AnimalScan is a leading provider of animal imaging services in the US. Their branded outpatient imaging centers, located on both coasts, are fully equipped diagnostic facilities that contain the most advanced scanning equipment. They are the leader when it comes to animal MRI with each center staffed with a team of experienced radiologists, technologists, and anesthesiologists. AnimalScan also partners with specialty vets by leasing and servicing scanners in their own locations and work directly with referring vets to source their off premises imaging needs. With a growing number of locations across the United States, professionals in the veterinary industry are becoming familiar with the AnimalScan name. However, not many people know the story of how AnimalScan originated.
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. Usually, sick people. As such, the logistics involved can be notoriously inefficient and unnecessarily complicated. Medical imaging that is not well managed can contribute to this inefficiency.
Most PACS have a maximum useful life of somewhere in the range of seven to ten years. If yours is nearing that age, you need to begin considering your budget for a new PACS. A PACS of the ’00s vintage (2000-2009) likely was very expensive and static, meaning that it was available almost exclusively within the four walls of your facility and has a fixed amount of storage. You probably purchased the PACS from your modality vendor or from a company with a brand name that made you feel comfortable that your decision would be viewed as “smart.” But since the time you purchased your PACS the world of digital medical imaging has changed!
So how much does a new PACS cost?
A PACS is not a cookie cutter system where one size fits all. In fact, there are many different variations of the kinds of PACS available to you. Listed below are the 3 categories. Not sure which one applies to your practice? Contact us for a consultation and we will help you figure out what size PACS you need, and which type would work best for you.
