From July 01, 2015, the practice has been rebranded as “Picture This”, to reflect our new holistic focus on patient care.
The centre underwent a sea change in September 1995, with the acquisition of a Siemens AR.C CT scanner that was installed in Sir Hurkisondas Nurrottumdas Hospital & Research Centre.
In 1996, the CT scan centre had the privilege of being the first centre in India to start teleradiology facilities, which allowed transfer of CT scan images from the CT centre to Dr. Jankharia’s residence.
In 1999, the CT scanner was upgraded to a state-of-the-art spiral CT scanner, the AR.*, also from Siemens.
In Sept 2003, we moved our spiral CT to new premises at Nishat Business Centre, 2 blocks away from our main clinic, on Sardar V P Rd. In Sept 2004, we acquired the first 64-slice CT scanner in Asia. In June 2006, we also became the first private centre in India to acquire a fluoroscopic attachment with our CT scanner, which now makes it easier to perform all our CT-guided interventional procedures.
In mid-2015, we installed the Siemens TwinBeam Definition Edge, India’s and Asia’s first commercial single source, dual energy scanner that redefines both traditional CT scanning as well as dual energy scanning in diverse areas like gout, urinary calculi, metal artefact reduction, 3D angiography, etc.
