Assured Imaging provides mammography access through
its Women’s Wellness Coaches.
Another scenario, he added, is when a hospital wants to start a new service line or add a second or third lab, but there isn’t any available space to build-out inside the hospital. In situations like these, Modular Devices can quickly bring in a mobile lab to add or expand services while the hospital plans for future expansion inside the hospital.
“We’re still seeing strong momentum in our core business of interim cardiac cath and peripheral vascular labs,” Koers said. “The demand here is strong for newer digital flat panel X-ray imaging technology as these systems provide very high-quality digital imaging for the physicians and lower X-ray doses for patients.”

A Mobile PET/CT from DMS Health Technologies.
Recent demand has been especially strong among smaller health screening clinics for such services as mammography, dental and health screening, said Chad Smith, president of Medical Coaches Inc. This market, combined with other customers focusing on replacement units for older fleets of PET/CT and MR, have resulted in an uptick in orders for the company.
“We recently built a new mobile lithotripsy unit for a good customer who, to save money, felt that having one large expandable wall would be enough in the scan area versus two smaller expandable walls," said Smith. "But after they put the coach into use, they quickly realized the opening on the single slide out was not nearly wide enough to navigate a stretcher or position the patient correctly."
Smith’s company was able to quickly create an additional expandable wall, shorten the existing wall, and expanded the entryway. They had the client up and running again in no time at all, he said.
Where you need them, when you need them
“There are many reasons why clients choose mobile solutions," said Matt Hoover, senior manager, market development, DMS Health Technologies. "For some, it is a cost-effective way of starting up a new service line and establishing volumes before making a large, capital purchase. For others, the service line has been established, but their volumes do not justify the capital outlay."
