Course Overview

Pediatric patients are not adults. Generally, the pediatric patient will always require special attention and can sometimes present a challenge to the radiologic technologist‘s interpersonal skills. If working with a pediatric patient, the technologist will need to fully use his or her technical knowledge. However, the technologist will also need to develop patience and have a deeper understanding of how to use effective communication skills. Although immobilization devices are often necessary, they should be used only after less restrictive measures have been attempted, remembering that the most effective method of avoiding the need to immobilize a patient is communication.
