Healthy Greetings,

Wednesday, April 4, 2018, MRI machine at RS Kasih Ibu Surakarta has officially operated.

What is MRI?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or magnetic resonance imaging is a test that utilizes magnetic fields and radio wave energy to display images of structures and organs in the body. MRI can provide an overview of body structure that can not be obtained on other tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound, or CT scans.

Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRI does not use X-ray radiation in the process. This means people who are vulnerable to radiation risk, such as pregnant women, can undergo MRI. You who undergo the procedure also will not feel pain.

The MRI service at RS Kasih Ibu Surakarta uses MRI Hitachi Airis Vento LT 0.3 Tesla with Open MRI type so it is more convenient for children’s patients, obesity, and narrow space phobia because it is not tubular like conventional MRI usually.

Hopefully with this MRI machine can improve the service of Kasih Ibu Surakarta Hospital.
