Aspect Imaging receives CE Mark for dedicated neonatal MRI system
Aspect Imaging has received CE marking for its neonatal-dedicated MRI system, which enables preparation and scanning of newborns without having to transport them from the NICU.
Aspect Imaging developed the Embrace Neonatal MRI System to be placed inside the NICU to reduce the time and risks involved with transporting infants to an external facility in which traditional MRI scanners are typically situated.
It does not require a special safety zone or a radiofrequency-shielded room and, since the system is fully enclosed, medical device implants in close proximity (outside the magnet bore), are not required to be 'MR conditional' or 'MR safe'.
