Ultrasound Transducer Repair Division

October 5, 2010 – A new ultrasound transducer repair division has been launched by an ultrasound systems provider, based on proprietary repair technology not previously available in the U.S. market. The repair service is designed to counter a growing emphasis in the industry on probe exchange programs.

MedPro Imaging will offer computer-based transducer repair services using state-of-the-art repair technology. The company estimates that transducer repair costs generally range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, with an average of about $1,500 on a standard transducer and an average of $5-8,000 for transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) transducers. The average replacement cost for a standard probe ranges from $5,000 for a refurbished probe to $14,000 for a new probe and $14,000-20,000 for TEE replacement probes.

Semi-automatic lesion identification: (A) Manual ROI indication. In blue, it is possible to observe the axes that cross the lesion manually delineated by the radiologist on a plane of the MPR. The intensity of the lesion boundary (estimated) is represented with a red outline. (B) Additional axes can be dragged onto other orthogonal MPR views. From left to right, it is possible to observe the initial long axis outlined by the radiologist and the 2D contours on the axial, coronal and sagittal views of the lesion used as a starting point for the RPM algorithms. (C) Resulting 3D contour of the lesion (in blue).
