Purchasing an ultrasound system for your practice can be a bit over whelming at times as there is a lot to consider. Wether you purchase from us or anther vendor below is a list of ten important things to consider when making your purchase:
Type of ultrasound machine: There are different types of ultrasound machines available, such as portable, handheld, and console models. Consider your needs and usage scenarios to choose the most appropriate type.
Imaging quality: The image quality of the ultrasound machine is crucial, as it determines the accuracy of diagnosis. Look for machines with high-resolution imaging, and consider factors such as frame rate, depth of penetration, and signal-to-noise ratio. With our free consultation we would be happy to help guide you.
Transducer frequency: The frequency of the ultrasound transducer affects the resolution and depth of penetration of the image. Consider your imaging needs and the types of patients you will be examining to choose the appropriate transducer frequency range.
Size of the display: A large display screen makes it easier to view and interpret the ultrasound images. Consider the size of the display and its resolution when making your purchase.
Ease of use: Consider the user-friendliness of the machine, including features such as touchscreen controls, intuitive software, and easy-to-use transducers.
Portability: If you need to move the ultrasound machine from one location to another, consider its portability, weight, and ease of transport. If frequently moving a system consider sticking with a portable system over a console model.
Cost: The cost of an ultrasound machine can vary widely depending on its features, type, and brand. Consider your budget and the features you require to make an informed decision. Our ultrasound consultants will help direct you to options that will best fit your needs within your specified budget.
Warranty and support: Look for ultrasound machines with a warranty and reliable customer support to ensure that you receive assistance if you encounter any problems. If purchasing from Ultrasounds MD we offer both standard and extended warranties.
Service and maintenance: Consider the maintenance requirements of the machine, such as the need for regular servicing and the availability of spare parts. We only sell systems that can be serviced for a minimum of 5 years so you never have to worry about being stuck with equipment that can't be supported.
Training and education: Consider the availability of training and educational resources to help you learn how to operate and interpret ultrasound images effectively. We offer both virtual and onsite training options for all systems we sell.
