If your child is having the procedure as an outpatient at Cincinnati Children's, we will tell you where to register your child, depending on whether your child is sedated or given general anesthesia.
If your child is getting general anesthesia, he / she will go to the Interventional Radiology area on a stretcher or movable bed. You may walk with your child to this area and then say good-bye before the procedure. The interventional radiology nurse will take care of your child during the procedure.
When you leave your child for the test, go to the Surgery Waiting Room. The nurses or technologists will give you directions. Sign in with the volunteer at the entrance, and sign out if you leave this area.
If you leave the Same Day Surgery area, please return within one hour of the time you arrived. The Surgery Waiting Room is where the doctor will talk to you after the test.
