-- This is NM Medical’s second centre in Pune after its landmark centre in Kalyani Nagar in 2011 in addition to its multiple centres in Mumbai and Bangalore over the last three decades. If the Kalyani Nagar centre set a new benchmark in delivery of diagnostic, preventive health checkup, and corporate health checkup services to citizens of Pune, the centre in Sancheti Hospital introduces the very best in Orthopaedic and Neuro imaging with the installation of Magnetom Spectra 3T MRI.
The demand to provide high quality imaging has constantly driven innovations in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The advantages of higher field strength magnets are being realized and the MRI world is now looking at 3T imaging. Significant improvements in image quality, higher spatial resolution, and decreased scanning time have increased the usefulness of 3T, in a myriad of clinical applications.
“MAGNETOM Spectra offers a broad spectrum of applications from diagnosing damaged cartilage in the ankle to dynamic examinations of the abdominal area. We are glad that such an innovative product has been installed by NM Medical at Sancheti Hospital and will introduce this technology towards the benefits of the patients,” says Mr. K N Umesh Kumar – MRI Business Head, Siemens Healthcare.
MAGNETOM Spectra is the only 3T MRI system in Pune with Tim 4G technology, offering ultra-high-density coils with uniquedigital-
in and digital-out RF transmit for improved flexibility, accuracy, and speed.
The centre in Sancheti Hospital was inaugurated by Dr (Prof.) Kishor Taori, Chairman, Maharashtra Medical Council, Mumbai and by Dr K H Sancheti, Founder President & Chief Orthopaedic Surgeon, Sancheti Hospitals. Dr K H Sancheti said he was most excited about the addition of this premium imaging technology in his hospital. “Sancheti Hospital has always been at the forefront of high end surgical services, and we are delighted to welcome NM Medical into our family to provide the very best in diagnostic imaging to all our patients,” he says.
Dr. Nilesh Shah, Chairman, NM Medical comments, “At NM Medical we aim at providing world-class imaging service at affordable rates to enable our own population to receive the benefits of international standard diagnostic services and we are convinced that MAGNETOM Spectra 3T MRI will help us to achieve the same.”
In addition to 3T MRI, NM Medical’s centre in Sancheti Hospital also offers 24 hours services for CT Scan, Ultrasound & Doppler, & 2D Echo. NM Medical will also manage the health checkup department at the hospital keeping in mind the growing emphasis on preventive healthcare.
