A dedicated 0.35T Neonatal-Infant Brain MRI system is developed to investigate the effectiveness and safeness for neonatal and infant patients. 66 volunteers from 0-12 months are recruited to undergo a clinical trial and it is found that low field brain images displayed high grey-white tissue contrast, which is notably helpful for clinical diagnosis. The newly developed system also has very low acoustic noise and that most of the volunteer showed no sign of temperature raise. Low field MRI system therefore has the potential to be a effective and safer alternative MRI system for neonatal and infant patients.
