Pediatric Radiology

Comfort and Stability in Pediatric Radiology

Everyone knows – kids aren’t just little adults.

This especially holds true in the field of radiology, where pediatric exams pose various challenges making it difficult to successfully perform “non-routine examinations” with non-compliant children, given the fact that coils and holders are mostly available in adult-sizes only. Therefore, a high degree of creativity is often needed in patient positioning processes.
