Patients use technology in their everyday lives, and recognize when orthopedic practices make investments to deliver the best possible care in the shortest amount of time.
In-house 3D imaging not only provides a one-stop-shop experience to your patients, but also is a valuable marketing and education tool that impresses patients and attracts new ones.
Patient referrals to imaging centers may cost valuable time to diagnose often complex patient injuries.
