Making MRI Experience Fun for Kids


The Doctors office can be a cold scary place for adults, imagine how kids may feel. You can greet your child with lollipops and smiles – but they always know when something is up.

So, how do you make it easier on them, especially when they walk into a room with machines larger than life to their small presence? Even keeping a child still for one second is a challenge. Goggles!

HOLD STILL AND RELAX – Video goggle movies – some places may offer this option. Children enjoy their favorite movies and tend to remain quiet and still so that high quality images with the MRI can be obtained. Next time you are searching for a location to do MRI for your child, ask about the ‘goggles’. This is a plus and your child may not have to go under sedation.
