pediatric mriMRI scanning may help children suffering from phenylkentonuria, which affects one in ten thousand children in the US. That means up to 8,000 children a year suffer from this disorder. This genetic condition affects proteins in the blood which can lead to seizures, delayed development, behavioral problems, and psychiatric disorders among other debilitating symptoms.

With the use of MRI technology, researchers at the University of Missouri are better understanding the characteristics of phenylkentonuria. Further research will detect this condition earlier, and therefore start treatment as soon as possible. Treatment for phenylkentonuria includes diet restriction, which limits the amount of proteins allowed into the body, thus lowering the effects of symptoms. MRI scanning will allow for more research and better understanding before symptoms emerge. With better understanding, there is better treatment. 

MRI scanning can be a lengthy and isolating process for adults, and especially so for children. During MRI scanning, it is crucial to remain still to create the best imaging possible. However, this is easier said than done. This environment can be scary for children, with its small enclosed space, its lack of stimulation, and the loud noises of the magnets working their magic. However, for those who live with phenylkentonuria, MRI scanning is a must in order to ensure a healthy, happy life. Fortunately, there are MRI accessories that can make this process much easier for young patients. One such product is the MRI Stereo. The MRI Stereo allows music to play in the MRI Suite, so children can listen to popular musicians or a soothing song to relax.

MRI scanning saves lives, but this is not always an easy or affordable process. For those suffering from phenylkentonuria, MRI scanning is a necessity. Here at Sound Imaging, we help to make the MRI Suite comfortable and widely available for those who need the resources of MRI scanning.
