Also the system comes with a Fast Track feature, which helps in reducing the eye motion artifacts and thereby improving the accuracy of the diagnosis.

This makes Bhagawan Baba’s hospital unique and different from other institutions. Here credit goes to the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, which has continued to provide support to the hospital in every way,” Dr Gurumurthy said.
