Leading the way with greater insight and better care solutions.

Critical Care Demands Critical Data Insights

MR imaging provides critical data insights with greater clarity and precision than ultrasound, allowing for more informed and accurate clinical care decisions. When it comes to critically-ill or premature infants, however, use of this powerful diagnostic tool has been limited due to the potential risks and complexity of transporting these extremely vulnerable patients to Radiology for scanning…until now.

With the patient-focused Embrace® Neonatal MRI System, quality diagnostic imaging can be performed inside the

NICU, while the patient remains safe and comfortable in their care environment. This revolutionary, point of care imaging system

  • enables greater access to critical insights needed to support quicker, confident clinical decision-making for even the most vulnerable NICU patients;
  • mitigates the risks, challenges and time often associated with off-unit patient transport;
  • provides a less stressful experience for patients, parents and staff.
Stop by Booth #401/403 at NLF 2022 to discover how the Embrace® point of care MRI System can provide critical data for quicker, confident clinical decision making, while keeping your patients and care team right where they belong — inside the NICU. (Click above to view larger floor plan.)

Make room for a better care solution.

The uniquely-designed, self-shielded Embrace® Neonatal MRI System fits perfectly in any NICU. Whether part of a new construction project or renovation of an existing space, Embrace® can be installed without the complexity, specification requirements, and investment level associated with traditional MRI installation.

After moderate encephalopathy was detected following emergency Cesarean delivery, an unsedated MRI Scan was completed in the NICU using the Embrace® Neonatal MRISystem on Day of Life 4, after rewarming.

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.

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.
