Neonatal brain MRI is increasingly undertaken both for clinical care and research with the main focus on enhanced care for fragile babies during scanning and optimized imaging performance.
The Connectome Neonatal System was developed as a joint project by Jo Hajnal, Centre for the Developing Brain & Department of Biomedical Engineering, St. Thomas Hospital, KCL London, U.K. and RAPID Biomedical to consistently gain high image quality when examining babies. This system is being used for the European Research Council funded “Developing Human Connectome Project” (319456).
