|Impact of an information leaflet on parental knowledge, anxiety and satisfaction in an Irish paediatric Computed Tomography Department|
This study highlights the need for further research into the role of information in paediatric radiology. A significant difference in anxiety and satisfaction has been demonstrated between the control and study groups, suggesting the information leaflet had a positive impact on parental anxiety and satisfaction.
While there were differences in knowledge between the control and study groups, this difference was not statistically significant. The study highlighted deficiencies in parental knowledge of CT, which may be important in the future as consent in paediatric CT becomes more topical. Other methods of information may also be more effective in improving parental knowledge on CT.
