Medrad launches US probe repair

Medrad is expanding its repair service to include selected ultrasound probes. The Warrendale, PA, company's TotalRepair service will repair selected probes, such as transesophageal transducers for echo systems, as well as standard ones. The new offering, provided as part of the company's Multi Vendor Service that covers the repair of imaging peripherals such as MR coils, will not only help healthcare facilities reduce service costs, according to Medrad, but will also mitigate overall financial exposure with a capped, guaranteed "worst-case scenario" price provided upfront.
