X-rays are an important diagnostic tool, but for kids, they can often be scary. If your child is receiving pediatric urgent care and needs an X-ray, watch this video for help explaining the process, so your child feels at ease.
Start by reassuring your child that X-rays are completely painless. Tell him or her what to expect during the scan—the urgent care team can help with this as well. Explain why the scan is necessary and how it will help them get the treatments they need to feel better.
At our four locations in the DFW area, Pediatrics After Hours provides X-ray services for kids and other urgent care needs when your child’s pediatric is not open. Find out more about our after-hours pediatric care by calling 972-355-2273.
