As November is Diabetes Awareness Month, we thought we’d take a moment to talk about neuropathic pain management. The American Diabetes Association reports that approximately half of all people who have diabetes experience some sort of nerve damage. Diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States, which will increase the number of patients seeking pain management.
Neuropathic Pain Management: Preparing Your Practice for a Spike In Demand
C-arms and ultrasounds are both valuable diagnostic imaging equipment to have available when patients present complaining of neuropathic pain. This pain manifests most often in the extremities and soft tissues, areas that can be difficult to assess properly without the right diagnostic imaging equipment.
In order to meet increasing patient demand and minimize wait time for diagnostic testing, it’s essential to have an adequate amount of imaging equipment easily accessible to your practice. Unfortunately, c-arms and ultrasound systems are very expensive items when purchased directly from the manufacturer. Choosing refurbished medical diagnostic imaging equipment is often the more cost-effective option.

That’s only a few weeks away! At this time, it is extremely uncertain that the $500,000 deduction limit will be extended into 2014.
