This bachelor thesis is an empirical work and deals with the current state of research in peculiarities and challenges when handling children in MRI. Especially children are often scared and overwhelmed by the necessary steps to ensure a successful MRI-examination. During an expert interview, two experienced radiology technologists were asked about the challenges, applied distraction-and-pacification techniques and the influence of radiology technologists on the examination protocol. The results were compared with the researched literature. The biggest challenges for children are the noise of the MRI-bore, the absence of their attachment figures, the placement of an intravenous access and negative experiences with medical personnel. The best rated distraction-and-pacification techniques were audio-visual systems, a child-oriented decoration of the MRI and the examination room as well as the presence of an attachment figure during the examination. The radiology technologists can have a positive impact by offering adequate distraction-and-pacification techniques and the assessment of the dynamics between the attachment figure and the child.
