Things to keep in mind for your CT Scanner Site Plan

There are many important factors to consider when purchasing a CT Scanner. First thing is first, so deciding whether buying used medical imaging equipment is for you will be at the top of the list. At Medilab Global we have CT Scanner machines for sale and a wide range of options to choose from. Most facilities have fixed CT Scanner machines and some have opted for mobile CT Scanners. If mobile is what you’re looking for, at Medilab Global you will be sure to find a mobile CT Scanner for sale! Having a site plan and appropriate configurations for your machine can help benefit your facility and in the long run, this can help save time and money on additional costs. We advise having qualified floor plans, approved plumbing, and power requirements as well as shielding and other safety measures in your facility before your medical imaging equipment arrives. It is also necessary to check surrounding rooms and walls before installing the imaging room.


Due to the risk of radiation, it is extremely important to shield ceilings and floors close to the CT Scan room. Technicians and patients are also exposed to radiation, therefore it is important to use portable lead shields. The walls in the scan room, the doors, and the viewing windows should all be protected as well.


This part of the CT Scanner requires running cold water. In order to supply the heat exchanger, cold water has to be available on site. If there is no cold-water available, there must be a heat exchanger cabinet which is then cooled by an outdoor cooling system.

Temperature Control

The room temperature must be maintained at all times in the CT Exam Room. It is important to keep it anywhere between 64 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The rest of the room can be set to a lower temperature ranging from 59-75 degrees. Heat on one side of the room should not intervene with the temperature in the rest of the room. 

Power Supply

The power supply in the suite must meet all local and national requirements in order to function. These will vary depending on system requirements and power consumption. We also advise having an emergency power off button.

Once you consult all of these specifications and record your construction progress, you can set up a completion date for your room and call us at Medilab Global to schedule the delivery of your medical imaging machine!
