There is no doubt that children who are too young to understand instructions, children who are frightened, and children who cry constantly for their parents are very difficult to radiograph.

Many of these devices are available commercially, but most can be manufactured in any hospital engineering department. The devices discussed here are not the only ones available, but they are the ones found most useful at The Hospital for Sick Children.
