LMT Medical Systems GmbH is where MRI meets Neonatology; the MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag® IC Advanced allows newborns and premature babies to be transported directly from the NICU into the MR suite for examination by optimal, non-invasive Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The baby is protected inside the life sustaining, temperature and humidity controlled MR-incubator throughout the entire transport and MR examination.
The innovative system from the Luebeck-based company has revolutionised paediatric radiology. Previously, babies born before the 37th week of pregnancy who were dependent on the protective atmosphere of an incubator could not be examined in the MRT. The nomag® IC Advanced ensures children are protected and is constructed to be compatible with the MRT.
10 per cent of all newborns arrive in the world prematurely
Due to modern medicine, premature babies today have good development opportunities. Nonetheless, there are increased health risks for premature babies. In order for these children to be able to develop normally, it is important to detect possible organ damage early. Thanks to the precise MRT diagnosis, vital treatments can be initiated at once. nomag® IC Advanced is already expanding the examination spectrum for paediatricians and paediatric radiologists in numerous clinics all over the world.
- Temperature and humidity regulation according to the child’s needs
- No exposure to radiation for the baby
- A reduced need for sedation and elimination of general anaesthesia
- Improved noise protection for the infant in the MRI scanner
- Wider patient bed
- Optimal diagnostics options thanks to adapted RF coils for the head and body
- Optimized examination time with maximum safety
- Minimal patient handling
WELL-GROUNDED CONCEPT, SIMPLE HANDLING
The MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag ®IC ADVANCED also ensures simple handling of the system for the medical staff:
- Better access to the patient
- Better handling thanks to reduced weight
- Easier cleaning
- Optimized workflow for MRI examinations

EVEN BETTER FUNCTIONALITY IN A NEW GENERATION
In this new generation, the MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag ® IC ADVANCED, LMT Medical Systems GmbH has brought functionality many steps forward. Patient access and noise protection in the MRI scanner were improved, a wider patient bed, and reduced overall weight of the incubator. Just as with previous models, the life-sustaining incubator provides the required ambient temperature and humidity level for the baby, optimizing protection during transport and the MRI examination.
MRI MEETS NEONATOLOGY
The treatment of newborn and premature babies makes high demands of neonatologists and radiologists, and if complex organic abnormalities or malformations occur, non-invasive diagnostics are required. For instance, MR examination methods of the nervous system of newborn or premature babies today include MR spectroscopy, diffusion imaging or functional MRI. With the new MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag ®IC ADVANCED , such examinations can be performed on infants quickly and without complications.
RADIOLOGY SUITABLE FOR INFANTS
The properties and features of the MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag ®IC ADVANCED are designed to meet the needs of both newborn and premature babies.
Thanks to its individual temperature and humidity regulation, elimination of general anaesthesia, and no exposure to radiation, the MR Diagnostics Incubator System nomag ® IC ADVANCED meets the highest neonatological requirements, and is compatible with MRI systems of leading manufacturers.
