WE’VE MADE EQUIPMENT ACQUISITION EASY
Did you know that Brown’s Medical Imaging can source equipment financing for you?
Why should I finance my equipment acquisition?
- To conserve capital. It is not necessary to commit significant amounts of capital to an equipment project. With financing as an option, your capital stays put, for any planned or unseen future needs you may have.
- To preserve your existing credit lines. Don’t compromise your current credit lines by adding an equipment purchase that may require additional security. An equipment financing package will help keep those credit lines available for other uses as needed.
- To “pay as you go” and let the equipment pay for itself. Your new equipment purchase will help generate periodic revenues that will help cover the scheduled payments of your finance package.
And don’t forget the Section 179 deduction available to you in 2017. This is an easy-to-use tax incentive that allows you to deduct a portion of your equipment purchase price, up to $500,000, from your gross income!
We are committed to working with you to find the perfect solution to deliver a creative financing structure and flexible terms. Ask your Brown’s Medical Imaging Sales Professional to help you with any Imaging Equipment financing needs that you are interested in.

NEUSOFT LEADS THE WAY
If your CT system is not NEMA XR-29 compliant, you will be subject to reduced reimbursement starting in 2016! What is NEMA XR-29? It is a dose monitoring system that defines standard attributes required for dose management and mitigation (along with XR-25; XR-26; and XR-27). NEMA XR-29 includes four key attributes of CT equipment that enable optimization or management of radiation dose delivery while also providing high quality medical images:
• DICOM Radiation Dose Structured Reporting (RDSR)
• CT Dose Check
• Automatic Exposure Controls (AEC)
• Pediatric and Adult Reference Protocols
The NEUSOFT NeuViz 16 and 64 platforms are fully compliant with NEMA XR-29. For more information about NEMA XR-29, and the NEUSOFT family of Computed Tomography products, call us and we will be glad to assist you.
Stage2 Meaningful Use Guide for Eligible Professionals

Stage2 Meaningful Use ImagingResults
MEANINGFUL USE-STAGE 2
As of today, many “eligible professionals” or EPs, are either actively using an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, or are well on their way to incorporating a system into their clinical practice. This is part of the Meaningful Use initiative that we have been hearing about for the last 3 or 4 years.
Now that Meaningful Use Part 2 is upon us, it is not enough to just own and use a certified EHR in your practice. Providers now have to start demonstrating that they are using their EHR in ways that can positively impact the care they are providing to their patients. Stage 2 includes many new objectives to improve patient care through better clinical decision support, care coordination, and patient engagement. There are 17 CORE objectives, and 6 MENU objectives laid out in the Stage 2 requirements plan that we should all examine in detail.
The first CORE objective provides for using computerized order entry (CPOE) for medication, laboratory, and radiology orders. For the radiology order entry element of this objective, Brown’s Medical Imaging can help you incorporate this into your x-ray environment easily and cost effectively.
The third MENU objective states that imaging (x-ray) results must be accessible through the EHR, the electronic health system that you use in your practice. Brown’s Medical Imaging has a solution for you here, as well.
Contact us to find out how we can help you navigate through the Meaningful Use Part 2 requirements related to medical imaging.
SELENIA DIMENSIONS BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS SYSTEM
With Selenia Dimensions and the power of breast tomosynthesis, you can see lesions with a clarity never before possible. In fact, breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis has a higher cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone. Studies show that masses, distortions, and asymmetric densities are better visualized with Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis technology. And, using this technology gives Radiologists the confidence needed to significantly reduce their recall rates!
Take the lead in breast imaging by offering this cutting-edge technology to the women of your community today!
