Precise recordings from the body

Thanks to the magnet resonance imaging, it is possible examine the whole human body. Soft parts such as the brain and the internal organs are particularly easy to identify on an MRI picture.

The exact examination of the brain is particularly important for newborn and premature babies. Their brains are not yet fully developed and are very sensitive and they are at high risk of suffering from a brain hemorrhage. The lungs and the hearts of premature babies are also often not yet optimally developed.

Thanks to nomag®IC advanced, exact MRI-diagnostics can be carried out. Possible brain damage or illnesses of the internal organs can be quickly recognized and the optimal therapy can be directly put in place.
