The MRI team at Jacksonville, Florida based Wolfson Children’s Hospital have a new campaign to make MRI's kid friendly. They have coined the term, ‘MR-I-Am Ready!’, which aims to educate and calm children’s anxieties as they go through the MRI machine.
Not only does this initiative aim to reduce kid’s anxiety as they go through the scanner, but also to reduce the need for sedation. Sedation is an extra expense, and does not necessarily reduce the the anxiety within children. One parent recalls how scared her child was as going under.
At Sound Imaging, we are happy to see how more and more education around MRI machines is expanding, even to little ones. We also do our part to let children feel safe within the MRI with our line of patient comfort MRI accessories. One such device, the MRI Visors, allows patients to have a movie-like experience within the machine, and is perfect for all ages.
