Kids & X-Rays
Preparing Children for X-Rays from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta For many, the summer is a time for more than just sitting by the pool or attending camp. Many parents choose to schedule medical procedures or elective surgery for their children in the summer months, rather than during the school year. Studies show that children cope better with medical procedures when they are well-prepared ahead of time. Parents are better able to help their children when they are prepared as well.
Below are tips from the Radiology department at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta that offer parents advice and guidance before they arrive for a medical procedure or diagnostic test with their child.
