Many neonatal and intensive care babies require MRI scans to aid their diagnosis and treatment. Our new Baby MRI will help give them the best possible start in life, transforming their lives, one scan at a time.

Specialist centre in the East Midlands

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.

Big Appeal for Nottingham Children's Hospital

Thanks to the incredible support from donors our Big Appeal has allowed us to refurbish hospital parent and family accommodation.  And to fund a new state-of-the-art intra operative MRI (iMRI) scanner for children with brain tumours.

Our Neonatal Units at QMC and City Hospital provide intensive treatment of pre-term and poorly babies. They are specialist regional centres, caring for 1,500 of our tiniest patients each year.
