Q.

MRI SCAN

My baby of 9 months needs to go for a MRI Scan, because his scull is deformed.
How do they do this?
Do they put a baby under? I don't think that my son will lie still for this to be done.

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

They will prescribe a very mild sedative. He will be asleep when the procedure is done-it is completely painless.
