Pediatric imaging is unique in that medical professionals will most likely be discussing the results of their exams with the parents, oftentimes not requiring patient input. As such, it’s vitally important that all parties involved are on the same page to ensure safe, effective patient care. Children often require additional planning and procedures, sometimes including tasks such as sedation. Clearly, your child is important to you, and our experts understand completely. Our care plan includes clear communication protocols to ensure that you are always kept in the loop on procedures and treatments at our facility. Our focus on professional care helps to lower costs and raise satisfaction rates, helping everyone involved!
Following Instructions And Cooperating
Whereas adults have the mental culpability to understand their situation, young children do not have the same luxury. From infants to school-agers, children present a variety of unique logistical challenges for radiologists everywhere. Being able to remain quiet, hold still, or hold your breath can prove to be a major challenge for kids. Our practice has the experience and skill to offer effective tactics to help maintain order long enough to gain accurate results. If the child moves and spoils the results, further imaging and radiation will be required. North Pittsburgh Imaging Specialists is proud to offer effective care to minimize both the overall costs and health risks.
In rare cases where medical imaging is required for young children, numerous considerations need to be taken care of to optimize the outcome.
