Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology has always proven to be a challenge to imply. Because of the sheer size and space these machines require, huge rooms specifically built for purpose are required. Or should we say, were required? Pakistani scientist invents world’s first portable MRI Scanner.

Yes! Pakistan feels proud to present Dr. Khan Siddiqui, a Pakistani scientist. He is a bio-medical engineer with years of research in medical imaging technology on his hands. He has invented world’s first portable MRI scanner. Mr. Siddiqui has launched this piece of technology under his New-York based initiative named “Hyperfine”. This company of his has managed to acquire clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the world’s first-ever portable MRI scanner.

The FDA accords 501(k) provide clearance to those devices that demonstrate and confirm that not only are they effective, but they are safe for public use as well without any hazardous side effects.

The first most important and immediate feature of this MRI scanner is its size. It can be seen that the dimensions of the MRI scanner are stupendously sleeker than the size of conventional MRI scanners. In addition, the weight of the portable MRI scanner is 635 KG. This weight is almost NOTHING when compared to the 4,500 KG of a typical 1.5T MRI machine used in diagnostic labs. The weight ranges up to 7,500 KG, when talking about a 3T MRI scanner. Now that’s a major breakthrough in the invention of the MRI machinery.

The thing that makes this compact MRI scanner portable is the wheel array placed at its bottom. With the help of this wheel array, anyone can move the machine without pushing 635 KG from place to place with much ease. Cherry on top of the cake – this machine is environment friendly as well. Interestingly, the Lucy point-of-care MRI, as the portable device is named, will consume 35 times less power than the normal MRI scanner.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is basically a radiology imaging technique. It uses radio waves and electromagnetism, all harnessed by a  computer to produce images of body anatomy. This technology provides doctors an insight to the human organs to detect different diseases through scanning when other methods of testing failed to provide sufficient information for the disease’s confirmation.

People in Pakistan are very proud and happy to know when the headline that a Pakistani scientist invents world’s first portable MRI scanner reached them.
