FDA Approves Neonatal MRI System

Last month, the US FDA approved a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system for neonatal head and brain imaging. The Embrace Neonatal MRI System by Aspect Imaging has a temperature-controlled incubator that is placed directly into the MRI system. The fully enclosed unit does not require a radio frequency shielded room, which means it can be placed directly inside a NICU environment. This removes the challenges of transporting such a fragile population to MRI suites. If urgent access to the baby is needed during the imaging process, the patient can be removed from the system in less than 30 seconds.
