A simple MRI test can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. Having a relaxing distraction can make this test seem less intimidating especially to young patients, who may require sedation to make them relax and lay still for a long enough period of time.
As patients check-in for the MRI exam, they can choose from a variety of themes such as fish or nature. A highly-sophisticated projector system called the 'Ambient Experience' virtually transforms the room into a multi-dimensional theatre where images from the selected theme are projected onto the specially-designed walls.
As soon as the patient enters the room, the theme is initiated, and the environment becomes tailored to the patient’s preferences. Each of the themes has accompanying lighting and music which makes children and anxious adults feel more relaxed during their procedure.
The reputation of a hospital is built on the quality of medical care provided. Hence, stringent standards are in place to recruit world-class medical professionals. Our panel of highly qualified doctors have trained extensively in leading hospitals around the world and possess internationally recognized degrees from Europe, USA and other continents. Combined with state-of-the-art technology, the team delivers exemplary care and treatment following the highest international standards and protocols.
