Pediatric1 protocols

Children are not small adults – they suffer from different types of disease than adults, they demonstrate a different physiology as well as behaviour. This has a direct impact on the way we image them. To support the care of your youngest patients renowned experts in pediatric MR imaging share their optimized protocols.
