Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® Highlights MRI Technology with Aspect Imaging

Los Angeles, CA – January 10, 2018 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Aspect Imaging Founder, President and CEO, Uri Rapaport and VP of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Andrew Lonergan, who will discuss the new developments in MRI technology.

MRI scans can be immensely beneficial tools for medical professionals to determine the needs of their patients. Conventional MRI systems can present obstacles such as safety, size and installation issues that makes them inconvenient and less accessible. Aspect Imaging is revolutionizing the MRI space with their next generation technology, which enables MRI at the Point-of-care – MRI where you need it, when you need it.

According to Uri Rapaport, this works wonderfully in the neonatal units. “MRI is a tool that can measure the functioning of the brain, not just the structure. Ironically, it’s important to do this during the first half hour of their life but taking babies outside of the neonatal intensive care unit to MRI suites presents great challenges. Aspect decided to change the game. We developed an MRI system that can be placed inside the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), next to the patient, with almost no restrictions. Parents of the baby can be right there while it is happening.”

Dr. Andrew Lonergan chimes in and says, “MRI is a powerful imaging modality to non-invasively look at the structure and function of a premature baby’s brain. Other imaging modalities like CT and ultrasound, may not show the exquisite fine structure that you can see with MRI. We can now provide critical information in premature babies very soon after they are born. This is an extra tool to help the neonatologists in their care of these vulnerable babies.”

The Aspect Imaging Embrace® Neonatal MRI scanner has CE certification and FDA clearance and was launched this week at the RSNA Conference in Chicago.

“Knowing how this technology helps is crucial,” says JL Haber, VP of Programming for Worldwide Business. These developments have to be shared with the public.”
