We are the pioneers in the field of diagnostic imaging in the Malabar region ever since 1996.
Our success story starts with the establishment of the first MRI centre of Malabar in Kozhikode at a time when magnetic resonance imaging was rare in many parts of the world and when there existed hardly a few thousands MRI equipment around the world!
The MRI facility established by us at Kozhikode in 1996 was the only one between Cochin and Mumbai at that time. There was no MRI facilitiy even at Kasturba Medical College at Manipal and clients from far away places like Goa, Manipal, Mngalore, Kasargode had to come to Kozhikode for MRI investigations.
Introduction of a SUPERCONDUCTION.5T” MRI equipment – the first of its kind in India –at Kozhikode- at that time was the brainchild of a farsighted and dynamic radiologist who was at the very beginning of his professional career. The credit of this unique accomplishment goes to Dr P.C. Shaji – the former Secretary and President of the Radiological and Imaging Society of India, who isthe founder of the now well known Dr Shaji’s MRI and Medical Research Centre Pvt Ltd. having a network of independent multi modality diagnostic imaging facilities in and around Kozhikode and Malappuram Districts.
The NABH accredited centre at Puthiyara, Kozhikode, houses Kerala’s First 18 Channel 1.5 whole body MRI equipment with facilities for carrying out sophisticated investigations like functional MRI, Spectroscopy, Neuro Perfusion, MR Mammogram, Cardiac MRI, advanced MR Angiogram, etc. We also have modalities like Open MRI, Computerized Radiography, Digital (x- ray) Mammography, Digital OPG (the one and only in Kerala), Electro Neuro Diagnostics in addition to conventional imaging modalities like CT, ULTRASOUND, COLOUR DOPPLER, etc. spread over in our different centers.
