In this blog, we aim to demystify the process and ease concerns regarding the acquisition of a UTC System. The benefits of owning a UTC System are clear; however, financial constraints such as upfront costs and concerns about return on investment are common obstacles.
UTC imaging enjoys significant recognition in both academic and practical environments, a testament to its efficacy and value. This is evident from the multitude of presentations, publications, and posters about UTC imaging. For instance, the International Scientific Tendinopathy Symposium (ISTS 2016) featured more than 10 UTC-imaging presentations and around a dozen posters. Developed in equine practice, UTC imaging is now widely acknowledged in human medicine as well.
We understand that the cost of investment in a UTC System can be intimidating. However, we have explored several alternatives that can make ownership of a UTC System a reality. For example, leasing options are available, with monthly payments ranging between €1,000 and €1,200 for a 5-year lease, subject to the country and the creditworthiness of the lessee.
The UTC System has proven beneficial in clinical applications besides academic studies. Its ability to detect minute changes makes it a valuable tool in diagnosing, staging lesions, guiding rehabilitation and load management. What’s more, UTC imaging is patient-friendly and user-friendly; a scan, including skin preparation and analysis, can be completed within 5-10 minutes.
The financial viability of owning a UTC System is further supported by the typical fees charged for clinical cases, which are comparable to those for an MRI. In the veterinary market, the benefits are even greater as the system is portable, quick to deploy, and operates at about 20% of the cost of an MRI. Additionally, the visually clear and understandable images generated by the system often lead to repeat use and client contact, improving the customer experience and increasing turnover.
Integrating UTC imaging into your equine medical services offers a dual benefit: it elevates the standard of care you provide to your equine patients and simultaneously acts as a catalyst for practice growth. As clients recognize the advanced diagnostic capabilities of UTC imaging, they become active advocates, often referring others to your clinic. This enhanced service not only positions your practice as a leader in equine healthcare but also transforms the UTC System from a mere diagnostic tool into a significant contributor to your revenue stream.
Beyond clinical use, UTC imaging users often establish contracts with high-profile trainers and stables to run injury prevention programs, keeping expensive horses in competition throughout the season. These contracts provide a predictable income, contributing to the financial coverage of the UTC System.
