Why franchising?


Radiology (medical imaging) is the cornerstone of medical diagnosis and the first critical step towards good medicine.

Many parties

Many parties (insurance companies, governments, NGO’s, hospital groups, investors) may be interested in setting up and operating state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging centers. However, the challenges involved in such an endeavor are many and may comprise lack of radiological know-how, lack of skilled medical staff, and lack of experience with specific administrative, organizational, technical and infrastructural requirements.
