Imaging at the Point of Need for Your
Most Vulnerable NICU Patients
Quality 1T imaging for confident clinical decision-making, without leaving the NICU
The patient-focused Embrace® Neonatal MRI System provides quality diagnostic imaging when and where its needed, while keeping premature and critically-ill infants safe and comfortable in their care environment. This revolutionary, point of need imaging system
- enables greater access to critical insights so you can make the best care decisions for even your most vulnerable NICU patients;
- mitigates the risks, challenges and time often associated with off-unit patient transport to Radiology for scanning;
- promotes a more simplified and efficient workflow that is less stressful for patients, parents and the care team.

Published January 19, 2023 | Neuropediatrics
Clinical research continues to illustrate the diagnostic value of images obtained on the 1T Embrace Neonatal MR System. This study, published in Neuropediatrics, was designed to evaluate and compare scoring of images obtained on the Embrace, without leaving the NICU, and a conventional MR scanner. The results clearly illustrate substantial interrater agreement. Blank-Altman analysis showed excellent agreement between the two scanners, validating the clinical value of in-NICU scanning with the Embrace.

Research from Mass General Brigham Hospital in Boston, MA, recently published in the Journal of Perinatology, illustrates the value of having the Embrace Neonatal MRI in the NICU to provide information without the stress and risk of moving babies out of the NICU.
WEBINARS ON DEMAND
Neonatal Brain Injury: Neurological Examination and Diagnosis
Diane Wilson, NNP
Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada
With over 30 years of experience in Neonatology and a focus on Neonatal Neurology, Diane has been instrumental in the development of the Neonatal Neurocritical Care Unit (NNCU) at SickKids. In this webinar, Diane reviews the anatomy and physiology of neonatal brain development and the components of a comprehensive neonatal neurological examination, with an overview of the common causes of brain injury in preterm and term infants, including a case presentation with neurological exam findings.
CLINICAL CASE STUDIES
Infant born by spontaneous vaginal delivery was admitted to the NICU and diagnosed with Gram Negative E. coli sepsis. A non-sedated MRI was completed on Day of Life 15, using the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System located inside the NICU.
After severe encephalopathy was noted following delivery, an early MRI scan was completed using the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System on Day of Life 1, while the infant was still undergoing therapeutic hypothermia to determine the extent of brain injury.
