BADR AL SAMAA HOSPITAL INSTALLS IN-BORE MRI TECHNOLOGY.
Paving the way towards addressing the ever-evolving private healthcare environment in Oman, Badr al Samaa Group of Hospitals has installed first-of-its-kind, stress-free, state-of-the-art in-bore MRI technology at their Hospital in Ruwi.
In-bore MRI allows the patients to watch soothing videos while undergoing the MRI. It distracts the patient from the claustrophobic experience associated with an MRI.
'This will be a comfortable experience for patients needing an MRI,' said Dr Nevin Majeed, radiologist. The in-bore MRI addresses the three main concerns patients have while undergoing an MRI - a narrow bore or tunnel, closed feeling and loud noises generated by the scanner. Our MRI has a 70cm wide bore with a foot of space between the patient and scanner, in-bore video experience and advanced noise reduction technology. Patients can listen to soothing music through headphones. Scanning times are also much reduced with a majority of MRI's completed in 10-20 minutes.
Stress free first time right imaging with the Philips Ingenia 1.5T in-bore MRI reflects the vision of Badr al Samaa to deliver the highest level of image quality in the most comfortable environment at affordable cost.
Abdul Latheef, P A Mohammed and V T Vinod, directors, Badr al Samaa Group of Hospitals, said,' We are all working with focused dedication and excited anticipation as we have installed the first in-bore ambience experience MRI in Oman. This new machine incorporates latest technological innovations at the international level.
'This MRI technology would serve as a diagnostic tool. The new MRI unit with in-bore ambience is a revolutionary platform for many applications including cardiac MRI and oncology, which will provide referring doctors a unique additional diagnostic element.'
