Working with youth is an especially important area in Radiology not only because improving children's health is paramount but also because it is especially difficult. It requires high vigilance to radiation safety, a special knowledge of pediatric medicine and an environment that conveys comfort despite underlying fears. This painting is of a young girl getting a test that requires her to drink a vanilla shake mixed with barium. The technologist in pink helps her with positioning as the radiologist in purple takes images while the girl drinks.
Exhibited in HeART of HealthCARE virtual group art exhibition 2021.
