Nonetheless, when a pediatrician prescribes a baby's brain remodeling, two questions arise: "Why?" and "Is it bad for her?".

This non-invasive non-ionizing method of brain imaging of infants, we try to reduce the time to 10 minutes. In practice, there was no complication or deterioration in the state of the child associated with NSA, and the children, whom NSAs do during sleep, do not even wake up ... The entire procedure, depending on the complexity, will take no more than 30 minutes.
