Physics:Embrace Neonatal MRI System

From HandWiki

Embrace Neonatal MRI System is the first FDA-approved[1] MRI device that can be used for head and brain scans of newborns in the NICU.[2] The Embrace system is designed for newborns between 2.2 and 10 pounds and with a head circumference of up to 15 inches.[3] Produced by Aspect Imaging, the Embrace contains a temperature-controlled incubator and does not require that newborns be transported out of the NICU. In case of emergencies, babies can be removed from the system in less than 30 seconds.[4] The device has been installed in the NICU at Shaare Zedek Hospital in Israel[5] as well as at the NICU at Brigham and Women's in the United States.[6]
