Oneonta, NY (PRWEB) May 3rd, 2012- Medical Coaches Inc (est. 1949), a specialty vehicle manufacturer,  (www.medcoach.com ), recently delivered the first-of-its-kind for the United States, Siemens SOMOTOM® Definition AS 64-Slice CT mobile trailer to United Imaging Services, LLC for mobile operation in the Virginia region.  

Geoffrey Smith, President of Medical Coaches said that his company had to pass a very intense certification process with Siemens engineers. Medical Coaches is currently the only certified Mobile Siemens SOMOTOM® Definition AS 64-Slice manufacturer in the United States.

Medical Coaches custom trailer platform has consistently passed rigorous testing for “site-to-site” CT alignment that demands less than or equal to .002 inches of deflection per Medical Coaches V.P. of Engineering, Richard Mattice. Shock and vibration, electrical, ergonomics and gantry mount testing were also part of the certification process.

Both Siemens and United Imaging Services are excited about putting this versatile mobile CT system into operation
