Subjective discomfort in children receiving 3 T MRI and experienced adults' perspective on children's tolerability of 7 T: a cross-sectional questionnaire survey.

Chou IJ, Tench CR, Gowland P, Jaspan T, Dineen RA, Evangelou N, Abdel-Fahim R, Whitehouse WP, Constantinescu CS - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: The most common discomfort for 58 adults receiving 7 T MRI was noisiness (43%).Noisiness was the most common discomfort across all ages in 3 and 7 T scanners.Cautious enrolment of children in 7 T MRI study is warranted, but until there is more evidence of how well those aged 12 years or more tolerate 7 T MRI, we would caution against enrolling younger children.

The opinions of experienced adults on whether children ‘would feel ok’ undergoing 7 T MRI. Twenty-six adults who had undergone both 3 and 7 T research MRI reported how, in their opinion, children aged 16–17, 12–15, 10–11 and 8–9 years would feel undergoing 7 T research MRI. Histograms show % reporting the views as ‘yes definitely’ or ‘yes probably’ (black), ‘not sure’ (light grey), and ‘no probably not’ or ‘no definitely not’ (dark grey).

BMJOPEN2014006094F3: The opinions of experienced adults on whether children ‘would feel ok’ undergoing 7 T MRI. Twenty-six adults who had undergone both 3 and 7 T research MRI reported how, in their opinion, children aged 16–17, 12–15, 10–11 and 8–9 years would feel undergoing 7 T research MRI. Histograms show % reporting the views as ‘yes definitely’ or ‘yes probably’ (black), ‘not sure’ (light grey), and ‘no probably not’ or ‘no definitely not’ (dark grey).

Mentions: More than 85% of adults thought children aged 12–17 years would tolerate both 3 and 7 T scans well, but only 35% and 15% thought children aged 10–11 and 8–9 years would (figure 3). The sum of scores for the six discomfort domains was negatively correlated with the sum of the scores of the adult's opinion of the children's probable ability to tolerate 7 T MRI (Spearman's correlation=−0.330, p=0.011).
