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. Stats for Kid-Friendly Cartoon Scanners Trending: Older & Average
