Diagnostic Tests

Diagnostic Tests

Children are not old enough to fully understand what is happening when they take diagnostic imaging tests and other procedures, so they often need a gentle approach. At Norton Children’s, we design our exam rooms to be calming and pleasant spaces where equipment that might be seen as threatening to children appears less visible. In addition, our kid-friendly staff is specially trained to help make the testing process easier for each child.

It is important to understand the testing services your child needs before you arrive for the procedure. The information below will help answer some of your questions.
