MAGNETOM Flash – Pediatric Imaging

Siemens Healthcare |  2011-11-01

This special issue of the MAGNETOM Flash magazine is devoted to pediatric* MRI. But why this clear focus on our youngest patients? Because we all know that children are not small adults – they suffer from different types of disease than adults, they are much more sensitive to radiation effects (a deciding factor in strengthening the role of MRI in pediatric radiology) and also demonstrate a different physiology as well as behavior. This has a direct impact on the way we image them and on the way we care for them during an examination.
