MPI to Debut New Products at RSNA 2016 Annual Meeting

November 21, 2016

KANSAS CITY, Mo., and Chicago, Ill, (November 22, 2016) – Medical Positioning, Inc. (MPI), a leading medical diagnostic imaging table manufacturer headquartered in Kansas City, Mo.will be an exhibitor at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting held at McCormick Place in Chicago from November 27 – December 1, 2016.

Located in North Hall B: Booth #7562, representatives from MPI will demonstrate the capabilities of three distinct, ergonomic platforms that help medical professionals perform stereotactic breast biopsies, video swallow studies and various ultrasound and imaging procedures.

The Ultra DBI increases efficiency by transitioning between upright and decubitus positions for stereotactic breast biopsy, allowing for better images and more accurate biopsies. Its bariatric capable patient weight capacity of 500lbs establishes continuity of care.

“Customers appreciate what the Ultra DBI brings to their hospitals and clinics,” said Jorge Cadenas, President and General Manager.  “This ergonomic platform reduces turnover time and increases throughput, even in small exam rooms, with an interchangeable head and foot rest that eliminates the need to reposition the table to accommodate each patient.  But, more important, the Ultra DBI reduces staff injuries and increases staff retention by helping to avoid costs associated with workplace compensation claims.”

The VizaVue, designed for modified barium swallow studies (or video swallow studies), offers a 19”-33” height range that meets the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) low height requirement for patient transfer.  The VizaVue transitions from upright chair to stretcher position for supine patient transfer and features a fold away seat back that provides access for tight imaging spaces.  90° seat rotation accommodates both lateral and A/P views. 

Debuting at RSNA will be the company’s newest product, a revolutionary multi-modality platform that will enhance its users’ departments by minimizing the risk of repetitive stress injury, reducing exam time and improving results.This product is expected to come to market in early 2017. 

Attendees who visit the booth will be entered to win a free HAG Sonographer Chair and will also receive a promo code valid for a free accessory (up to $949 value) with the purchase of selected productsmade by December 16, 2016.

Valve Stress Echocardiography

December 09, 2015

Valve Stress echocardiography (VSE) is increasingly used both within specialist valve clinics and within dedicated VSE services, mandating practical guidance for referral, procedure, reporting and clinical implementation of results. Therefore, a didactic VSE guide was compiled based on current European Society of Cardiology and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association valve disease management guidelines, review of existing evidence, and the authors' extensive experience with VSE. The VSE indications were grouped into 3 categories: symptoms despite nonsevere valve disease, asymptomatic severe valve disease, and valve disease with reduced left ventrical asystolic function. The aim of the test, the type of stress to be used, the sequence of image acquisition, the information to be included in the report, and the implication of the VSE results for clinical management were described for every indication and summarized in user friendly tables.
