Saudi Arabia, November 4, 2018

THE installation of latest advanced Digital Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine at the Abeer Medical Center was inaugurated by Dr. Mahira Alungal, Executive Director of Abeer Medical Group here on Tuesday. The inauguration ceremony was held at the Abeer Medical Center, Bawadi, Jeddah, K.S.A.

Dr. Jemshith Ahmed, Vice-President, Strategic Planning of Abeer Medical Group, said the machine is top of the line machine which will be an important tool for the doctors in the unit and the region to aid in proper clinical management. Dr Ahmed explained that for reporting the scans, Abeer has tied up with a tele-radiology platform which has an impressive array of consultant radiologists trained in the west.

Jayan Vice-President, Projects and Business Development of Abeer Medical Group, said MRI facility will go a long way in providing quality healthcare service to the people of Jeddah. This is part of the 4 MRI units that Abeer is planning to commission in this year, added Jayan.

Dr. Mohammed Farsi, Corporate Medical Director, said the nerves, brain and spinal cord, as well as muscles, ligaments, and tendons are seen much more clearly with MRI than regular x-ray and CT scan for that reason MRI is regularly used to image knee and shoulder injuries.

Danish Ahmed, Corporate Affairs Manager, welcomed the gathering.
