Two options available: (1) PM Only Preventative Maintenance, where GE covers the servicing, but any parts required are to be paid for by client, this is a lower cost model, but the customer takes the risk of parts cost. (2) Fully inclusive, higher cost, but client is fully covered for service and all parts required.
Service approach includes: (1) Initial Remote Connection, where the client calls a call center in region in local language. GE will remotely diagnose and talk the client through potential fixes, or where a sufficiently available Broadband connection is available, will connect direct to the machine to effect an on-line repair; (2) Field Engineer Visit, where after the above process a site visit is required; (3) Depot Return, where the unit is small and portable (e.g., ECG unit), client returns it to the GE service center for repair and return
Printed user and service manuals will be provided with each piece of equipment.
There is a 30% Advance Payment and 70% payment on shipping. Payments are to be made by Bank Direct Payment.
Diagnostic medical ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create video images of the inside of the body. These images are used for assessing the structure and function of organs, for investigating gynecologic abnormalities, and for fetal profiling. Ultrasound scanners transmit short bursts of sound into a patient's body and analyze the returning echoes to determine their amplitude, the depth of the reflecting structures, and the direction from which the echoes are returning. This information is processed and then used to generate video images that can be viewed live or recorded and played back.
Point-of-Care (POC) ultrasound machines can be cart-based, laptop-based, or handheld. Therefore, they all have a small footprint and can be easily moved around a healthcare facility. POC ultrasound is often used by a treating physician at an office or the patient’s bedside, as opposed to the patient being referred to an imaging specialist. They also offer a variety of optional application-specific transducers: curved linear-array transducers, primarily used for abdominal and obstetric applications; flat linear-array transducers, primarily used for superficial and vascular applications; sector—also referred to as phased—transducers, primarily used for cardiac applications.
