Children's provides this general preparation information to help you and your child prepare for a radiology procedure. In addition, you can find more specific information based on the procedure.
How should I prepare my child?
Studies show that children cope better with medical procedures when they are well prepared ahead of time. Parents are better able to help their children when they are better prepared as well.
Please bring your child's medication to the appointment. You will be asked to provide a list of your child's medications and information regarding your child's injury or illness prior to the exam. This information helps us to better care for your child.
If possible, make arrangements in advance for the care of any brothers or sisters on the day of the exam. You will want to focus on caring for the child who is having the exam.
