Meet Todd Lajiness, A Device Servicer Ensuring Cancer Screening is Safe & Effective

Medical imaging scans are an indispensable tool in allowing doctors to find diseases earlier and improve patient outcomes. For the nearly two million Americans who will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone, we must ensure medical devices are working safely and effectively.

If a device fails to perform as intended due to improper servicing, patients are potentially at risk for physical injury or poor-quality images – which could lead to a delayed or missed diagnosis. We rely on medical device servicers to maintain and identify any problems with medical imaging devices.

Meet Todd Lajiness, a field service engineer for HITACHI Medical Systems America, and learn why this issue is so important to your care:

Americans seeking care deserve the best our healthcare system has to offer. Unfortunately, not all servicers are held to the same level of training and regulatory oversight. Imposing accountability on unregulated third-party servicers would be a modest but an essential step towards this shared goal.
