VCG Imagen was founded in 1992 to provide seriousness, capability and responsibility in the Argentine Diagnostic Imaging market.

We work to meet the customers necessity in used and new Diagnostic Imaging Equipment.

There are several reseller in Argentine. They sell Diagnostic Equipment but they lack the know - how for the maintenance and there for they cannot offer an efficient post - sale service.

Most of them do never comply with the delivery time agreed with the client. They usually delay the installations, too causing economic damage to the customer and great disappointment.

Our Personal background in the Diagnostic Imaging Market was our strongest point to start this business.

We want our business to be recognized as the most serious and responsible as well as that of the highest technical quality. Because of that we are in the process to get the ISO 9002 to our customer support department.

The customers satisfaction with our post - sale service is as important for us as the sale itself. So we are working hard on trying to meet our customers' requirements in all aspects. We also give technical support and training to the doctor as when they request it.

Our Company was pioneer in this country to introduce the capture, compression, storage and high-speed transmission of photographic-quality video Image, and systems to measurement bone mineral density with CT (QCT).

About above we mentioned, we are actually recognize how ones of the Company more deeply involved in the High level of technical research and knowledge.

To state it in a few words:

We want Total Quality concepts to lead our business.
