Matrix (Registered as an Unit of Apace Imaging and Diagnostic Centre Pvt Ltd. CIN NO: U85120 AS 2005 PTC 007828) was conceptualized and started in Guwahati City, the gateway to the North Eastern States of India in the year 2006 by four practising Radiologists who till then were working in other places and had a common desire to start a modern state of the art multimodality diagnostic center after having the adequate training, exposure & requisite work experience.
The centre formally started in the year 2006 with the four Radiologists (Dr. H. S. Das Dr. P. Hatimota, Dr. P. Hazarika Dr. C.D. Choudhury and Dr. G.K.Kalita) as Directors & started its operations from their premises situated at 1st by lane, Tarun Nagar, ABC, near Rajiv Bhawan, Guwahati. Initially the centre started with radiology facility with X-Ray / USG & CT scan and with time as number of patients from adjoining districts & states increased the centre acquired a 0.5T MRI. With further greater footfalls the need for other modalities like Pathology, Microbiology, cardiology & neurology arose and subsequently these were incorporated in a phase wise manner. In the year 2011 the centre required a high end 1.5T MRI system & also upgraded their CT scan machine to meet further rising demands of the patients in the private healthcare sector. With time doctors and specialists of other departments also joined the centre to provide whole range of comprehensive diagnostic services under one roof.
The centre has now shifted from its existing premises to a new and better built building with more than adequate space & parking facility to Nexia Park, GMCH – Kacharibasti Connecting road, Christianbasti, Opposite Saint John’s Hospital & next to NEF Law College with has also has better connectivity with multiple access roads & different modes of public transport in the heart of Guwahati city. The medical equipments have also undergone upgradations as the centre now is equipped with the most modern 1.5 tesla MRI Magnetom “Amira” with quiet suite, 128 slice CT “Revolution” from Siemens capable of carrying out Coronary Angiography, Dual source CT for renal stone analysis , high end 3D reconstructions apart from all other routine investigations. A newer UGI endoscopy from Olympus & X ray Mammography have been added to the diagnostic armamentarium .
