Hi, I am considering starting an outpatient MSK practice, and was going to start by renting out space from local primary care docs or orthopods or chiro and doing EMGs in their offices, wanted to keep costs low, so was looking into getting a slightly used late model Cadwell machine, or possibly lease one, any input? and hopefully down the line either purchase a used ultrasound machine. any input on where to get good deals for used EMG or MSK ultrasound machines. thanks

Who would be your referring base? The person renting you the space (primary care, orthopod, chiro)? If that were the case, why not just work an agreement where they get a percentage of collections for rent and incidentals? I would be hesitant to buy an US machine the way there is all this gloom and doom about reimbursements for US guided injections in SDN forums.

thanks for the great replies, I was thinking the referring base would start with the person I am renting from. percentage of collections for rent and incidentals sounds like a good idea. as far as working for chiro, no I have no plans to work for a chiro, but maybe see if they could be a potential referral base for EMGs. thanks
