Magnetic resonance imaging can cause fear and anxiety for children, which depend on the environment and the children’s lack of understanding and communication. It is also very important to lie still for a long time during the examination which can be difficult for a child because of theire difficulties sedation is often used during MRI examinations. The overall purpose of this study was to find other methods that can make it easier for a child during magnetic resonance imaging. A systematic literature review was conducted, which means we followed Goodman’s six steps out of seven. The result was based on 15 audited scientific articles that show three types of methods that can make a magnetic resonance imaging experience easier for a child that was preparation before examination, mock MRI and distraction. Preparation before the examination means that the child can meet a play therapist or read e photo diary. Mock MRI implies that the children go through practice survey in a false MRI machine before the examination and distraction is when the children are simulated with different methods. Preparation before the examination needed to be combined with another method for a positive result. However Mock MRI and distraction gave a stronger effect on the children. The results were mostly positive compared to number of completed examination at children and who had good quality.
