How to Start a Mobile Ultrasound Business?

With the rapid development of microelectronics technology, various types of mobile ultrasound equipment have emerged as the times require, and their applications in the medical and health field are becoming more extensive. Mobile ultrasound is a type of medical ultrasound equipment that combines a mobile phone-sized, easy-to-control host and probe into one, which has the characteristics of small size, light weight and low power consumption. Based on the technology of wireless image transmission, intelligent diagnosis and remote diagnosis become possible. Once the cost-effective handheld ultrasound equipment came out, it was concerned and welcomed by grassroots doctors and clinicians.

Mobile ultrasound is becoming more common as it is a way for doctors to bill patients directly while outsourcing ultrasound activities to outside suppliers.

Ⅰ. What qualifications are required to start mobile ultrasound?

1. Gain industry knowledge

While a background in the field is not required to perform mobile ultrasound, training in diagnostic medical sonography is available through several organizations that offer healthcare-related courses.

2. Secure financing for your business

First, determine your startup expenses by creating a project record of all projected equipment, payroll, travel, fuel, maintenance, rent, and operating costs related to overhead.

Next, explore available financing avenues by making phone calls, sending emails, and designated visits to banks, lenders, and business assistance offices.

You can use your existing savings to start your business or seek out loan, grant or credit card financing. Information about start-up financing assistance is available online and on the government page of your local phone book.

Additionally, local one-stop business assistance offices and small business administration centers are easily accessible in most major cities across the country.

3. Register your business

Choose the type of business that best suits your entrepreneurial goals. Sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, and S corporations are some of the business structures that are available.

Currently, there are no specific local medical licensing requirements for the launch of a mobile ultrasound business. County and city commerce offices can provide extensive information on application fees, business name registration, and zoning restrictions. Information about local government business resource centres is available online, in public libraries and on the government pages of the local telephone directory.
