COMPANY OVERVIEW

Global Holdings in conjunction with Vital Imaging Partners is a leader in the most innovative diagnostic technologies, focusing on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). With research-based advancements in diagnostic equipment we serve a diverse set of patient needs including those of obese, geriatric, claustrophobic and pediatric patients. With our sophisticated technology we are able to provide patients with the most comfortable and convenient diagnostic experience. At the same time this superior technology provides unparalleled diagnostic accuracy and validity, enabling radiologists to rule out pre-existing conditions as well as isolating current injuries for the most practical, least invasive methods of treatment resulting in drastically reduced recovery periods. Medically unnecessary surgeries are often over-prescribed becoming very costly and involving life changing and potentially life threatening risks. Our equipment provides the highest quality images, using traditional, weight bearing and multi positional MRI techniques as well as CT scan, Ultrasound, X-Ray and Shock Wave Therapy. At Vital Imaging we manage and operate our own facilities conveniently located statewide and offer transportation for those who need it. Vital Imaging accepts referrals from all doctors directly, eliminating the need for third parties and allowing us to pass those savings to our clients.
