Aspect Imaging Celebrates First Installation of Embrace® Neonatal MRI System in Canada at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto

LOS ANGELES--()--Aspect Imaging, the leading provider of compact MRI solutions, is proud to announce the successful installation of the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Ontario, marking a significant milestone as the first installation of its kind in Canada.

The Embrace® Neonatal MRI System, renowned for its compact design and advanced patient-focused approach to MRI, is specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of premature and newborn patients within the environment of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Among the many unique features of the Embrace® is the self-shielded design, which eliminates the need for a special shielded room and expansive floor space typically required with conventional MR systems. With the ability to perform MRI scans without leaving the NICU, the risks, challenges and stress typically associated with transporting the baby out of the NICU can be avoided.

"We are thrilled to be bringing the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System to Canada," said Wendy Slatery, Chief Commercial Officer of Aspect Imaging. "This installation represents a significant advancement in neonatal imaging capabilities for SickKids, reinforcing our shared dedication to enhancing patient care and outcomes in the most fragile patient population within the NICU."

SickKids is Canada's most research-intensive hospital and the largest center dedicated to improving children's health in Canada. The addition of the Embrace® Neonatal MRI System joins the hospital's comprehensive suite of diagnostic tools, helping clinicians to care for some of their youngest patients.

Aspect Imaging is committed to advancing pediatric imaging technology and looks forward to continuing to work with SickKids to support the hospital's mission of providing exceptional care to children and their families. SickKids joins other leading neonatal centers recognizing the value of incorporating the Embrace Neonatal MRI System into the NICU to expand access to critical information when and where it is needed, in the NICU.
