As early as next year, residents of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug who need magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will not need to travel outside the district to undergo it. Gubernator Yuri Bezdudny visited the Nenets District Hospital and said that the MRI machine would be delivered in 2023.

“We never had an MRI in the county. We sent everyone who needed diagnostics outside the district – to Arkhangelsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg. We did our best – MRI will appear in the region in the first quarter of 2023. Everyone who needs a medical service will be able to get it at the Nenets District Hospital, – said Yuri Bezdudny.

Before delivering high-tech medical equipment, it is necessary to mount the building where it will be located.

Recall that it is impossible to install an MRI machine in the building of the Nenets Regional Hospital due to the requirements for operating the equipment.
