Imaging parts and service provider DirectMed acquires MR coil company ScanMed

DirectMed Parts & Service, a leading medical imaging parts, systems, and service company, announced today that it has acquired ScanMed, a leader in MR coil design, manufacture, and repair.

Based in Omaha, Nebraska, ScanMed is an OEM-certified company with a proven record of designing and repairing coils for GE Healthcare, Siemens, Philips, and Canon/Toshiba systems, among others. The company’s proprietary coils include the Procure prostate coil, pediatric blanket and brain coils, spine, vascular, and several extremity coils.

The company was founded in 2004 by Dr. Randall Jones, an industry innovator with a doctorate in electrical engineering, and 30 years of experience in medical imaging. Dr. Jones and his team have been awarded 12 design patents and developed numerous trade secrets enabling ScanMed to be the foremost MR depot-level coil repair partner for healthcare networks, independent service organizations (ISOs) and diagnostic imaging parts suppliers.

With over 60,000 parts in stock, DirectMed repairs, supports and sells GE, Siemens, Philips and Canon/Toshiba MR and CT parts to healthcare networks, imaging centers and ISOs around the world. Earlier this year, DirectMed acquired Aalborg, Denmark's LBN Medical ApS, a leading reseller of aftermarket medical imaging equipment and parts to customers around the world.

“Our strategic plan included building ScanMed’s MR coil distribution and repair footprint in Europe," said Jones. "With DirectMed’s Danish subsidiary LBN Medical ApS, that vision will now come true — thus, bringing the best of the U.S. to Europe.”

Both ScanMed and DirectMed are certified and compliant with ISO 13485:2016, the quality management system that meets the most rigorous regulations for the medical device marketplace.

“For over 10 years ScanMed has been our go-to vendor for the most complicated MR coil repairs," Brad de Koning, president and CEO of DirectMed, said. "All of us at DirectMed are delighted to partner with Dr. Jones and his team of highly capable physicists, electrical engineers, RF repair technicians, and customer support personnel. There will be no changes to the ScanMed brand, the Omaha operation, or their commitment to their entire healthcare client base.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
