Your support makes it possible for CHKD to invest in the medical technology that helps us diagnose childhood diseases, provide complicated life-saving surgeries and treatments, and maintain a state-of-the-art communication and security system for the protection and safety of our patients and their families.

Advanced medical technology gives doctors access to innovative diagnostic and surgical equipment and offers advantages to the children being treated in our health system.

For example, CHKD's new 3 Tesla MRI scanner can produce enhanced images of extremely small structures and detailed images of soft tissue damage such as lesions in the cartilage. It can assist in diagnosing some spine injuries and produce images of brain structures to help diagnose conditions such as multiple sclerosis.

Technological innovations are also a critical part of everyday life for many children. Many of our patients require ventilators to breathe, incubators to grow or motorized wheelchairs to move from place to place. Your support offers young patients access to technologies that enhance their ability to survive and thrive.
