MRI (including chest, gastrointestinal and oncology imaging), women’s imaging, paediatrics, and cardiac imaging (CT and MRI).
Our commitment to both Prince of Wales, Sydney Children’s Hospital and Liverpool hospital and to community practices provides a unique continuity of imaging care for your patients through our strong relationships with the hospital medical specialists.
Our paediatric radiologists are Dr Chee Chung Hiew and Dr Jeanette Taylor. Both Drs Hiew and Taylor are fellowship trained paediatric radiologists and both currently hold appointments at The Sydney Children’s Hospital, The Royal Hospital for Women Randwick and The Prince of Wales Hospital. Our radiologists also offer advanced paediatric subspecialty reporting (Dr Sarah Morris, Paediatric Musculoskeletal Imaging; Dr Daniel Moses, Paediatric Abdominal MR and Cardiac CT and MR; Dr Jason Wenderoth, Paediatric Neurovascular).
Spectrum Medical Imaging has a dedicated Paediatric Imaging day at SPECTRUM MEDICAL IMAGING BONDI JUNCTION (Westfield Tower 1, Suite 1503, Level 15, 520 Oxford Street) every Friday.

All routine non-urgent referrals can be booked on the dedicated days ensuring specialist interpretation and reporting for your patients.
Spectrum Paediatric Imaging will provide specialised ultrasound services. The recent installation of a state of the art low dose CT will ensure optimal imaging and diagnosis while maintaining minimal radiation exposure for your patients.
Spectrum Medical Imaging will continue to provide daily paediatric imaging services for all urgent referrals and our advanced PACS system will allow specialised reporting of examinations for your paediatric patients by our fellowship trained paediatric radiologists.
Spectrum Medical Imaging also continues to offer specialised Paediatric MRI services at our Randwick and Liverpool practices and offer bulk billed indications if they meet the certain criteria. Our most advanced 3T MRI with Silent scan capability is ideally suited for children.
With a standard MRI exam, the patient endures noises of around 108 dB, comparable to that of a jack hammer. This can lead to patient anxiety and ultimately lead to a difficult and unpleasant experience for the patient.
With this new technology, the noise level can been reduced to around 77 dB, similar to ambient background noise. The improvements to patient comfort are obvious, particularly for young children.
Excellent image quality is achieved but with the major benefit of acoustic noise reduction and improved patient comfort.
