Many healthcare service providers are switching to 3D mammography equipment because they are efficient in early detection of breast cancer, especially in dense breasts. RadSource Imaging Technologies is one of the leading suppliers of 3D mammography equipment in the U.S. We help buyers know what to look for and what to expect when buying 3D mammography equipment.
How can I get the best value for money when purchasing 3D mammography equipment?
Generally, the best deal is a turnkey solution from the seller. This type of agreement offers delivery and installation with the purchase of 3D mammography equipment. At RadSource Imaging Technologies, our turnkey agreement comes with a first scan guarantee, which means that we carry the risk until you make sure that your system is fully functional and sign off.
To reduce the risk further, some buyers ask for parts and service agreements to their purchases. The staff at RadSource Imaging Technologies always makes sure that our clients get the best value for their money. We provide our customers with QC test print outs and inspection results. Important things to consider when buying 3D mammography equipment include the detector age, the market, and the team that will manage the project.
Detector age vs. system age
It is essential to understand that the detector age of your mammography equipment is more important than the age of the system itself. A significant proportion of the value of your equipment is pegged on the detector. Check the serial tags at the bottom of the device to determine the year of manufacture of the detector.
What are the effects of the market on the price of mammography equipment?
As a buyer, you should expect to pay more to sellers that provide the highest value. In many cases, value is attached to the amount of risk involved, and the seller that bears the most risk often provides more value.
If a seller does not provide any additional services after the purchase of mammography, then you are likely to pay less for the equipment. However, you should expect to pay a higher price if the seller provides additional services such as inspection, crating, transport, and installation.
At RadSource Imaging Technologies, we provide a turnkey package with each mammography equipment purchase. We will not just sell you the equipment, but we can also deliver, install and provide training on how to use the equipment. This translates to high value and low risk for our clients.
Project management team
When purchasing mammography equipment, it is essential to understand the team that will manage the purchase project. Once you come to us for 3D mammography equipment, we will discuss your project so that you can have a clear understanding of what we will do and by when.
Our technicians have excellent project management skills and will strive to ensure that your unit is properly inspected, transported and installed in the right room. This may involve visiting your premises to ensure that the mammography room is configured correctly and that it meets the required standards.
We can train and provide service agreements that will lower risk and add value to the purchase of your equipment. Call us today to discuss your project.
