First Open MRI Scanner In The Region
Avicenna Clinic, a new private healthcare clinic in Peterborough, has installed the first open MRI scanner in the region.
Avicenna Clinic is an independent, consultant-led private healthcare practice with a range of specialist consultants.
The clinic’s Hitachi Open MRI facility is particularly useful for patients who suffer from claustrophobia or obesity. Patients benefit from MRI scanning technology without experiencing unnecessary anxiety or physical discomfort associated with the more usual enclosed imaging systems which typically have a tunnel-like scanning area.
Dr Hany Elmadbouh, lead consultant and radiologist, said: “I am delighted that the Hitachi Open Scanner has been successfully installed in the practice and that patients will soon benefit from this highly in-demand facility.
“Avicenna Clinic will be a centre of excellence, specialising in minimally invasive surgery, imaging and image-guided intervention techniques. Being the first clinic in the region to have the Hitachi Open MRI Scanner is just one example of the way we will be using the latest technology to provide the highest level of patient care here at the clinic.”
The clinic is located on North Street in the centre of Peterborough.
