I am excited to be able to provide some of the interviews we filmed at the American Association of Bovine Practitioners that took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2013.  The first of such interviews we are providing is one of our very good friends and a great supporter of ours, Dr. Jill Colloton. 

Dr. Colloton recently taught a basic bovine reproduction class for E.I. Medical Imaging in Abbotsford, Wisconsin, and it was very successful.  We are glad to have Dr. Colloton as a supporter and we would love for you to support her too.

We continue to have education and training regarding the use of our durable and portable ultrasound systems throughout the year, and in nearly every region of the country.  If you are interested in taking a basic bovine reproduction course, we can register you for an upcoming class. if you are interested in scheduling a class with Dr. Colloton we highly recommend her services.  You can visit her website at Bovine Services, LLC.

At E.I. Medical Imaging School's In For Summer!

Posted by Jim Turner on Thu, Apr 17, 2014 @ 10:30 AM

EIMI Education and TrainingEducation and Training is a big part of what we like to offer our customers here at E.I. Medical Imaging.  It is important to us to offer the latest information in the use of our portable and durable veterinary ultrasounds.  We recently had an offering of a basic bovine reproduction class in Springfield/Colombia, Missouri, on April 10.  I have heard those that attended learned a great deal about how to use their ultrasound.

We are offering another class this summer for those interested in learning more about the use of their Ibex® Portable Ultrasound on June 12-13, 2014, in Bridgeport, Nebraska.  If you are interested in attending this class and learning more about bovine reproduction and how to use your ultrasound, you can register today. Our class in Nebraska is taught by Dr. Craig DeMuth and he will be instructing on Ultrasound Reproduction with a classroom lecture, and then the following day will be on-site in the field for some great hands on experience. We are also providing 9 hours of RACE approved CE credit to those veterinarians in attendance. 

learning ultrasoundThe class is limited to the first 8 (eight) participants. If you don't get registered soon you may miss out on this great opportunity. We will take the first 8 registrants that have paid for the course. Get your reserved spot today by filling out the form and registering as soon as possible. The cost of the class is $750US and you can pay easily right from the registration. You will be prompted for payment during the registration process.  I also know we are offering special discounts and special pricing for the classes if you purchase an Ibex® Portable Ultrasound.  Check with your sales representative or even arrange for a free demo of your unit. They can help you buy your Ibex® Portable Ultrasound and get you registered for a class!

We are adding other training classes and learning opportunities so be sure to check back often to see what we have to offer.  If you see a class in the future you want to attend, it's not to early to guarantee your spot with a registration.  If you don't see a class in your area or if you want to have us teach a class in your part of the country, we would be happy to work with you and see how we can arrange a class closer to your area.

New Age Education and Training For The Portable Ultrasound

Posted by Jim Turner on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 @ 09:40 AM

digital education and trainingBusinesses are having to change the way they do things to keep up with the digital world.  We live in an age now where snail mail, print advertising, good old fashion face-to-face meetings and a handshake are a thing of the past.  We continue to evolve in business with the invention of technology and how we conduct our day-to-day business transactions.  At E.I. Medical Imaging, we are not much different in the way we approach our business.  We too must adapt to the way of the future.  We are using social media and technology to provide up to the minute information about our products and services.  Our Ibex® Portable Ultrasound Systems' software can be updated with a few strokes of a keypad on your computer and online, and we have many other technologically advanced features too numerous for this post.

One of the things we intend to implement for the future of E.I. Medical Imaging and our Ibex® Family of Ultrasound Systems and accessories is education and training.  It would be difficult to arrange a location where we could invite the hundreds and thousands of our customers and users to gather and allow us to prepare a lecture series and allow you the user to have hands on education and training of our device. We can do this on a small level and we would be happy to oblige this and will have these types of education training opportunities in the future.  Right now there are a handful of companies that are trying to accomplish this, but it is an uphill battle and a costly endeavor.  If you want to be trained in the use of ultrasound it is going to take an inordinate amount time, which we all know means money, and it will cost you dearly monetarily to attend.  With the use of technology and the use of the digital world we can change the way you spend your time and your money. 

At E.I. Medical Imaging we are currently working on a way to decrease your time and the money you spend to get the training you need to be successful in your practice as a veterinarian. This all falls in line with our idea that "Helping Your Practice Makes Perfect Sense."  Stay tuned in here for future announcements about our education and training.  We will soon have ways you can get the education and training you need for use of our equipment and a way to help you with your veterinary practice.

Of note and as a persuasive point to what I have discussed here, Dan Grooms, President of the AABP has his November message that has has provided.  The message is provided via YouTube, a use of video I applaud.  The message is simple about the fate of the Enyclopedia Britannica and how it failed to adapt to the evolving world.  We as businesses should also learn to adapt.  I hope the message is clear.

Never Before Seen Pricing On The Ibex Portable Ultrasound Systems Ends Today!

Posted by Jim Turner on Mon, Sep 30, 2013 @ 09:37 AM

AspenTreesSeptember is nearly a memory now being the last day of the month. It reminds of song lyrics from The Brothers Four in "Try To Remember":

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.

