MR Imaging of the Newborn: a technical perspective. Hillenbrand, C. M. & Reykowski, A. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America, 20(1):63--79, February, 2012.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
This article discusses neonatal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and reviews equipment and procedures for MR-related transport, sedation, monitoring, and scanning. MR is gaining importance in the diagnosis and clinical management of critically ill, and often very low birth weight infants, so research is ongoing to make transport and examination safer and imaging more successful. Efforts are focused on integration of dedicated neonate MR scanners in neonatal intensive care units, improvements in incubator technology and handling, and more efficient use of scan/sedation time by choosing dedicated neonate coil arrays that improve the signal-to-noise-ratio and facilitate the choice of modern imaging techniques.
