Children are not small adults – they suffer from different types of disease than adults, they demonstrate a different physiology as well as behaviour. This has a direct impact on the way we image them. To support the care of your youngest patients renowned experts in pediatric MR imaging share their optimized protocols.

MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants less than two years of age. The responsible physician must evaluate the benefits of the MR examination compared to those of other imaging procedures.
