Safety First: Recognizing and Managing the Risks to Child Participants in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Research
Schmidt, Matthias H.
Accountability in Research 2009 May-August; 16(3-4): 153-173
Specialized and up-to-date knowledge is required to identify and manage the risks associated with advanced biomedical research. Additional complexities need to be considered when the research involves infants or young children. In this article, we focus on recent information about the physical risks of pediatric magnetic resonance imaging research and highlight information gaps. With an eye to assisting institutional review boards and researchers, we consider strategies for the management of these risks and formulate key questions aimed at exposing hidden hazards. Institutional review boards should ask these questions, and researchers should bear them in mind as they develop research protocols.
