As a key piece of diagnostic equipment in veterinary practice, it is essential that you look after your ultrasound scanner.

Do you get your ultrasound scanner serviced regularly?

The benefits of regularly servicing your scanner cannot be underestimated. These machines are used in various, diverse and sometimes harsh environments from on farm to in a practice, all of which bring a unique set of challenges for your scanner.

In an era, where vets are investing more money in imaging and ultrasound scanners, we at IMV imaging are here to support you in ensuring you get the best return on your investment.

Our dedicated service department are on hand to ensure that you are kept up and running throughout the year. By having your ultrasound scanner serviced annually, we can ensure that it is in best working condition and fix any minor issues before they turn into something more complicated. If a breakdown was to occur, we offer 24/7 support to help get your equipment working again as soon as possible.

Our team of in- house and field service engineers are highly experienced and can carry out the servicing of your ultrasound scanner in your practice or at our head office.

So, have you ever wondered what an IMV imaging engineer does when carrying out an annual service on your ultrasound scanner?
