US-based MRI system developer Aspect Imaging has received an Innovative Technology contract from Vizient, the US’ largest provider-driven healthcare performance improvement company.
The contract is for Aspect Imaging’s Embrace Neonatal MRI System, a point-of-care solution for neonatal neuroimaging.
The Embrace system is designed to meet the imaging requirements of premature and newborn infants, providing vital data to the care staff while complying with the unique needs of neonatal patients.
Its features include a temperature-controlled patient bed and Whisper Quiet sound profile, which makes it suitable for use in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
The MRI system has received regulatory approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is CE-approved for sale in the European Economic Area.
Aspect Imaging chief commercial officer Wendy Slatery said: “It is an honour to have the Embrace recognised by the clinical experts at Vizient, as an Innovative Technology, and an exciting opportunity to bring unique and clinically valuable solutions to Vizient customers.

“We are looking forward to working with Vizient members seeking to elevate and expand neurocritical care of the smallest patients while reducing staff time and patient risks associated with transporting new-borns to a traditional MRI.
“The Embrace MRI gives the neonatal medical team access to information from the first hours of life and throughout the patient’s time in the NICU, upon which critical care decisions will be based.”
Vizient’s Innovative Technology Programme helps assess products for their potential to bring innovation to healthcare.
As part of the programme, Vizient works alongside customer-led councils, which track solutions that could boost patient and healthcare worker safety or enhance the business operations of healthcare providers.
Aspect Imaging’s contract was awarded after the Embrace system was recommended by hospital experts working on one of Vizient’s provider customer-led councils.
