According to an October 17 report in the Asian Age, the facility is scanning 10 to 12 patients per day until officials are satisfied the system is working properly.
The scanner has been out of service since January, when 32-year-old Rajesh Maruti Maru was killed as he escorted a family member into the MRI room for an examination. Maru was carrying a metal oxygen tank at the time and died when he and the tank were sucked into the magnet bore. According to a previous report, a metal detector that would have detected the tank allegedly was not functioning.
After the accident, technicians from Philips Healthcare inspected the 1.5-tesla Achieva Nova scanner. Hospital authorities claimed that the 9-year-old machine had been functioning normally before the accident, according to the report.
