PRESS RELEASE: Vascular Vein Centers Secures GE Healthcare Point of Care Ultrasound To Support Patients with Premier Technology and Care
Vascular Vein Centers equip all seven Central Florida facilities with
two models of GE Healthcare ultrasound equipment
ORLANDO, FL – November 11, 2019 – Vascular Vein Centers announced today that it has secured the latest ultrasound technology for diagnostic imaging from GE Healthcare, as part of its ongoing commitment to delivering the best possible diagnostic technology for its patients in all of its seven Central Florida locations.
Vascular Vein Centers has acquired eleven GE Healthcare LOGIQ S7 as well as four portable GE Healthcare LOGIQ e.
“This partnership truly represents an investment in the patients who put their trust in us,” said Mike Perry, General Manager, Vascular Vein Centers. “This newly acquired ultrasound equipment provides our sonographers and clinicians with features to help improve ultrasound imaging quality for optimal patient care and outcomes.”
For example, both the LOGIQ S7 and LOGIQ e allow for customized scanning presets, which saves time for the thirteen registered vascular technologists, who work between all of their Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) accredited facilities. Such presets are unique in the diagnostic ultrasound marketplace and will allow for additional time with each patient.
Additionally, by standardizing its equipment across all facilities, Vascular Vein Centers creates convenient and efficient information flow between its clinicians. A patient need only visit one center to be scanned, and the images will be available to all Vascular Vein Centers clinicians which improves continuity of care for care collaboration.
“GE Healthcare is pleased to work with Vascular Vein Centers to help optimize the patient experience,” said Greg Miller, GE Healthcare Point of Care Ultrasound General Manager for United States and Canada.
One of the leading causes for leg pain, swelling and discomfort at any age is varicose veins, caused by vein disease. Sometimes varicose veins are unsightly but often cannot be visualized from the skin surface, acting as a “hidden” cause. These signs and symptoms can be devastating for an active lifestyle and make daily tasks difficult. For almost 20 years, the vein specialists at Vascular Vein Centers (VVC) have concentrated on providing patients comprehensive education, diagnosis, care and treatment emphasizing healthy legs for a healthy life. Vascular Vein Centers has seven Central Florida locations dedicated to treating the whole spectrum of vein disease using the newest state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive techniques to provide patients with immediate relief and long-lasting results. VVC’s vein specialists work closely with patients to fully understand the cause of the uncomfortable signs and symptoms they are experiencing. Using ultrasound technology, VVC’s IAC accredited vascular lab offers cutting-edge vascular imaging services to diagnose vein disease and/or differentiate vein disease from other causes of pain and discomfort. The team of vascular experts at VVC focuses on helping patients understand the vest vein treatments and lifestyle changes necessary for looking and feeling healthy over the long-run. Locations: Orlando, Lake Mary, Waterford Lakes, Kissimmee, Davenport/Haines City, The Villages and Rockledge/Viera. Visit online at BestVeinTreatment.com or on Facebook.
