In 2020, a portable 64mT ultra-low field MRI system designed for point of care bedside use received 510K clearance (Hyperfine, Guilford, CT). Our pediatric institution (Nationwide Children’s Hospital) has acquired one of these systems to meet neuroimaging needs for critically ill NICU or PICU patients who cannot tolerate transport to the MRI department. Prior to scanning patients, safety testing for displacement and heating was conducted on monitoring hardware that will be connected to the patient during the bedside MRI. The monitoring hardware was found safe to stay connected to the patient during the bedside MRI.
