Includes advanced MRI with improved table ergonomics to increase patient comfort and drive positive clinical outcomes
Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr Harsh Vardhan recently inaugurated several advanced medical facilities for patients at the Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi. The facilities include an advanced 3T MRI system — GE Healthcare’s 750W in the Radiology Department, a Geriatric OPD, a Cath Lab and a Lithotripsy Machine in the Urology department.
This second MRI system comes with a host of advanced features like wide-bore system for helping patients who are claustrophobic, especially aiding in greater convenience for children and heavily-built people. A second feature is that it allows free-breathing body imaging which ensures high-quality images, especially for non-cooperative and pediatric patients. Thirdly, its advanced clinical applications, table ergonomics, flexible coils and feet-first imaging will improve patient comfort and drive positive clinical outcomes.
The MRI system will be used for treating people with health conditions related to neurology, whole-body scans, cardiology, paediatric, musculoskeletal scans among others. This was a turnkey MRI project where GE Healthcare, in addition to the installation of the MRI, also undertook the complete interiors of the facility and enhanced user experience. The geriatrics OPD will be available every Sunday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. It will have specialities of medicine, general surgery, ENT, ophthalmology and orthopaedics.
