What's is MRI
Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive, powerful and painless scan that uses both the magnetic field and radio waves to provide detailed images of the body from any angle. The images provided would give doctors insight into finding out cancer or any abnormality condition of the Body.
Stroke Risk Screening
Stroke is formed as a result of cerebral vascular deficits, its incidence increases exponentially from 30 years of age.

Most radiologists agree that MRI is the best diagnostic tool for evaluation of the Central Nervous System (brain and spinal tumor). In patients suffering from stroke, Diffusion Weighted Scan permits almost immediate visualization of the part of the brain that is not getting adequate blood flow, and allows faster treatment to prevent permanent cell death.
The SIGNA Voyager – State of the Art 1.5T wide-bore MRI, provides the most comfortable, swift and quiet experience for users. GE’s proprietary SilentScan technology dramatically reduces scanning noise and includes a Silent Neuro Package with Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI), which delivers a completely silent neuro exam, and expanded spine and musculoskeletal imaging. The wide and low Comfort Plus table and open 70cm design allows patients to rest freely while affording easy access and a comfortable scanning experience.
