Which Systems Would You Put in Your Imaging Facility?

OEM leading modality.jpg

Having spent thirteen years of my career with a major medical imaging OEM, in diverse roles, I've had the opportunity to build a thorough and integrated vantage point on the separate strengths of many equipment manufacturers serving the imaging field. When my background comes up in conversations, buyers often ask me my opinion on various OEMs/providers and the overall value proposition of their equipment; essentially, "Whose systems would you buy?" This happens often enough that I want to take the next few paragraphs to put those opinions and observations down more permanently. 

Keep in mind, when I choose to speak positively about a given OEM in a particular area, I do not mean to imply anything negative about another OEM. My goal is to share with you which manufacturers are shining in each of the major imaging modalities, right now.

OEM vs secondary.jpg

With twenty years in the refurbished equipment market, we've heard the question thousands of times- something along the lines of, "Will the quality I get from a secondary dealer be as high as the quality I get from an OEM?" We know that when buyers ask this, they aren't just asking about the quality of the equipment, they're asking about installation, ongoing service, uptime, etc. They're asking about the overall value of choosing a provider like Block Imaging over the "household names" of the imaging field.

To answer those questions, we'll share with you below what we've shared with equipment seekers all over the world: six areas where choosing medical imaging equipment from a secondary dealer can be a better value than choosing equipment from an OEM.

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.
