Nomag IC enables exams of newborns, premature babies through noninvasive diagnostics
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 babies¹ – as an add-on to Siemens’ 1.5T and 3T 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 (MRI) 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 3T units.
