StephenIn a world where technologies are constantly evolving and maturing it is important to have a relationship with experienced physicists who understand and can meet your needs rapidly and effectively.

Foxfire Scientific will effectively communicate with you and your technologists to ensure that your medical practice is operating equipment that is not only safe for your patients, but performs its functions properly and at optimal efficiency.

The first responsibility of the medical physicist is to the patient – to ensure that the programs are in place to facilitate the production of quality diagnostic images consistent with the available technology and which optimize safety (including radiation, mechanical, and electrical) for the patient.

AAPM Report No. 42, The Role Of The Clinical Medical Physicist In Diagnostic Radiology

At Foxfire Scientific, we view this as our mission. To ensure the safety of the patient, the technologist and other staff members, and the general public, is our paramount goal. We accomplish this through competent provision of a wide variety of diagnostic- and medical nuclear-physics services. Our group of expert physicists can provide you with comprehensive medical physics, health physics, and radiological health engineering solutions of the highest quality and most outstanding value for any and all imaging modalities.

Our vision is to team with our clients to provide the safest, most diagnostically relevant images for their patients, all in an atmosphere conducive to learning, nurturing, and continuous improvement. At Foxfire Scientific, Inc., we believe knowledge is power.

Beyond equipment inspections, Foxfire Scientific provides a *broad spectrum* of services. We conduct equipment performance evaluations and safety surveys for *all of the currently used modalities.* Our Medical Physicists stay up-to-date on emerging technologies to ensure that we provide the highest quality and most comprehensive service available.
