Norvic International Hospital has launched state-of-art 3 Tesla MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and 128 slices CT (Computed Tomography) scanner to its existing diagnostic facilities. The new MRI and CT scan equipments were inaugurated by former Crown Princess Himani Rajya Laxmi Devi Shah at an event held on the hospital premises.
3 Tesla MRI is a first of its kind in the country with an in-bore audiovisual system. The new MRI ensures patient comfort and helps them overcome anxiety as patients can watch movies and videos of their choice. Unlike the general MRI system the irritating sound other MRI produces is reduced by 80% in this system. Likewise, radiation from X-rays is reduced to 80% in 128 slices CT scan along with other advanced features.
