EXISTING NUCLEAR MEDICINE IMAGING LABS

REALITY
More stringent regulations and requirements, less reimbursements and higher costs.

RESULT
Many out-patient imaging centers and in-office cardiology imaging services have shut down or are being bought out by larger imaging companies.

FACT
With the right guidance, stringent regulations and requirements can still be met. Outpatient and in-office diagnostic imaging is still profitable and in demand. With some imaging labs shutting down, this means more business for those who remain open and stay in compliance.
