Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The use of behavioral techniques with radiologic procedures has received surprisingly little attention in the behavioral literature. The current paper describes the successful use of systematic desensitization to enable a woman to complete a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Suggestions for when behavior therapy may be useful to radiologists are also given.
