MEDRAD Launches TotalRepair on Select Ultrasound Probes

March 20, 2009 – MEDRAD Inc. Multi Vendor Service has launched TotalRepair, reportedly the first and only guaranteed repair solution on select ultrasound probes.

Enabled by 100 percent repair capabilities, TotalRepair aims to allow healthcare facilities to spend less on costly exchanges and replacements by maximizing the use of probe repair.

"MVS is committed to developing new repair techniques that will make equipment service budgets go farther. This has immense value to healthcare systems during grueling economic times like these," said Diane Watson, executive director of MEDRAD Multi Vendor Service. "With our ever-increasing repair capabilities and new offerings like TotalRepair, MVS can help hospitals and imaging centers save money by extending the life of their equipment."

TotalRepair not only helps healthcare facilities reduce service costs, but also mitigate overall financial exposure with a capped, guaranteed "worst case scenario" price provided up front. MVS supports its repair guarantee on eligible probes with an extended six-month warranty. (Extended six-month warranty applies only to MVS-applied service on standard probes. Transesophageal (TEE) probes are covered under a 90-day warranty.)

Automated medical imaging views using deep learning, artificial intelligence, Philips Epiq

GE, Siemens and Philips are among the echocardiography vendors that incorporate deep learning algorithms into its echo software to help automatically extract standard imaging views from 3-D ultrasound datasets. This is an example of the Philips Epiq system, which uses the vendor's Anatomical Intelligence software to define the anatomical structures and automatically display standard diagnostic views of the anatomy without human intervention. This can greatly speed workflow and reduce inter-operator variability.
