Rad Room Preparation tips

Having a Rad Room at your imaging center or clinic is an important part of adding value to your facility.  To maintain productivity within the facility, offering this service is crucial. X-ray imaging is an essential procedure that helps patients everywhere to be diagnosed. This type of medical imaging equipment can be placed in a room specifically for X-ray procedures. At Medilab Global, we sell used medical equipment and we have used X-ray machines for sale. If you are preparing your facility for installing a Rad Room, there are some important things to consider. Space, cost, imaging equipment, and a site plan are important things to analyze before purchasing a Rad Room.

Considering the last few years since the pandemic, it is important to keep in mind safety procedures for both patients and employees. Keeping your Rad Room up to date with the latest safety procedures is very important and that is why considering disinfection and face shields is effective. Before installing a Rad Room in your facility it is important to keep in mind some useful tips.


An important part of your Rad Room is how much space you have available for your medical imaging equipment and desired accommodations. These should include:

1. A changing room with lockers

2. Ample counter space for computers and other technology you might need

3. Enough room for your X-ray machine and table

4. A bathroom 

5. Cabinet space for storage

6. Sufficient lighting and dimmers 

7. Lead lined windows and walls

8. Security panic button

9. Different entries to the room

10. High double doors that allow easy entry of other equipment


When thinking about installing a Rad Room you should always prioritize the cost. Here at Medilab Global,  we sell used radiology equipment or refurbished radiology equipment and can show you the advantages of purchasing pre-owned medical imaging equipment. The cost of used medical imaging equipment will always be lower than the cost of purchasing new. These systems have been inspected, serviced, and refurbished if needed. If your priority is to save on perfectly functioning systems, purchasing second-hand medical equipment is the way to go! Also, if you’d like to upgrade and are asking google  “ Where to sell medical equipment ”, Medilab Global can help you since we buy medical equipment from facilities as well.

Radiation Precautions

Once you have gone through the costs of purchasing the medical imaging equipment you will want to verify the space and design your site plan according to the measurements. One very important factor is also the radiation safety measures. Depending on the amount of exposure, the more you will need to consider lead lining. You can find out the requirements when you contact your state’s radiology health department.

In conclusion, installing a Rad Room should require going through a checklist of possible factors. Once you complete this, you will be able to provide your patients with high-quality imaging technology.
