Durdans adds new technology to Radiology Department

Durdans Hospital said this week it added a one-of-a-kind MRI and CT scanner to its newly established Department of Radiology. The world renowned Siemens Magnetom Avanto 1.5 Tesla 18 Channel MRI Scanner and the Siemens Somatom Definition AS 64-slice CT Scanner with a host of desirable features for the clinician as well as to the patient will add to the Durdans vision of being the best in the country when it comes to health care, the hospital firm said in a statement.

These two new medical equipments will make Durdans Department of Radiology the largest, most advanced and best equipped Radiology Department in the country. Patients will now be able to enjoy absolute safety and maximum comfort with uncompromised precision, it said.

In medical practice, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to distinguish pathologic from normal tissue and is totally harmless to the patient. In comparison to the traditional x-ray which involves doses of radiation, the MRI uses strong magnetic fields and non-ionizing radiation in the radio frequency range.

The Siemens Somatom Definition AS 64-slice CT Scanner is the fastest in the industry on a 64-slice platform and provides doctors with the best image quality provided by it’s highest isotropic resolution. This machine also is the lowest dose provider in the industry while delivering highest image quality.
