Innovative Magnetic Resonance at Hospital da Luz Aveiro

Innovative Magnetic Resonance at Hospital da Luz Aveiro


The Imaging Centre of Hospital da Luz Aveiro performs, since March 18, Magnetic Resonance exams with innovating 3 Tesla equipment, that allows a better and faster diagnosis with higher comfort for patients. This is the first hospital in the centre region of the country and one of the first in Europe to have this device.

Hospital da Luz Aveiro reinforces, this way, its investment in differentiated imaging diagnostic exams, with great benefit for patients.

3T Magnetic Resonance has a higher rate of image capturing, allowing better results in the accurate and quick diagnosis of different pathologies. Moreover, it's more comfortable for patients (reducing the sense of claustrophobia) and easier to monitor by health professionals. It is also less noisy (a noise reduction of about 90%, compared to conventional systems).

The installation of this equipment is part of the 10 million Euros investment plan in top clinical technology in the units of Hospital da Luz network, developed in the latest months and including also the installation of new imaging equipment in the hospitals of Lisboa, Arrábida and Setúbal, and in the clinics of Oeiras, Cerveira and Amarante.
