MRI-Compatible Incubator Allows High-Quality Neonatal Imaging

Laurie Barclay; Pediatrics. 2004;113:e150-e152


A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-compatible incubator affords safe and good- to excellent-quality MRI in neonates, according to the results of a study published in the February issue of Pediatrics. “MRI of the neonate is important clinically, because this group of patients often has complex and multiple problems due to prematurity and developmental abnormalities,” write Elspeth H. Whitby, FFDRCSI, from the University of Sheffield, and colleagues. “MRI usually involves moving neonates away from their controlled environment to the scanner.” (113:e150-e152)
