The New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital has created an interesting way of helping kids through tough time, a pirate CT scanner.

Being ill is hard enough on its own, never mind if you are a child and not fully understanding why you need to be put through multiple tests. The typical CT scanning machine is very intimidating. It is a round contraption that you go headfirst into. It's no wonder that this would be terrifying if you were a child.

The room that this scanner is in has been decorated in a pirate themed decor, and even the floor has been painted to look like water. The actual machine has a traditional wheel decal around the opening of the scanner.

If this pirate CT scanner eases the fears of one child who is sick, then it's worth every penny.
