Imaging Technologies
  • Radiography and x-rays: These use electromagnetic radiation to view the body’s internal structure by creating images of the inside of the body. The images are usually in shades of black and white.
  • Ultrasound: This uses high-frequency waves to create images of the inside of the body. During the procedure, the image is displayed on a monitor.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): This method uses radio waves and a magnetic field to create images of tissue and organs inside your body.
  • Computerized Tomography (CT or CAT scan): This imaging technique examines inside the body and displays the anatomical details of blood vessels very clearly. A contrast agent may be used for clearer images.
  • Nuclear Imaging (SPECT): It provides high-resolution images that can be represented as cross-sectional slices in three dimensions.
  • Positron emission technology (PET/CT) Scan: This combines CT and PET in one machine to produce three dimension images that are very clear.

Before the procedure
  • If the child is old enough to understand you can explain to them why the test is being done to reduce their anxiety.
  • You can practice the positions they will be in during the procedure and tell them how the test will feel and describe the equipment that will be used.
  • You can suggest ways of staying calm such as counting and breathing deeply.

After the procedure
  • After the child has completed the tests your doctor will discuss with you the results and diagnosis and make an appropriate treatment plan.
