ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- First Source, Inc. announced today that Allied Mobile X-Ray & Ultrasound (AMX), a major provider of diagnostic imaging services in South Florida, has placed a sizable, multi-unit order for its Vision M lightweight portable imaging system. The equipment is ear-marked to fill the company's equipment need towards their expansion into the Tampa, St. Petersburg area. AMX has been in business for over 30 years and services more than 200 skilled nursing homes. In addition to long-term care and other residential facilities, they provide services to more than 2,500 physicians.
The decision to purchase the Vision M was made by AMX after gaining experience with several Vision M units acquired in the past year. "The Vision M has proven its durability, maneuverability and the versatility that we expect from a mobile imaging product," said Eric Amar, President and Owner-Operator of AMX. "Along with excellent image quality, a major consideration in determining which mobile imaging product we chose, was the Vision M's innovative feature that it is a fully integrated system," Amar went on to say.
The Vision M solution includes the Visaris Avanse image acquisition software complemented with a VAREX wireless Cesium detector. The software is integrated with the X-ray tube; this enables the Technologist to set exposure factors from the system's laptop computer rather than the X-ray tube ultimately increasing productivity.
AMX offers an extensive line of portable imaging and monitoring services. "We take pride in the services we offer and are committed to using the best imaging products available in our industry in providing those services," explains Aaron Whitman, Vice President of AMX. "We make it our practice to undergo a rigorous process when it comes to selecting diagnostic equipment at AMX, for the benefit of both the patients and the Company," Whitman continued.
