The effects of a patient-and family-centered non-sedation/general anesthesia preparation intervention for pediatric magnetic resonance imaging on magnetic resonance image quality, healthcare costs, and operational efficiency
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this quasi-experimental study was to address a gap in the empirical literature by testing theoretically supported relationships between a Patient-and-Family-Centered Non-Sedation/General Anesthesia Preparation (PFC-NP) intervention for non-sedation pediatric MRI and (1) the magnetic resonance image quality, (2) hospital costs, and (3) operational efficiency. Data from all children ages 3 through 17 who underwent MRI from January 2015 through September 2016 in an urban academic medical center in the United States were evaluated. This was a four-group designed study in which there ...
