Top-Mobile-Imaging-Providers

The mobile market has ebbed and flowed over the last two decades. In the early 2000’s, the demand for mobile routes expanded and technology upgrades grew the need for interim mobile options. The Deficit Reduction Act (DRA) of 2005 led to a significant decline in the demand for mobile service and yet, in the last several years, need for mobiles has risen again.

This current flow in mobile imaging has led to expanding and upgrading fleets to meet the needs of customers around the nation. But not all mobile fleets are built, maintained, or managed to the same standard. If you’re considering an interim mobile solution- whether long-term rental or starting with a day or two per week on a mobile route- we want to help you find the best provider for you, whether or not it's Block Imaging. The following guide to the top names in the mobile imaging space is designed to help narrow and simplify your search for an equipment provider.

GE has continued this somewhat confusing tradition with the features of their Revolution CT lineup. Don't worry, though- this article will clarify five of the most important features Revolution CT systems offer and give you a few reasons to get excited as they push imaging technology forward.

Over the past few years, Siemens has gained significant market share among CT scanner manufacturers. We believe the primary reason for this is the ways they’ve continued to improve on their innovations and overall product quality across every price point. Their current generation of CT scanners is no exception. But, while availability of these systems is rare in the secondary space, we do still have quite a few conversations with buyers about them. To help keep all you other buyers out there informed about the market, we've compiled a quick summary of what the latest models in Siemens' Somatom line have to offer.
