Prisma Health Pediatric MRI

Prisma Health pediatric MRI suite with three scan rooms is a new addition to Prisma’s Greenville location. One scan room, specific holding rooms, and a waiting area are dedicated to the children’s hospital patients. These spaces include extra room for parents and caregivers accompanying pediatric patients. The pediatric areas feature whimsical graphics depicting the children’s hospital mascot’s treasure hunt, culminating in the scan room. This story helps address the emotional needs of young patients, created by the Child Life team.

Meet Vivi: A Canine Companion Supporting Pediatric MRI Experiences

Also featured is Vivi, a Goldendoodle from The Canine F.E.T.C.H. (Friends Encouraging Therapeutic Coping and Healing) Unit. Vivi works in the radiology department with MRI patients and the pediatric sedation team. Vivi and her handler, a Child Life Specialist, educate children and their families about hospital procedures, provide positive distractions during painful processes like IV starts and blood draws, and offer comfort during challenging procedures and tests.

Prisma Health Pediatric MRI scan and control rooms are in an addition above the existing hospital kitchen. The team fully renovated part of the radiology department to house the MRI support spaces. This project also upgraded equipment to new 1.5T and 3.0T MR systems.
