The likelihood of sedation for an MRI exam in a patient under 8 years is high. Disadvantages of sedation usage include direct complications, suspected long-term effects, and higher costs. Sedation reduction techniques include the use of an MRI simulator, accelerated MRI scans, abbreviated protocols, and swaddle and sleep techniques. We evaluated the clinical image quality and cost effectiveness associated with an MRI simulator training program. Read More

While a definitive conclusion regarding the optimal diagnostic strategy for midgut volvulus remains elusive, value can also be derived from cost. The purpose is to quantify and compare the monetary and time costs, from a provider perspective of imaging with Upper GI (UGI) versus Ultrasound (US) of children with suspected midgut volvulus.
