Tips on maintaining your Medical Imaging Equipment

There are many useful tips to consider when it comes to keeping your medical imaging equipment in tip-top shape. For the most part, taking these preventable steps will help to maintain, care, and maximize the ROI of your medical imaging equipment. Whether it is brand new or you invest in Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment, these tips are for you!

Use correct cleansing products on your equipment

The physical appearance of your medical equipment can guarantee patient satisfaction and equipment performance. Make sure to only follow cleaning procedures and use chemical products established by the manufacturer as using otherwise can cause equipment discoloration. Also, make sure to avoid technical damage by turning off the equipment when cleaning and maintaining. Remember here at Medilab Global we provide paint and refurbishment procedures on any equipment for an additional cost. 

Proper use

Regular and reinforced training of your team can guarantee the correct and proper use of your medical imaging equipment. Due to equipment costs, manipulating your new or Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment comes with great responsibility. Having staff who acknowledges and continuously cares for this will guarantee durability.

Maintain and care for the components

Just as the main parts need care, don’t overlook the rest of the components of your equipment. Elements such as batteries, film, or phosphor chassis and detectors also need specific maintenance. This will guarantee the overall functionality and durability of your imaging equipment. Detectors are sensitive and must be handled with care at all times, as well as periodic cleaning of the phosphor chassis to ensure quality images. The film is very sensitive as well and requires proper storage.

Keep equipment specifications in mind at all times

Pre-Owned Medical Imaging Equipment requires the same technical specifications as new imaging equipment. Make sure to store and keep track of all manuals or guides that come with your equipment to ensure the proper use and reduce corrective maintenance. Your provider should be able to provide you with the correct user manual to guide you as well.

Optimum operating environment

Keeping your facilities or operating environment in the best conditions also positively affects your imaging equipment. Manufacturers recommend specific temperatures to operate your equipment. You can be sure to find this information in the operating manual provided by manufacturers or vendors. A functioning electrical system is also required to guarantee the best results and longevity of your equipment.

Preventive Maintenance 

Keeping your imaging equipment working at its highest standards requires preventive and constant maintenance. This helps to detect any component errors before they become a bigger issue. Having a certified technician examine your machinery during the recommended time periods is very important, as well as keeping the software updated at all times. Make sure to guarantee the right maintenance of your equipment to ensure proper care to your patients at all times, and to correctly fulfill your investment!
