Eliminating Waste and Improving Safety in the NICU MRI Process

November 24th at 2:00pm EDT

Featured Speaker: Dr. Katherine Coughlin, Attending Neonatologist, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women and Newborns, San Diego, CA

Transporting critically-ill babies to the Radiology department for MRI testing is a time-consuming, challenging and often risky process that can be stressful for both the baby and the care team. In this webinar, Dr. Coughlin discusses the challenges and risks associated with traditional off-unit scanning.

A well-respected and recognized leader in neuroscience research and academic activities, including mentorship, Dr. Inder will serve as Chair of the inaugural Scientific Advisory Board. She is a dual boarded child neurologist and neonatologist who undertakes clinical and translational research in the nature and timing of brain injury and alterations in brain development using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. Under her leadership, her laboratory aims to conduct clinical investigations of treatments and preventive strategies that may improve outcomes in high risk infants. They strive to have a means of accurate, early diagnosis of brain injury or altered brand development. Dr. Inder has published over 200 peer-reviewed scientific papers.

Global Brain Injury scores in Preterm Infants: Validation of a 1.0T Neonatal MRI vs. Conventional 1.5T MRI

September 22nd at 2:00pm EDT

Featured Speaker: Dr. Alona Bin-Nun, NICU Director, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) plays a critical role for assessing neonatal brain injuries. In many hospitals, MRI is located far away from the NICU and moving critically ill neonates to an off-unit scan imposes many safety risks associated with offsite transport. We are excited to welcome Dr. Alona Bin-Nun, NICU Medical Director, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, as our next featured speaker, who brings first-hand experience on the immediate benefits in-NICU MRI brings to the NICU staff, parents and most importantly, the vulnerable newborn in need of an MRI scan. During this 30-minute webinar, learn how the Embrace® Neonatal MRI compares to conventional 1.5T systems, delivering reliable clinical data needed to score brain abnormalities in premature infants at term-equivalent age.

Design Considerations for Innovative MRI

August 18th at 2:00pm EDT

Featured Speaker: Tobias Gilk, Senior Vice President of RADIOLOGY-
Planning

Conventional MRI equipment requires unique siting and safety design requirements to protect the safety of patients, medical personnel, and building occupants in close proximity to an MRI. In this 30-minute webinar, we are excited to welcome Tobias Gilk, Senior Vice President of RADIOLOGY-Planning, as our featured speaker to give an architectural perspective on how the Embrace® Neonatal MRI system substantially reduces or completely eliminates the environmental risks associated with standard planning, design and construction requirements needed for traditional MRI scanners.

Mitigating Infection Risk in the NICU

July 21st at 2:00pm EDT

Featured Speaker: Dr. Patricia G. Bondurant, Co-founder and Chief
Transformation and Quality Officer of TransForm Healthcare
Consulting, LLC

Despite the vigilance required to avoid healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs), NICUs are often forced to breach safety protocols and accept unnecessary risks when transporting their most fragile patients to an off-unit MRI suite. We were pleased to have Dr. Patricia Bondurant share her insights and expertise on how the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System helps mitigate these infection risks and improve outcomes by keeping vulnerable babies safe for scanning inside the NICU.
