The children with CP has been shown different drug responses from the normal population of children and it may related with a various oral medications such as baclofen, tizanidine, diazepam, dantrolene, or anticonvulsant drugs.

The aim of this study is to establish the optimal induction dose of propofol for deep sedation to start MRI for < 30 min in children with CP.
