Eyas Medical Imaging has installed its first neonatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the Ascent, at the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Cincinnati Children’s in Ohio, US.

The system has been installed at the hospital for research studies.

The data from the studies will be used to apply for 510(k) clearance for the system from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Cincinnati Children’s innovation ventures vice-president Abram Gordon said: “This is a significant technological advancement for our most vulnerable patients and validates the high level of innovation and problem-solving happening right here in Cincinnati.

“This new MRI solution is a direct output from Cincinnati Children’s and further evidence of the incredible people and ideas generated here in our region.”

The system deploys a 3 Tesla (3T) magnet for delivering a magnetic field strength that was not available in neonatal MRI systems before.

Enabling a comprehensive diagnostic tool, the 3T magnet provides detailed imaging of important organs, including the abdomen, heart, lungs and brain, to healthcare professionals.

The system helps avoid the risk of shifting fragile newborns to alternate MRI locations within the hospital by enabling direct installation within the neonatal unit.

Eyas Medical Imaging founder and CTO Dr Charles Dumoulin said: “The Ascent³ᵀ brings an unprecedented level of MR imaging and access to our smallest patients.

“By reinventing MRI technology, doctors can now visualise and understand neonatal health conditions using state-of-the-art MR imaging tailored to infants.”
