Healthcare Industry News: ASTRO
News Release - October 30, 2006
Oncology Services International Lowers the Cost Barrier for Image Guided Radiation Therapy EquipmentRAMSEY, N.J., Oct. 30 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Oncology Services International announces high quality refurbished pre-owned linear accelerators are now available fully configured to deliver Image Guided Radiation Therapy (or IGRT). Oncology Services International was among the first to bring IMRT solutions to the pre-owned market, and now in time for the major symposium of ASTRO in Philadelphia, the company has packaged IGRT solutions for many of the quality linear accelerators in stock. Physicians are invited to Booth 839 at ASTRO to learn more.
For many years the company has invested in providing the inventory, resources and skilled staff, to turn upside down the notion of used medical equipment in the radiation oncology field. The latest capital investment at the Lakewood N.J. headquarters of the Equipment Division has been a huge concrete bunker designed for the efficient testing of the highest energy X- rays used in medical therapies. The full beam testing regime further distances Oncology Services International from all other pre-owned linear accelerator suppliers by providing vital quality assurance before dispatch to a customer's clinic.
Tony Richardson, Director of Marketing and Sales for Oncology Services International said, "We are determined to continue the tradition of providing the technologies that patients deserve at a price which makes them economically viable in the local community, even when that community may be too small for 'big healthcare groups.' We make our prices right by utilizing a pre-owned core, but there is nothing second hand about the quality and performance delivered. Our organization stands by the reliability resulting from our investment in the products we sell."
