Kids can play an active role in their own health and safety.
To help teach them how to do this, Dr. Scheinfeld has created an interactive radiology teaching kit which consists of a variety of images of bones, as well as orthopantograms of teeth and ultrasound images of fetuses, allowing doctors to speak about various disciplines within healthcare and educate children about radiology as well as broader topics, such as oral hygiene.
Dr. Scheinfeld uses the kit to teach kids about the human body, provide important safety advice and also encourage children not to fear the hospital environment. A video of Dr. Scheinfeld teaching kids with the kit can be found here.
Meir Scheinfeld, MD, PhD, Attending Physician, Division Head of Emergency Radiology, Department of Radiology at Montefiore Medical Center can discuss the role of radiology in healthcare and the importance of teaching children about their health from an early age.
