Tom wasn’t wearing his helmet when he fell off his bike and hit his head. He had to go to the hospital. The doctor tells Tom he is going to have a test called an MRI, like an x-ray, he explains. The MRI takes pictures of the body to see what’s going on inside. Tom is afraid, but the doctor tells him to pretend he’s an astronaut about to take off on an important mission to Mars.
Tom’s MRI Space Adventure helps childen have a positive experience by explaining the MRI procedure in child-friendly language.
Tom’s MRI Space Adventure
Great story! This will alleviate every child’s (and adult’s) fear of an MRI. Required reading for all junior astronauts before an MRI.

Fabulous story, an imaginative way to introduce children and alleviate the anxiety associated with what is becoming an all too frequent diagnostic procedure.
