What to Expect
Your child may receive isotope injection by either mouth or bladder. Depending on the type of scan, we may also have to insert a small catheter into your child's bladder, so your child may experience some discomfort.
Your child may need to be sedated. Learn more about sedation and how to prepare for your child's medical imaging procedure.
A special camera and computer create images of the area within your child's body that the doctor needs to see.
Most visits take up to three hours since many of these exams require several pictures to be taken at different times.
