New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

"With Genesis, we are not only solidifying our position in PET/CT, SPECT/CT and PET/MR, but we can now provide nationwide service for standalone CT and MR. I'm excited to be able to strengthen and expand our offerings for our customers," said Mark Alvarez, president and CEO of BC Technical.

Robert Dakessian, founder of Genesis Medical Imaging, that he started 15 years ago, informed DOTmed News of the deal right before the new year. He also said he will be helping with the transition.

According to a spokesperson for BC Technical, Genesis will remain in Chicago, meaning BC Technical's corporate offices will be in both Salt Lake City and Huntley, Ill.

In addition, no financial details of the deal are able to be disclosed at this time.

Dekessian said in the statement from BC Technical: "BC Technical is an excellent fit with Genesis. Our management styles and philosophies are the same. We bring operating strengths to each other that make us stronger, more complete and more appealing to our customers. I'm incredibly proud of what we have accomplished, but the time to take Genesis to the next level of performance is now. BC Technical will make sure it happens."
