dc.description.abstract On its own magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) poses little risk to children, but sedation or general anaesthesia used to facilitate the examination increases the risk of adverse events. Conscious sedation may guarantee adult patient compliance in difficult cases; however a deeper level of sedation is required for children aged 6 months - 7 years. Children older than this often comply with instructions to remain still. Infants may go to sleep with a feed.
