All of our locations offer most exams however some complex exams are done at only our Tenaya or Maryland Parkway Locations only. These two locations specialize in pediatric care and have nurses on site at all times.
Yes, but we do have some guidelines. For pediatric patients SDMI offers oral Valium sedation. Children must weigh a minimum of 50 pounds and be over 5 years old to be sedated. Children between the ages of 5-12 needing sedation must be scheduled at our Maryland Parkway or Tenaya facilities where there is a nurse on duty. Children over 13 can be scheduled at any location. Any child under 18 with medical or developmental issues requiring Valium sedation will first need to be assessed by a Radiologist. Any child exhibiting respiratory compromise or illness can not be sedated.
