Owning an ultrasound machine is an excellent way to grow your practice and provide your patients with the services they need, when they need them.
But purchasing an ultrasound machine is a very heavy expense. Therefore, the key to preserving your investment is to maintain it properly, and to reduce the need for a costly repair. At Ultra Select Medical, we maintain ultrasound equipment to keep it running in top condition, and also to ensure that it offers the very best in diagnostic capability.
What Does Preventative Maintenance Include?
Ultrasound machines have a transducer that is responsible for sending and receiving acoustic echoes, which are then used to recreate images on-screen. The transducer has hundreds of tiny crystals that help it function properly. It is also the part of the ultrasound machine that endures the most wear and tear. Over time, being handled improperly, accidentally dropping it, or too much use can lead to damage. Once damaged, image quality will start to suffer, which is why regularly evaluating for your machine’s accuracy is so critical. It is essential that the equipment is inspected thoroughly by a technician to spot signs of trouble and to have the most diagnostic accuracy possible.
What is Preventative Maintenance for Ultrasound Machines, and why you Need it
Preventative maintenance is necessary to keep your ultrasound machine working as efficiently, reliably, and consistently as possible. Maintenance is an excellent way to reduce wear and tear, and to increase the longevity of the equipment. Your patients rely on your ultrasound machine to diagnose and treat many medical conditions, which is why keeping it in excellent working order is so critical to providing the best care possible. Preventative maintenance should ideally be done at least once a year to both examine and test diagnostics. But if you notice signs of trouble, or that something might be amiss, it is important to call and have it evaluated.
