CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE

Centers of Excellence have long been driving new developments in clinical healthcare protocols for oncology, orthopedics, neurology, pediatrics and so many more areas of healthcare. Despite the medical and procedural breakthroughs they achieve, these Centers that are advancing life changing and life-saving medical procedures rely on the information they get from testing methodologies, lab analytics, and the information they get from their imaging devices. In many cases, prescribing the right treatment that enhances and saves lives all starts with an ultrasound or MRI scanner, both of which require regular maintenance to assure clarity for clinicians making critical diagnoses.

Yet Centers of Excellence focusing on advancing breakthroughs in quality, longevity and efficiencies for servicing and repairing imaging devices to assure they operate as intended by their original manufacturers have not existed, until now.

TESTIMONIALS

Today, I attended the “Basics of Ultrasound” webinar presented by Ted Lucidi. I was fortunate to hear about this online event through the Georgia Biomedical Instrumentation Society and HTMA-Texas. Ted’s precise technical language and his relevant, high-quality illustrations immediately instilled in me a trust in his content expertise. I learned so much from his presentation that I requested an electronic copy for offline study. As an instructor myself, I appreciated Ted’s concise descriptions as well as his detailed explanations of the science of ultrasound and the technology that puts these advanced, lifesaving tools in the hands of our healthcare providers. My students will benefit from what I have learned from Mr. Lucidi.

“We use Innovatus Imaging because they have earned our trust. The quality, performance, customer satisfaction and long-term value is exponentially superior to other vendors we have tried. Utilizing Innovatus, we are confident our probe repairs meet the OEM intended design, contain quality parts, and have gone through complete inspection processes before returning to us for use. Our own customer’s echo all of these findings. In their words, we only send a probe out once for repair.”
