May 25, 2021 - KA Imaging has signed a distribution agreement in the U.S. with Alpha Imaging. Hospitals, medical facilities and practices from 14 states can now acquire the Reveal 35C single exposure, portable, digital dual-energy subtraction digital radiography (DR) X-ray detector through Alpha Imaging, one of the largest U.S. distributors of medical imaging equipment.
“Our partnership with Alpha is a big step towards KA Imaging’s vision to bring innovative X-ray everywhere," said Robert Moccia, VP of sales for KA Imaging. "Alpha Imaging’s 30+ year track record of providing Imaging equipment to some of the most prestigious healthcare institutions in the U.S. gives KA Imaging the access and credibility to excite the market with our technology and ultimately improve patient care.”
“The addition of KA Imaging’s Reveal 35C adds yet another advanced imaging technology to our robust portfolio of medical imaging offerings," explained Michael Perrico, CEO of Alpha Imaging.
