Siemens Offers Incubator System as Add-on for MRI

January 20, 2012 – Siemens Healthcare has joined with LMT Lammers Medical Technology GmbH to exclusively offer the nomag IC – LMT’s MR Diagnostics Incubator System for the transport of newborns and premature babies – as an add-on to Siemens’ 1.5T and 3.0T magnetic resonance (MR) systems, including the Magnetom Aera and Skyra systems.

The nomag IC enables newborns and premature babies to be examined after birth with magnetic resonance imaging via optimal, noninvasive diagnostics. The incubator facilitates safe, convenient transport from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to the MRI department with an MR-conditional trolley, MR-conditional gas and power supply and attendant conditional accessories.

The nomag IC incubation system optimizes thermoregulation during the MR examination; reduces the need for sedation and eliminates the need for general anesthesia; and facilitates access to diagnostic imaging that is free of ionizing radiation. The nomag IC also reduces examination time and enables more examinations due to the improved workflow.

The nomag IC is compatible with Siemens’ Magnetom Tim Symphony, Magnetom Avanto, Magnetom Espree and Magnetom Area 1.5T systems as well as Siemens’ Magnetom Trio with Tim, Magnetom Verio and Magnetom Skyra 3.0T units.

MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants less than two years of age. The responsible physician must evaluate the benefit of the MRI examination in comparison to other imaging procedures.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
