My Visit To Radiology

  1. 1. My Visit To Radiology Created by the Child Life Department Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics
  2. 2. Sedation Room Before your study in Radiology, you may need to come to the Sedation Room. You may need a special medicine that helps the Radiologist to see your pictures better (contrast). Or you may need a special medicine that makes you feel sleepy and helps you hold still for your pictures. In this room, you will meet a nurse that needs to check how you are feeling. The nurse may listen to your heart, check how you are breathing, measure how big you are, and check your temperature. During this time, the nurse may ask the adults who came with you some questions about your visit here today.
  3. 3. CT Scan A CT scan is a way of taking pictures of the inside of your body. You lay on a bed that slowly moves into a big circle where a camera can take pictures of your body. During these pictures your most important jobs are to hold VERY still and be VERY quiet. Remember, the camera NEVER touches you. You may hear beep or buzz sounds while the camera is working.
  4. 4. Look, you can see through the circle of the CT scanner from both sides.
  5. 5. Ultrasound Ultrasound uses sound waves to see inside the body. Your technologist needs to take pictures of the inside of your body with a rolling wand that will glide on your skin with the help of clear lotion. The wand can tell how the inside of your body is shaped and makes a picture on the TV monitor. The lights may be turned down so your technologist can see the picture better. The lotion is wiped off when the study is done.
  6. 6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI Scan) An MRI scanner is a way of taking pictures of the inside of your body. You lay on a bed that slides slowly into a big circle where a camera can take special pictures of your body. During these pictures your most important jobs are to hold VERY still and be VERY quiet. Remember, the camera NEVER touches you. This is camera is very loud. Some kids say it sounds like a loud knocking noise. You may need a special medicine called contrast that helps the Radiologist to see your pictures better.
  7. 7. Fluoroscopy A Fluoroscopy study is a way of taking pictures of the inside of your body. The camera is placed over a part of your body while you lay on the bed, but the camera never touches you. You’ll need to have a special medicine called contrast that helps the Radiologist to see your pictures. The Radiologist will be in the room during your study. During these pictures your most important job is to hold VERY still.
  8. 8. X-Ray X-Ray is a way of taking a picture of the inside of your body. While you sit or lay on the bed, the technologist will move the camera over the part of your body we need in the pictures. Some X-rays can be taken while you are standing up. You may hear a beep sound when the picture is taken.
  9. 9. Nuclear Medicine A Nuclear Medicine Scan is a way of taking pictures of the inside of your body. The camera takes pictures of your body while you lay on a bed. You are given a special medicine that helps the technician see your pictures better. The camera takes pictures every few moments so you will need to hold still as best you can. You can choose a movie to watch during the study.
  10. 10. Special Procedures Room If you have a special procedure, you will go to the Special Procedures Room. It is called the Special Procedures Room because it has more than one machine to help the doctors or technologists see the inside of your body. The camera you see over the bed takes pictures of a certain part of your body while you lay on the bed. Don’t worry, the camera never touches you. The machine on the cart to the side of the bed is called an Ultrasound machine. It also helps the doctors or technologists to see the inside of your body. Sometimes both the Ultrasound machine and the camera are used for procedures, and sometimes only one is needed.
