As a regional specialist centre we regularly treat babies requiring brain surgery or those who have spinal or congenital issues. The new ‘Baby MRI’ incubator will be an all-in-one scanning environment for babies, keeping them comfortable and protecting them from noise, reducing the need for sedation. It will also be used in trials with babies with brain injuries who could benefit from innovative ‘brain cooling’ therapies.
Baby MRI Appeal
Our Big Appeal supports Nottingham Children’s Hospital and the Baby MRI is the important next stage of the appeal, focusing on neonatal babies.
Each year our Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Units at Nottingham Children’s Hospital treat thousands of babies. The Baby MRI Appeal is your chance to make a difference and help give them the best possible start in life.
