Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Radiology Department physicians, nurses and technicians are experienced in providing special care to children. To help make children’s radiology exams a comfortable and positive experience, parents are encouraged to remain with their children during radiology procedures. Pregnant mothers may accompany their children to the procedure room, but may not remain during the exam.
The following procedures are offered:
- CT (Cat Scan)
- Nuclear Medicine
- Interventional Radiology
Some radiology exams require the child to be completely still in order to obtain an accurate study. Some children may need a mild sedative or conscious sedation to insure they remain still for a prolonged procedure. The Department of Anesthesiology’s Board Certified pediatric anesthesiologists provide safe conscious sedation for infants and children.
Plans for a mild sedative or sedation must be made when the radiology procedure is scheduled. Your child’s physician can make all the necessary arrangements.
