Using the world’s first truly portable point-of-care (POC) MRI scanner, it is possible to acquire the fundamental neuro MR imaging contrasts in settings such as the neuro intensive care unit, emergency department, outpatient clinic, and pediatric clinic. Results are presented of neuro MRI exams of children and adults (some with known pathology) using T1W, T2W, FLAIR, and DWI from a low-field portable MRI scanner that transports directly to the patient’s bedside.
