We've done an MRI on DD using IV Propofol. She was monitored during the MRI. IV sedation worked really fast and she had no problems with it. The recovery was good too. I've heard that some kids come out of other sedation methods thrashing and being really out of it. That wasn't our experience with Propofol. She was back to her normal self in about 40 minutes after recovery.
We've given Versed for another type of noninvasive test. It was awful. Not that she reacted to the drug (she didn't), but it wasn't enough. She was still too conscious and wiggly. That whole experience was actually worse than the MRI with IV sedation because she was traumatized from being aware of the process. With the IV sedation, she had no memory of the procedure so she was much more cooperative in the recovery stage.
