Cardiology practices everywhere are adding PET Cardiology to their facilities to help perform Gated Cardiac Perfusion Studies. The recent partnership between Marquis Medical and Wayne Webster, managing director of Diagnostix Plus, offers Cardiology practices the most complete, cost-effective PET Cardiac product on the market.

Together, Diagnostix Plus & Marquis Medical are able to offer a complete turn-key solution ranging from site planning and installation, to physician and technologist training. A perfect example of this is the recent install performed for Valley Cardiology in McAllen, Texas.

Valley Cardiology worked with Wayne Webster to develop a plan to add PET to their Nuclear Medicine Department. The plan was structured to provide a path for Valley Cardiology to follow to success. In just a short time the practice was ready to launch their program and start generating revenue. In charge of the project, Celine Garcia of Valley Cardiology explains:

“With a large operation, such as remodeling the Nuclear Medicine Department to accommodate a PET camera and moving an existing SPECT camera, there are going to be some issues. However, there was always great communication between the staff and myself and the architect. Any questions I had along the way were always answered in timely manner and the staff was professional and helpful. The experience has been positive from all aspects.”

Marquis teams with Diagnostic Plus to provide in-depth post-installation training on operations, applications, and for physicians. Wayne Webster excels at educating the customer/doctors on the benefits of PET Cardiology vs. SPECT (nuclear) Cardiology, and coordinates all technologist and doctor training. This training helps pave the way for a smooth transition. Celine Garcia had this to say about the post installation and training experience at Valley…

“When a question did arise, I called the service numbers and had my question answered. Being able to communicate with the staff at CVIT for technical questions concerning processing has been reassuring. The training experience was painless. The applications staff was thorough in explanation of camera and computer acquisition software.”
