There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Sometimes, MRIs need to be performed under general anesthesia. In these cases, the Division of MRI at Boston Children's Hospital provides a soothing, kid-friendly environment with:
When the anesthesia team members have completed their exam, your child will be transported into the scanner room. If the anesthesiologist determines that you can accompany your child into the scanner room (only one parent would be allowed), you will be allowed to stay in the room until your child is asleep. You will then be escorted to the waiting area.
The radiologist will review the images and create a report of the findings and diagnosis for your referring doctor.
MRI is often used to obtain specific diagnostic information not already provided by other imaging technologies such as computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and X-ray.
Movement will cause the MRI pictures to be blurred. Your child must lie still during the MRI scan. The use of anesthesia will cause your child to go to sleep and remain motionless and comfortable during the scan.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
