In trying to optimize your practice the purchase of a diagnostic imagingmodality it’s important to understand the advantages to your practice. Often times the advantages of a system are more than just the ability to perform a specific test that will help figure out whether or not a patient has a specific condition. Any modality from a portable X-Ray machine to an MRI scanner will enhance a practice by making it clear that everyone associated with that practice is looking to help the patient in the best way possible.
There are similar advantages when dealing with refurbished systems. With the rising costs of healthcare and medical technologies, it’s important to keep the idea of cost in mind. While thinking about cost when purchasing equipment it’s vital to look for ways where savings will not sacrifice quality and patient satisfaction.
Let’s say you want to buy a refurbished urology system and you know what you want. Going directly to manufacturer is likely to be extremely cost prohibitive and not only that, there are no guarantees of what kind of defect, if any, your new equipment is hiding. The shipping and installing considerations are also great factors to consider. Purchasing a refurbished piece of equipment is advantageous not only from the cost point of view, but also from other perspectives.
Let’s say you are purchasing urology equipment that’s refurbished and you want to get the best out of your investment. You want a full understanding of what you will get. In shopping for a refurbished system you want to make sure it has gone through the following:
- A thorough inspection
- A breakdown

- Properly repaired

- Carefully assembled to meet OEM ( Original Equipment Manufacturer) specification, ensuring that it works like new
In the end you want to get a system that operates like new, with optimal functionality that may well operate better than a new system. In addition to that, you want to make sure you have the right support from sales, to assembly, to daily function.
