Introducing The Q

A Pediatric Position Holder

Why we call it The Q

(Por Que Lo LLamomos La Q)

The Q Pediatric Position Holder was created by Dr. Frank Quattromani (a.k.a. “Dr. Q”), a board certified pediatric radiologist.

Most pediatric medical procedures are better performed when the child is motionless

The Q positioner maximizes contact, minimizes movement allowing for sufficient stabilization without unnecessary hands-on

Radiation reduction
(Reduccion De La Radiacion)

The opportunity to reduce radiation exposure is a critical issue within the pediatric radiology community. The Q assists with positioning for diagnostic X-Rays, thus fewer exposures could mean less radiation.

The Q allows the radiologic technologists to remain further from the primary and scatter radiation.
