Alpha Imaging LLC, a Cleveland distributor of advanced medical imaging equipment, has acquired Modern Imaging Inc. 

The Swansea, Massachusetts-based Modern has provided sales and service of medical imaging equipment for over 30 years and will enhance Alpha Imaging's capabilities in the Northeast region.

“The acquisition of Modern expands our client base and allows access to strategic accounts in the New England states,” Alpha Imaging CEO Michael Perrico said in a statement.

Modern Imaging's customers will also benefit, gaining access to a greater variety of medical imaging equipment from manufacturers throughout New England, including Shimadzu, Neusoft, Canon, Konica and Del Medical.

Modern President Brad Morse said in a statement, “Merging the relationships that we have forged over the years with the talents and equipment line of Alpha is a win, win, win. Our existing customers can now have access to higher-end, advanced imaging products; I am able to be a part of a highly respected, growth-oriented medical imaging distributor with an outstanding support team; and Alpha can expand their customer base in the area.”

Morse noted that the deal will also add new efficiencies for Modern's clients, including having more field service engineers, and improved reporting and documentation.
