FDA Approval for First Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Device for Neonates

An MRI procedure is a medical imaging procedure that is useful to diagnose as well as treat an array of conditions in the body. It uses strong magnetic fields, radio waves (radiofrequency energy) and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the internal structures of the body. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device called the Embrace Neonatal MRI System that can be used on newborns or neonates. The device is specifically going to be used for neonatal brain and head imaging in neonatal intensive care units (NICU).
