Most cost-effective and vendor neutral Low Dose imaging solution
You have ultimate responsibility for running an efficient and profitable organization. Add to that patient care expectations which are exceedingly high. Solutions to your most pressing challenges can come from unexpected places.
Maximize the value from your Nuclear Medicine department. Increase the efficiency without capital spending. Get the only solution in the market that can enable your lab to utilize Ultra-Low Dose imaging or Low-Dose imaging with higher throughput.
- Cost effective: UltraSPECT is a faction of the cost – 5-10% - of a brand new camera. Save on capital spending. You can keep all of your existing equipment – regardless of vendor or age – and get the same consistent results from each and every patient exam. Your practice will reach new levels of patient care and cost-effectiveness, all while eliminating the major capital spending required for a newer generation gamma cameras.
- Increased patient volume: Exam time will now be cut by up to half, so the department can potentially see twice as many patients.
- Patient satisfaction: Patients are engaged and want to go where the best service is offered. Provide them with safer imaging (lower dose) and increased comfort (faster exam), and they will come back. They will refer you to friends and family. And you will get more physician referrals to your hospital.
- Staff satisfaction: Staff, both technologists and physicians, will appreciate working in safer environment with shorter scan times. They will actively refer your facility to friends and family. And you will get more physician referrals to your hospital.
- Comply with ASNC guidelines: Be compliant with dose reduction guidelines from the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), effective January 1st 2014.
Did you know?
CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) will begin downward payment adjustments for those who do not satisfactorily report on quality measures for covered services - which includes low dose imaging. Physicians who do not comply with PQRS will be subject to a 2% payment cut. In addition, the value based modifier could impose further cuts to a physician who does not comply.
“For HCA, delivering the highest quality care to our patients is always the priority, and with or without industry mandates, we will provide lower dose and shorter exam times for all of our patients thanks toXpress3.Cardiac™ from UltraSPECT, giving us a significant competitive advantage over other local imaging facilities and hospitals.”
Ruck Davids, technical director of nuclear cardiology, Hamilton Cardiology Associates.
"When compared to the option of purchasing expensive new cameras and equipment, image reconstruction technology is much more affordable — at a tenth or less than a tenth of the cost — with a greater and reliable return on investment (ROI). It can also be essential to utilize software that is camera agnostic, which can enable the revitalization of a facility’s older imaging technology."
