WAUKESHA, Wis. - MedPro Imaging today announced the introduction of MPI ProbeLabs, turn-key ultrasound transducer repair packages featuring state-of-the-art computer-based technology designed to enable major hospitals and networks to perform probe repairs in-house. The company also announced the recent appointment of Brock Brady as Director of Probe Repair Development and the promotion of Joseph Masek to vice president of sales for the company's Ultrasound Probe Repair Division, which was recently launched to offer high quality probe repair services designed to counter a growing emphasis in the industry on probe exchange programs.

Based on proprietary smartspeed (TM) repair technology not previously available in the U.S. market, the turn-key ProbeLab (TM) packages will include state-of-the-art computer-based probe repair devices and processes for fast, consistent repairs. The scalable packages will also include extensive on-site training and on-going support in probe asset management, designed to reduce preventable probe damage and maximize probe life expectancy.

"Looking for ways to lower maintenance costs without negatively impacting the quality of their imaging services, many large hospitals and healthcare networks are shifting more of their ultrasound, CT and MRI system service in-house. However, in-house probe repair has never been an option - until now," said Charles Jahnke, president and CEO of MedPro Imaging. "MPI ProbeLabs is proud to offer scalable, turn-key ProbeLab packages offering a cost-effective alternative to replacing damaged probes by enabling clinical engineering departments to repair the majority of their own probes. In many cases, on-site probe repair will enable sites to put a mission-critical probe back into service the very next day, avoiding costly shipping and loaner fees, and lost revenue due to re-scheduled exams."

Brock's primary responsibility will be the development of new repair techniques, methods and processes, as well as expanding the range of probe models which can be repaired. Prior to joining MPI ProbeLabs, Brock spent seven years with Sonora Medical Systems, which was acquired by Unisyn Medical Technologies. Focusing on ultrasound transducer repair and research and development, Brock was responsible for pioneering many of Sonora's complex probe repair capabilities. He received his initial electronics training in the United States Air Force and received multiple certificates from the Community College of the Air Force.
