1) X-ray Tube: Often referred to as the “engine” of the CT scanner, the X-ray tube represents the most expensive component. Similar to a consumable item, it typically requires replacement every five years, though the exact timeframe varies based on factors such as usage, tube manufacturing year, and quality. When purchasing a pre-owned CT scanner, it is imperative to meticulously evaluate the usage and age of the X-ray tube. At Digit Systems, our expert engineers conduct comprehensive inspections, leaving no stone unturned, and provide detailed inspection reports. This rigorous approach ensures complete transparency and minimizes the potential for future issues.
2) Maintenance Fee: It is important to note that the initial low price of a CT scanner does not always result in minimized costs in the long run. CT scanners can serve clinical purposes for 10-20 years, making it crucial to choose the right equipment. Maintenance fees play a pivotal role in determining the overall costs. CT scanners with low demand may be available at a lower upfront price; however, finding replacement parts for these models can be challenging and often necessitates expensive purchases from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). Conversely, highly demanded CT scanners may carry a higher price tag initially but offer cost advantages when it comes to finding replacement parts. Seeking consultation from our equipment experts can provide invaluable insights into purchasing the most suitable CT scanner for your specific needs.
3) Slice Options: CT scanners offer a range of slice options, typically ranging from 16 to 256 slices, depending on your specific requirements. Carefully selecting the appropriate number of slices is crucial for achieving accurate results while effectively managing costs.
While purchasing a pre-owned CT scanner entails several critical considerations, it can prove to be a cost-effective solution for obtaining quality equipment. As such, we encourage you to speak with one of our specialists today to explore the potential benefits of purchasing used CT equipment.
