MRI with anesthesia support
At Children’s Southlake, we use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to spot a variety of problems. A safe and non-invasive procedure, MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and a computer to take very clear pictures. Because MRI imaging requires our patient to lie still, we have anesthesiologists on site who have specialized training in the unique needs of children.
Because imaging and anesthesiology in children are not the same in adults, the equipment used at Children’s is calibrated for children and anesthesiologists are specially trained in pediatrics
Nothing will touch or hurt your child as MRI pictures are being taken
The process can be as short as 20 minutes, depending on the amount of scanning
Anesthesia experts are on hand to make the process easier for your child
