Gulf Healthcare International opens the first MRI Facility in Kuwait
On the 12th of December 2010, Gulf Healthcare International organized a scientific workshop at the Movenpick Hotel, Al Badaa, Kuwait and invited numerous doctors to reveal the installation of the MRI into the Specialized Clinics Centre. Dr. Al Kandari announced that the Ministry of Health is also going to make the (MRI) available in every general hospital, because it does not use ionic rays which is considered to be a type of radiation, but uses instead Magnetic resonance imaging, declaring that (MRI) gives an excellent diagnosis and very clear picture with fine details. Dr Al Kandari also said that the (MRI) can be either closed or open at one end and the usage of either type of the MRI depends on the decision of the doctors and according to the condition of the patient.
The (MRI) can be used for every part of the body including legs, arms, throat, face, chest, bone, nerves and tissues as the (MRI) can pin point the effect of disease in fine picture format.
Mr. Mark Adams, CEO of Gulf Healthcare International, spoke to the audience and outlined the company intentions to continue providing high quality service throughout laboratories and medical centres within the GCC region and in fact, were planning to expand into eventually acquiring hospitals. Medsol Diagnostics is the name of the laboratory division of Gulf Healthcare International and currently has 5 laboratories in the State of Kuwait e.g. Salmiya Medical Lab, British Medical Centre, Specialized Clinics Centre, Al Hamra Medical Lab and the German Medical Centre. Mark Adams also said that the (MRI) has the Achieva System with pulsar HP+ gradient system which ensures that performance is achieved over the entire 53cm field view with an excellent linearity.
The Vice President for Kuwait Operations, Mr. Ravi Dhir expressed that after Gulf Healthcare International had installed the (MRI) at the Specialized Clinics Centre, Kuwait it was hoped that the same quality machine could be installed in other GHI owned clinics across the region.
