Busy healthcare facilities often need to replace or repair transducers. Use of a damaged transducer may yield inaccurate results or a missed diagnosis. When transducers are revised or changed using methods or materials outside of OEM specifications, there are potential impacts to image quality and subsequent clinical outcomes. For instance, use of materials that are not the original OEM array and lens material for a repair may cause the transducer to not perform to its fullest potential and diagnostic performance. Our Siemens Healthineers Certified Repaired Transducers (SCTs) conform to Siemens Healthineers standards and Siemens Healthineers OEM specifications. No other repair vendor has access to Siemens Healthineers OEM materials or OEM standards.
When your transducers need service, it’s tempting to explore the lowest cost solution for repair or replacement. But on-going innovation in transducer design has increased the complexity in repairing an ultrasound transducer. Therefore, careful consideration should be made when selecting your transducer repair strategy in order to ensure continued image quality, patient safety, and diagnostic confidence.
Siemens Healthineers offers trustworthy repaired transducers using certified OEM parts.
