Saints wide receiver Marques Colston made an appearance at Children’s Hospital on Wednesday to present a $103,000 check for the purchase of a NeoRay Digital Imaging System for the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

“The highly portable X-ray system is specially designed for use with newborns,” according to a news release from the hospital. “It may be easily moved from incubator to incubator and allows for a drastic reduction in radiation exposure; a critical need in the early days of life.”
