Selling your used imaging system can be an enormous help in offsetting the cost of an equipment upgrade. How much of a help depends on how much value you can get out of your system, which depends on what prospective buyers are willing to offer you.

Not all buyers will make you the same offer- not all of them will even make you a fair offer- but there are those who can bring what the market demands to the table, plus other added value.

The clip below will share with you three ways Block Imaging offers value when you sell your medical imaging equipment- whether you sell to us or not!

DR Panel Subscription Program.jpg

Subscription services are nothing new. In fact, pretty much everyone in any developed country has at least one or two. From Netflix to municipal services like trash collection, people all over the world sign up for services that provide them with the use of something they don't necessarily intend to own- like a server filled with thousands of movies or a garbage truck. Now, DR panel providers are applying that same model to digitizing your analog X-ray equipment. Imagine: your facility can make use of a fully-covered DR panel without making a lump sum capital expenditure. Intriguing? We think so.

While outright purchase of a DR panel may still be the best choice for some, we’re going to share with you the top three reasons we recommend anyone shopping the DR panel market to consider a panel subscription program. We can't speak for every subscription provider out there, so we'll use our program terms as examples along the way.

AMX IV Plus Digital Upgrade Packages.jpg

The basic design and functionality of a portable X-ray machine hasn't changed dramatically over the last 20 years. This is precisely why it's so common to find GE AMX machines from 2005, 2000, and even 1995 still being used in hospitals every day.

Even so, digital X-ray is becoming more and more prevalent in fixed systems, leaving radiology directors in search of economical ways to digitize their portable X-ray images without having to line up at the CR reader after each study. What you'll see below are three upgrade options from Block Imaging that make this happen.

Near field communication (NFC) is not a new technology. It's been used in everything from cellphones, to credit cards, to wristwatches. It's the technology that allows you to buy groceries with a tap from your card, exchange social contacts with a wave of your phone, and enter secure locations with a key fob or a name badge. Now, NFC has been integrated into digital radiography (DR) panels to further the workflow improvements already offered by DR.

If your imaging facility is hoping to use a single DR panel across multiple X-ray systems, a panel equipped with NFC not only makes it possible, it does so easily and quickly.

Digital Radiography Plate Drop Coverage: What You Need to Know

Posted by Tim Mustapha

Jul 13, 2017 3:33:00 PM

You’ve bought an expensive, top of the line wireless DR panel (digital radiography). It’s only been out of the box for two days when your lead tech, who is used to working with inexpensive CR plates, drops it. Do you have DR panel drop coverage?

Okay, so the paragraph above is scary, right? Almost scary enough to second-guess an upgrade or certainly purchase insurance coverage. Costly object X is entered into catastrophic situation Y and a hypothetical lack of coverage leads to budget-crushing dollar amount Z in damages. The story may be hackneyed but, at its core, it relays the reason why any of us buy coverage for anything: in case of XYZ.

If you're on the road to DR panel ownership, drop coverage should at least be part of the conversation with your provider. Keep reading and we'll share more details you can use as you approach the subject of DR panel drop coverage.
