BACKGROUND Children undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) under sedation are at risk of hypo- or hyperthermia. The effect of brain MRI at differing magnetic field strengths on body core temperature in sedated infants and young children has not been reported previously. METHODS Two groups of 38 infants and children (aged 1 month to 6 yr 5 months) underwent brain MRI for different indications related to cerebral diseases, at 1.5 Tesla (T) and 3 T MRI units, respectively. All patients… CONTINUE READING
