An incubator that is compatible with magnetic resonance is safe for examinations of ill newborns and yields excellent MR images, according to a new study. MR imaging is the most desirable imaging test for many newborns because there is no exposure to radiation, according to researchers. However, many sick newborns cannot undergo MR because of concerns for their safety during transport and during the procedure.
