3 tips for getting the most out of your molecular imaging equpiment

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
From the June 2014 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine

  • Good service people. “If your service person cannot fix all the problems or diagnose them, then the people using the equipment do not feel comfortable,” said Daniel Gasparovich of DEG CORP.

  • Appropriate power protection. “Our belief is that, in all instances, imaging devices should have appropriate power protection,” said Kenneth Smith of BC Technical Inc. “We believe this is key to system reliability and customer satisfaction.” Power issues such as surges, sags, brownouts, spikes and noise all impact the system’s performance and reliability. Even though power spikes and surges do unseen damage to electronic components and they might not fail immediately — they are still weakened and their lifecycle is shortened, said Smith.
