Shared Service Ultrasound
Themultispecialty clinic, full service imaging center and internal medicine doctor can use ultrasound in more ways that almost any other physician. The system that is right for internal medicine ultrasound is a “shared Service” ultrasound system and is a very unique machine because it has to do so many things well. There are many units that will do great cardiac Echo and vascular. Lots of machines will do really nice Abdominal, Small parts, OB/GYN and Vascular Ultrasound. But only a handful will do it all and do it well. In the Mid-Range, Philips, GE, Biosound and Fukuda Denshi seem to be making a big splash in multi specialty ultrasound. GE and Philips seem to dominate the high end especially in the hospitals. Make sure that you pay attention to what your actual needs are and what the new or used ultrasound machine that you are looking at will do. It is very easy to get burned when trying to do shared service ultrasound. Let the experts at Idealmed.com help guide you through the selections for the right system for you.