The song reminds me of slower times but that has not been the case this year.  September has been exceptionally busy here at E.I. Medical Imaging. As I look back on the month it has been a very busy month.  This was my first Summer here and as we enter into Fall it has not been uneventful with learning all about a new company, the flooding we have had in Colorado, we have had some exciting times at the AABP show in Milwaukee. More specifically, we launched our latest campaign on special pricing for our Ibex Portable Ultrasound Systems on September 1. The special pricing and packages have been going on for the month and those specials proved to many to be the best deals ever seen here at our company. We have been busy filling orders and taking calls and providing information. In fact, if you are reading this on September 30, 2013, you have until the end of the day to make an order! The sale pricing will come to an end today and like the Fall season here in Colorado we get to enjoy the explosive colors of our trees turning in the mountains but it too has to come to an end.

Looking ahead to October, we have National Pork Month and we are running a special for all you swine veterinarians and producers.  We have a a deal for you to upgrade your Bantams or other systems to a new Ibex® Lite package. Contact us to see how you can get into the October Pork Special.

I hope you too have had a great September and I hope you remember when the grass was green, the grain yellow and I hope your harvest is plentiful!

E. I. Medical Imaging Participates in Veterinary Training Course

Posted by Jim Turner on Wed, Aug 28, 2013 @ 08:16 AM

Chute side ultrasoundAs part of our current campaign to help with education and training of the veterinarian and the livestock producer, E. I. Medical Imaging is taking its durable portable ultrasound on the road in Nebraska to educate veterinarians on the use of its Ibex® Customizable Extension or as we refer to the accessory for the Ibex® Portable Ultrasound, the I.C.E.®  The title of the course  scheduled on September 26, 2013 is "Extension Arm Ultrasound Pregnancy Testing and Fetal Aging Course". The following press release describes more fully the training course and the logistics:

September 26, 2013 – NORTH PLATTE, NE

The University of Nebraska West Central Research and Extension Center in cooperation with Repro-Scan, E.I. Medical Imaging, and BCF Technology will be hosting a Bovine Reproductive Ultrasound for Veterinarians course to provide hands-on, in-depth instruction in the use of ultrasound for bovine reproductive exams. This workshop will focus on utilizing “extension arm” ultrasound technique and fetal aging.

This course will be of interest to veterinarians who wish to learn more about extension arm ultrasound pregnancy testing, develop fetal aging skills, incorporate fetal aging into their bovine practices and prevent injuries associated with palpation.  Each delegate will have an opportunity to work with 3 different makes of portable bovine ultrasound equipment.

The course will be held, September 26th, 2013 at the research center just south of North Platte, NE beginning at 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Course tuition will be $300 per person with limited enrollment. 6 hours of CE credit has been applied for.

E.I. Medical Imaging Goes Back To School

Posted by Jim Turner on Fri, Aug 16, 2013 @ 12:02 PM

back to schoolMany of us here at E.I. Medical Imaging have kids and we are all gearing up for them to head back to school.  My kids were not excited at the idea that summer vacation was over and they were lamenting about having to wake up early to get ready for school. I quickly reminded them that they did not have to wake up extra early to do chores such as milking cows before school and I think they realized at that point it was falling on deaf ears.  Nonetheless they headed back to a season of learning and that is what we here at EIMI are aiming to do for our current customers and potential customers--teaching them all about the benefits of ultrasound.  

If you are a livestock producer or veterinarian, portable ultrasound can be a huge benefit to your business and your bottom line.  If any of you are right now asking yourself "How?", you are not alone. We aim to answer that very question in the coming weeks and mDr. Erika Wiermanonths ahead with a series of webinars, seminars, how-to videos and eBooks. If you are here reading our blog or have followed along on Facebook and Twitter, you know that we are putting information here and there for you to read and use for your business.  We hope to expand that to the other areas I mentioned.

One of the initiatives we will be implementing over the next few months is our education and training programs prepared and supervised by our very own staff veterinarian, Dr. Erika Wierman.  Dr. Wierman has provided us with an outline of the areas where ultrasound can benefit all practitioners, from bovine, to equine, to small ruminants and companion animals.  We look forward to the program as it develops further.


Our first look into the webinar series will be an informative talk our President, Chas Maloy likes to call "Buttonology". This is a rundown of how to use the Ibex® Portable Ultrasound System from turning on the machine, to recording images, to how you can change your settings and many other basic instructions on the operation of the Ibex® Pro and the Ibex® Lite.  Pete Temple, our service manager, knows the workings of the Ibex® Portable Ultrasound System like none other and he will be on hand to teach what he knows, and more importantly will be responding to customer questions and providing information related to your feedback.  Once we have set the date we will be inviting all of our current Ibex® customers and those interested in how our system works to take some time to really see how easy our the Ibex® is to use and how it can help you with your business.

Some of our other educational topics and items we plan to have as training are, Ultrasound 101, veterinary topics such as Fetal Viability, Fetal Sexing, calf lung checks to ovarian and follicular dynamics. We even want to provide a few topics like business marketing and financing your equipment!  If there is a specific topic or area of training you would like to learn more about as it relates to using the Ibex® ultrasound in your business or practice, we would love to entertain your suggestions.  In the meantime, if you are ready to learn, welcome back to school!
