Portable Ultrasound Machines

This entry was posted in News on by .

So the time has finally come – the capital budget has been approved, you’re getting to replace that ultrasound machine which was probably made long before the days of AOL informing that – “You’ve Got Mail”. Or maybe your space has finally been approved, and you’ve been blessed with opening a practice of your own. Either way, you know your space is limited. With all the options at your disposal, the first two questions are clear: do we go with a portable ultrasound machine or console – and, where do we get it from? The answers may surprise you, and USC can help.

First, let’s address why a portable ultrasound machine is always a good fit:

  • A portable ultrasound machine, even one mounted on a mobile cart, will have a smaller footprint than console. Today’s medical professionals are constantly tasked with getting more results out of less time/material – and this includes your workspace.
  • Flexibility to move room to room provides an ease of use for all situations. More usage means more revenue.
  • Portable = less heat, less noise. So it’s great for the energy conscious among us, but less heat also means less wear & tear as well.
  • Less hardware, more software. Portable units contain up to 60% less hardware than consoles, and much of what drives the system is software. Because of this, they are less expensive when it comes to preventative, and corrective maintenance. No more putting off that peace of mind service contract!

Benefits of having Portable Ultrasound Machines

And speaking of expense, let’s address what has become a common misconception in the Industry. The belief is that obtaining the above benefits, brings with it a direct and negative impact on the image quality. For years, portable ultrasound units just didn’t have the power of full sized consoles, disqualifying portable as an option for those who need that near perfect image. Thanks to our latest OEM partnership with Alpinion Medical, this is no longer the case.

About USC Corp.

With USC’s near 20 years of experience in diagnostic ultrasound service and sales- it is our professional opinion that Alpinion’s line of portable ultrasound systems has raised the bar, becoming the exception to the rule for dynamic image quality in portable ultrasound.

Alpinion E-Cube – Portable Ultrasound Unit

The Alpinion E-Cube i7 laptop style, portable ultrasound unit is as rugged as it is robust, using titanium material in place of the common plastics used by other manufacturers. It boasts the largest monitor of any portable unit in the industry, and encompasses a full line of lightweight – high density transducers for all imaging applications.

The Alpinion Minisono, is the full diagnostic answer to the handheld ultrasound bedside units that have recently entered the market. Armed with just a tablet and transducer, point of care ultrasound has never been made easier with outstanding image quality AND the diagnostic tools to run a full report.

USC’s partnership with Alpinon Medical

USC’s partnership with Alpinon Medical means you can rest assured that obtaining a new portable ultrasound machine comes with all of the benefits, and none of the drawbacks. Contact us today to set up your free demonstration!

Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month 2019

This entry was posted in News and tagged on by .

October is Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month (MUAM)!  The purpose of MUAM is to encourage the public to learn more about ultrasound and how it is increasingly being recognized as a vital medical tool.  It also provides ultrasound professionals a chance to celebrate their profession.

Six ultrasound organizations—the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI), the Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) and the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE)—join together every year to sponsor Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month (MUAM).

Here at USC, we recognize and appreciate the continuing hard work and dedication of sonographers.  We support their continuing education and career development by hosting workshops and events right here in our Ronkonkoma headquarters.

We invite you to check out our diverse schedule of continuing education events and welcome you to come and network with fellow sonographers.

Ultrasound Solutions Corp Expands with Move into New Headquarters

This entry was posted in News on by .

Ultrasound Solutions Corp. recently moved into a new, modern building in Ronkonkoma, Long Island, NY, fueled by their nationwide expansion.

Whether it’s a child’s first time in a new bedroom, a new couple starting their lives together, or a business that’s grown out of a basement, nothing quite matches the excitement and emotion of entering your new home. That odd feeling under your feet of new carpet settling in, the smell of new wood and fresh paint; your new place breeds the wonder of memories that will be created – the endless possibilities of growth and new opportunity. The team at Ultrasound Solutions Corp. (USC) are blessed to be experiencing this phenomena at their new state of the art facility in Ronkonkoma, Long Island, NY!

Nat Romeo, the owner and President of Ultrasound Solutions Corp., began his journey to where he is now almost 20 years ago out of the basement of his house, with a passion for success fueled by the two key factors he embodies like no other – faith, and hard work. Today, Romeo and his team of diagnostic ultrasound machine specialists & consultants start their day walking through the doors of a newly built-out 11,000 square foot facility, host to the only ultrasound depot and ultrasound probe repair facility in New York.

Every inch of Suite 123 has been meticulously designed for his employees to make the most out of every moment they spend here. Any company worth its weight in salt will provide the employees with the tools and environment to be the best at what they do. Now those employees have a facility to mirror the heart and soul they put into the business.

USC also has a fully furnished training room for up to 30 people in the efforts of hosting applications and biomedical training, as well as courses to provide CME credits for ultrasound sonographers. Romeo’s vision for the new space is to create an environment of transparency. Day by day, invitations are going out to the customers that have helped his business grow and achieve the dream he’s living today. Romeo wants the medical industry and those who make it what it is, to understand that in the days of Amazon and DotMed, USC is a brick and mortar facility with real people who have a passion for the craft.

If you find yourself in the Suffolk County area of Long Island, NY, then please stop in for a visit at 101-123 Comac Street, Suite 123 in Ronkonkoma (on 9th Avenue). The team at USC is there to discuss your diagnostic ultrasound & ultrasound equipment needs, and how their value proposition will help you obtain the best service in the industry at a fair price! Gourmet coffee is on the house.
