My 7 year old son required an MRI of his head this morning. He had been nervous for sometime and as the day drew close I had doubts as to whether we would get a complete scan and worried he may get so anxious that scanning wouldn't be possible.
Today the staff were fantastic, explaining what was going to happen and checking with him after each group of scans that he was ok. I was allowed to go in with him to talk to him and reassure him.
The result of the understanding and patience from the staff was a quiet and still little boy for the whole scan and no need to waste resources on sedation or even a general anaesthetic and a repeat scan.
Brilliant job by all concerned
