Lahore : The facility of MRI test during night time has been started at Lahore General Hospital for the first time in its history and now the patients would be able to be diagnosed through this machine till 12am at night.
This facility would be very useful for poor and deserving patients who could avoid the highly paid lab tests from outside the hospital during night time.
Moreover, the government employees would also be the major beneficiaries of this initiative as they are too busy during daytime in their official duties to reach hospital.
Principal Post Graduate Medical Institute and Lahore General Hospital Prof. Ghias Un Nabi Tayyab told in this regard that LGH is the first hospital in Public sector to introduce this facility.
Prof. Ghias Un Nabi Tayyab along with MS LGH Dr. Ghulam Sabir inspected Radiology Department last day and personally observed the patients in the process of MRI test. The attendants of the patients told that they could never imagine that such facility of a
costly test would be available in a government hospital during night time.
Prof. Ghias Un Nabi Tayyab told that LGH administration is taking practical steps to provide best available medical facilities to patients. He was of the view that time diagnosis of a disease is first important step towards its treatment; this was the theme which was focused while creating this facility of night time MRI test at LGH.
