Medical Imaging Consultancy Ltd ( MIC ) was founded by Mick Rogers in July 2001. Nick Law went into partnership with Mick in June 2003. As the company continued to grow, Jonathan Briggs joined us in March 2005. Jonathan retired from full time employment during 2014 but still provides us with his knowledge & occasional site visits on a part time basis. In 2014 we welcomed John Groves to the company. John's background in Nuclear Medicine & control systems makes a very useful addition to our capabilities.
MIC have continued to increase the number of service contracts provided to the NHS and private diagnostic imaging companies. A result of this continued success, has been a need to increase our stock of parts and expand our workshop which is now home to six gamma cameras which are used for parts testing and training.
Mick started his career in the early 1980's undertaking a five year apprenticeship with Plessey Radar Systems, working on naval radar systems for the Type 22 Naval Destroyers. His apprenticeship started with one year of intensive training at Houslow where he won the Apprentice of the Year award. He specialised in system test and repair which occasionally included work on board Type 22 Naval Destroyers.
Leaving Plessey after 7 years Mick joined Nodecrest who made Nuclear Medicine workstations. Here he worked in the system test department, testing and repairing Nodecrest's proprietory acquisition pcbs. Nodecrest were the first to use Sun Microsystems hardware which is where Mick learned the Unix operating system. Nodecrest were then acquired by Bartec who also by then
were manufacturing Sun based Nuclear Medicine computers. While with Bartec Mick continued to work in the test department and occasionally did some field work.
In 1992 Mick left Bartec and joined ADAC Laboratories UK Ltd. At this time ADAC's only installed system in the UK was a Genesys Dual head gamma camera at Southampton. Mick worked for ADAC in field service and one of his first jobs was to upgrade the ADAC DEC/RT11 based workstations, installed by Nick Law & Andy Taunton (Taunton Engineering) a few years earlier, with ADAC's
Sun based Nuclear Medicine workstations. ADAC grew substantially over the next 10 years, installing in total about 50 gamma cameras in the UK. During this time Mick also wrote a number of Unix scripts and subsequently become the script expert, specialising in modem based transfer scripts. During Mick's time at ADAC his sterling work was recognised when he received the
European Customer Support Engineer of the Year award.
After Philips acquired ADAC Laboratories in 2000, Mick decided to setup his own company servicing ADAC gamma cameras and their associated workstations. Seven years later MIC service approximately 30 gamma cameras and numerous Sun based Pegasys workstations while also having achieved full ISO9001/13485 certification . In addition to the ADAC Argus and Vertex Classic, MIC now
support ADAC/Philips Forte, Skylight and Transcam systems plus IS2/Positron's PulseCDC cardiac camera. The latest system to be added to the range of systems we support is Spectrum Dynamics D-Spect Cardiac camera.
