In 2004, as a response to meet the growing needs of pediatric imaging services in Broward County, Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, expanded its MRI service to the Nicklaus Children's Dan Marino Outpatient Center, becoming the first MRI service in Broward County exclusively for children. The service, provided on a short-bore General Electric 1.5 Tesla scanner utilizing the same protocols being used at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, are read by our team of pediatric radiologist at NCH via a high speed network connection.
To schedule an appointment for an MRI at the Nicklaus Children's Dan Marino Outpatient Center in Weston, please call (954) 385-6245. MRI services are offered on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In some cases, the examination time is too long to permit the child to try to hold still without sedation. This may be determined in advance or, can be ordered by the radiologist after your child is in the department. Sedation is only given by a sedation-qualified physician and/or nurse.
While the amount and type of sedation is determined upon arrival by your child’s size/weight and age, there are general guidelines for preparation.
