Mobile Imaging Service

When people contact us to discuss renting mobile MRI, CT, or PET/CT systems, one of the first questions they ask- after "How much does a mobile rental cost?"- is whether or not a rental includes service and, if so, what they can expect from that coverage. The answer to the front half of that question is generally yes. When you rent an imaging system, most rental providers (like Block Imaging) include service coverage throughout your rental term. 

What you can expect from your rental service coverage, however, looks a little different from provider to provider. To give you an idea of what types of service features might be included in a mobile imaging rental agreement, we'll break down what's provided when you rent from Block Imaging as an example. We'll also cover a few things you can expect from the experience.

The wonders of technology have created a greater peace of mind for many medical offices and hospitals by providing a way to easily, effectively, and safely store and retrieve digital records. Nothing demonstrates this clearer than when a facility experiences an event that damages or destroys imaging and record-keeping equipment. As "set-it-and-forget-it" as backup and recovery technology can seem, these systems still require some proactive treatment.

Whether the event in question is disastrous for a single laptop (dropped on a hard floor) or for dozens of pieces of equipment across a network (flooding in your building's first couple of floors), the following are some industry best practices to help make sure that restoring access to your patient data can be quick and easy, freeing you to respond to the other urgencies that arise in a disaster recovery scenario.

Imaging Equipment Project Management: What Can Your Provider Really Do for You?

Posted by Mackenzie Dryer

Jun 29, 2017 8:42:00 AM

When you buy a medical imaging system the old maxim, "You get what you pay for," is true in a number of ways- especially when it comes to project management. Many times an imaging system can be purchased used from a broker or as-is from another site for less than it costs to purchase it from a refurbisher/ turnkey provider like Block Imaging. However, in many of these cases, once you've sealed the deal on your purchase, much of the process of getting the system to your facility and ready to scan patients is left in your hands.

An equipment provider with full project management capabilities can facilitate so much more than a transaction that transfers ownership. As an example, we'll share with you below what the cost difference pays for when you purchase a refurbished medical imaging system from Block Imaging.
