Dr. Karen M Ayotte has the following 3 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
- Pediatric Radiology
Pediatric radiologists specialize in using x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds to help provide the most accurate diagnosis to your child as possible. After they receive the image results, they work with your family physician or other specialist to give him or her a closer look at broken bones from an accident or recognize tumors, bleeding and infections that might be causing certain symptoms.
They focus on children as young as newborns and as old as teenagers and they have to be well-versed in the growth and development of children's bodies. This allows them to properly identify abnormalities at various ages and to work with your doctor on recommending the best treatment options.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.<br>The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

More about Dr. Karen M Ayotte
After graduating from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in 1999, I chose a career in Diagnostic Radiology. Due to my particular interest in the pediatric population I chose to sub specialize in Pediatric Radiology. I am board certified in Diagnostic Radiology with an additional Certificate of Added Qualification in Pediatric Radiology. While serving as an active duty Air Force physician, I treated both adults and children. Throughout my military service I served as an expert witness in the field of pediatric radiology in cases of alleged child maltreatment. As a member of the Society of Pediatric Radiology, I am dedicated to providing cutting edge imaging to children while also minimizing radiation exposure. As a parent, I know that your children are your greatest treasure. When a child is ill, it is stressful on the entire family. I strive every day to help minimize that anxiety and help your child's physician reach an accurate diagnostic and therapeutic plan.
