MRI goggles for children

Posted:

Children generally wiggle too much for medical MRI scans to get a clear image.

Sedation, with all the risks and side effects, used to be necessary.

But now doctors have found a fun way to keep kids still without giving them medicine.

Television!  That's right, children can watch movies on specially designed goggles during MRIs.

It's nice for doctors because it keeps the children calm and still during the scan.
