Your child will be assessed and prepared before the procedure. You will be asked questions about your child's medical history, allergies, current medications, previous sedation or anesthesia experience and current health status. Your child's airway, heart and lungs will be examined carefully.
Our goal is for your child to feel safe and happy in our environment. A member of the nursing or child life department will explain, in a child-friendly manner, what the day will be like.
Most radiological procedures are not painful. If an IV is required for sedation or contrast administration, minimal pain may occur.
