Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) September 10, 2007 –
Nuclear Medicine Professionals, Inc. (NMPI) is pleased to announce that due to high demand for services in North and Central Florida, the company has completed the purchase of an additional portable cardiac SPECT camera and is in the process of putting the finishing touches on another Portable Cardiac Imaging Unit. Company projections call for an additional Unit to be in place by the end of the first quarter of next year.
NMPI’s growing fleet of Portable Cardiac Imaging Units allows for its continued expansion and cements its domination of the in-office cardiac imaging market in North and Central Florida.
"With the addition of this new equipment we can provide services to primary health care providers in a much expanded area and service them more frequently," says John Millett, President of Nuclear Medicine Professionals. "With our service, there is no longer any need for physicians to refer their thalium stress test patients to hospitals or out-patient imaging centers.” Mr. Millett cites a recent survey his company conducted in which patients expressed an overwhelming preference for having testing done in their primary care physician’s office as opposed to a hospital setting. Mr. Millett also points to a number of studies that show that when diagnostic testing is done in the primary physician’s office, continuity of care is enhanced and positive patient outcomes are increased.
Each of NMPI’s cardiac SPECT cameras is transported in custom designed medical vans that are dispatched to physician offices throughout North and Central Florida. Each Portable Cardiac Imaging Unit includes the SPECT camera, stress ECG, NMPI engineered patent-pending portable hot lab, a licensed Nuclear Medicine Technologist, Medical Assistant, and all necessary medical supplies. Each Unit carries its own Radioactive Materials License and is routinely inspected by the State for quality assurance.
"Now that Congress has decided not to revisit Stark, we see demand sky-rocketing," says John Millett. "We are receiving inquiries from as far away as Kentucky and Maine. NMPI’s growth over the next several years is virtually limitless.”
