Cleveland, OH – July 26, 2019 – Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corporation is pleased to announce the first installation in the USA of a Trinias unity C16 at Owensboro Medical Practice in Owensboro, KY.

“We are very proud to have installed the first 16” ceiling mounted Trinias system in the United States”, says Michael Perrico, CEO of Alpha Imaging. “Outpatient Based Labs (OBL’s) have grown in popularity, primarily due to the economic benefits they offer to Healthcare”, says Tim Stevener, IXR Product Director for Shimadzu. “We are pleased to be working with Dr. Kishor Vora to showcase our latest product in his center. The result is a state-of-the-art facility using the very best in healthcare to provide exceptional outpatient imaging.”

In making the decision, Dr. Vora selected Shimadzu based on the ability to achieve high image quality at low doses. “We perform a large number of complex peripheral interventions at Owensboro Heart and Vascular”, indicated Dr. Vora. “The Trinias system provides me with outstanding imaging details that I need to perform those procedures.
