Medical Imaging System/Facility Planning Consultants

When considering a new diagnostic imaging system project, whether it is building a new facility, remodeling a facility or updating a system - there are many factors to consider.

If you haven't taken on a project like this in the past or don't want the responsibility or don't have the time to be totally responsible for a project - you may want to consider obtaining assistance.

We can provide as little or as much support as you would like to have. Generally diagnostic imaging projects require planning in many areas:

Facility Planning - Room Selection - System Selection - System Bidding - Bid Evaluation - Room/System Design - System Removal - Installation Co-ordination and Management

Our experience makes us uniquely qualified to advise you on issues sometimes over looked like:

System Facility Access - large system entry, hallway restrictions, doorway
obstructions, ceiling obstruction, etc.
Room Design - power, communications, shielding, system layout, cable
locations/concealment, floor and/or ceiling restrictions, secondary subsystem supports, etc.
System Evaluation - cost/budget, financing, amortization, depreciation,
application, specification, performance, systems interfacing, supplier selection, etc.
Project Implementation - scheduling, contractor co-ordination, systems
delivery, installation, testing, training,etc.

We have been involved with many projects and we can save time and money thereby allowing your staff to stay focused on their duties and justifying our involvement. In the end, you will probably have realized significant saving by having us working with you to complete the project on time and at budget or less.

How To Safely Buy Pre-Owned Medical Systems
August 8, 2011

Very often there is a need to acquire additional capability in our health care facilities but there isn't always the funds to purchase a new, full-functioned, state of the art, diagnostic imaging system. Therefore, a decision must be made to determine if the additional services can be shifted to another facility or if it is critical or at least necessary to remain at your facility. The decision usually comes back that it needs to remain and options to accommodate it must be considered.

Digital Radiography - Electronic X-Ray - When, Why and How?

It seems like we have crossed the healthcare frontier and the only thing left to conquer is analog or film based x-ray systems. MRI's, CT's, Ultrasound, PET, Bone Densitometry, Mammography and most diagnostic imaging systems output digital data, that is except for Radiography and Fluoroscopy. Most existing systems are still analog and put out either x-ray film and/or analog video. Although most mobile C-arms are now being produced with digital output capability, most existing C-arms, X-ray systems and R/F systems have not yet been upgraded. When you consider that today there are more x-ray studies done than any other modality study, we should concede, we are way overdue in moving to electronic Rad and Fluoro. These upgrades should probably be initiated before all others at medical facilities today.

How To Get The Most From Your Radiology Dollar
June 3, 2011

The decisions are getting harder when we try and determine what our facility should invest in to provide the best patient care. 256 slice CTs, 3.0T MRIs, Digital Mammography, PACS Upgrade, EHR and so on....? We first try and determine our available budget or we are asked to submit a request for funds based upon current and future requirements, local competition and/or physician requirements. It is now necessary to take a long hard look at what is currently being utilized and determine how best to enhance capabilities. You probably begin to bring in vendors to discuss the capabilities of their new systems, as well as potential costs. If you are like many administrators, you immediately get a large blast of reality $$$$$$$. You instantly know that you will be limited to one purchase or less and it's possible funding won't be available for several years. If you are experiencing growth, patient count is increasing, test procedures are on the increase, and avaliable system time is becoming harder and harder to come by, then you know you will need to upgrade Radiology capacity.
