Imaging our youngest patients requires care and compassion, and Wake Radiology physicians and staff members are dedicated to giving children both. We understand that children are often stressed due to illness or injury, and we work to help them relax and feel reassured.
Parents can help prepare their child for their visit to our pediatric imaging center in West Raleigh by showing them what to expect. Photos featured on our website walk them through the check-in area, what they’ll see on their way to the imaging area, and the equipment used to take pictures of their body.
Many of our pediatric imaging exams require preparation to obtain an optimal image or exam. Definitions and preparation instructions for some of the most common exams can be found under pediatric procedures.
We invite parents to call us at 919-781-6707 if they have any questions about these preparations. To help their child feel comfortable, we ask that parents, grandparents or other caregivers bring along their favorite toy, blanket or bottle.
