If your facility uses a GE Discovery ST or STE PET/CT scanner , you've probably received a letter from GE notifying you of the "end of service support" (EOSS) for the product line. We can assure you: this is not the major issue that, on its face, it might seem to be. Yes, you will come into some changes and expenses you weren't expecting for another few years. But you don't need to change immediately or come up with a great, big chunk of money right now.
With the EOSS-designated GE Discovery ST PET/CT series as our example, we'll share why OEMs use EOSS, why your response can be timed gradually, and how an EOSS letter can actually be signal of significant savings to come.
