The clinic is equipped with MRI, AIRIS Vento (HITACHI), which is indispensable for diagnosis and assessment of neurological diseases. The MRI has a wide open magnet so as to patients feel more comfortable while the images are taken, compared with superconductive MRIs that patients are placed in a narrow tunnel. At the clinic, MRI examination is always available whenever needed, so the patients do not have to worry about the results while waiting for the appointment for a scan.
