Paediatric MRI Pathway: Best Practice Recommendations

During the first Optimising MRI Pathways for Children Working Group meeting in November 2022, members agreed that a regional best practice pathway would be beneficial in supporting the development of local paediatric MRI pathways.

A small Task & Finish group of multidisciplinary colleagues was facilitated by the ODN Team to draft an initial pathway in May 2023. The draft document was discussed and developed with members of the Working Group during 2023, and the pathway was approved by the group in February 2024.

Following the approval of the document, the ODN team are now supporting local providers to carry out a pathway audit and a patient-level audit in 2024 to identify any areas where support may be required to implement the Best Practice Recommendations within Trusts, and to highlight areas of good practice to share learning between teams.
