iRad Medical Holding Limited (iRad), the healthcare arm of Black Spade Capital Limited (Black Spade Capital), has just announced that in view of the growing demand for imaging diagnostic services in Hong Kong, three more medical scanning diagnostic centres have been opened within the first half of 2022. The new centres offer comprehensive medical scanning diagnostic services including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer tomography scan (CT Scan), 2D & 3D mammography, ultrasound and X-ray. Meanwhile iRad has established cooperative relations with various internationally renowned insurance companies, government agencies, respected prominent private medical practitioners, local medical groups, multinational corporations, Hong Kong-listed companies and non-profit organizations, boasting a strong customer network.
Following the inauguration of the centre on the 13th floor of Mongkok Grand Plaza in the first quarter of this year, iRad expanded its market presence again early this month in the core commercial area of Central at Levels 12 and 13 of The L. Place. Adjacent to a number of Grade A commercial buildings, The L. Place is less than a 30-second walk away from the taxi stand of The Center and easily accessible for people with disabilities who can get off and be picked up at the entrance of The L. Place. A total of three new MRI and CT scanners were introduced to ensure the delivery of enhanced scanning technology with higher resolution and better image quality.
Mr. Kin Wong, CEO of iRad, said: “As an independent medical institution, iRad does not belong to any medical group. Founded nearly 17 years ago, iRad is now the largest private professional medical scanning and diagnosis practice in Hong Kong. We have been keeping pace with the times, constantly installing more high-end equipment and attracting medical talent from different professional specialities. iRad has always been committed to serving every single patient and partner with the most comprehensive medical services of the highest standard. With pressure mounting on the local healthcare system from social issues such as the ageing population and people becoming more health conscious, more people are choosing to have whole body MRI for early detection of physical abnormalities. At present, iRad operates seven scanning and diagnosis centres supported by a medical team of around 120 radiologists, radiographers, nurses and support staff members who have served nearly 800,000. As medical data moves toward full digitalisation, we are also embarking on an upgrade of our existing technology infrastructure this year to allow doctors to receive medical scan images more quickly with the added benefits of satisfying demand for electronic real-time archiving and greatly shortening reporting time, thus enhancing the efficiency of the whole process”.
