  • This webinar presents case reviews from neurosurgical and neuroradiological experts at Jefferson Abington Hospital and highlights the use of portable MR brain imaging.
  • The case reviews, including a young adult with traumatic brain injury and an elderly stroke patient, emphasize the Swoop system's role in providing brain imaging at the point of care.
  • The Swoop system assisted physicians in managing complex neurological conditions, providing images that enhanced treatment decisions and patient care in ICU settings.

"Rapid Rounds: Ultra-low-field MRI™ in the Jefferson Abington Hospital ICU" offers a glimpse into ultra-low-field MR brain imaging. The webinar features Jennifer Frabizzio, MD, neuroradiologist and director of neuroimaging, and G. Michael Lemole, Jr., MD, director and chair of the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience, both from Jefferson Abington Hospital. They discuss their experiences with the Swoop® Portable MR Imaging® system in critical neurosurgical and neuroradiological applications.

The Swoop portable MR brain imaging system, with its 64-millitesla magnetic field, allows clinicians to obtain MR brain imaging at the point of care in ICU settings. This webinar delves into its practical applications, showcasing how this technology can potentially reshape patient care in critical environments.

Traumatic Brain Injury in a Young Adult: The first case involved a 20-year-old who suffered severe head injuries from a motorcycle accident. Utilizing the Swoop system images, the medical team was able to diagnose and manage the patient's condition directly in the ICU, revealing details about his brain injury that were crucial for his treatment plan.

Elderly Stroke Patient: The second case focused on an 85-year-old male with a history of stroke and recent unresponsiveness. Swoop system images were instrumental in helping physicians identify acute changes in the patient's brain, leading to timely interventions. This case highlighted the Swoop system's ability to detect subtle neurological changes that were not apparent on initial CT scans.

Diagnostic Dilemma in Mental Status Change: The third case involved a patient with confusing symptoms. The Swoop system images were pivotal in helping physicians differentiate between potential diagnostic scenarios, ultimately assisting physicians in guiding the treatment approach. This case exemplified the utility of the system’s images when used in situations where traditional imaging was inconclusive.
