Before Disposing your Medical Imaging Equipment

If you’re ready to upgrade your medical imaging equipment, there are a few things to consider. Maybe you have another facility where you can transfer that equipment or sell it to a company like ours and put that money towards your next purchase. Some people don’t have anywhere to take their Pre-owned medical imaging equipment, and they decide it’s best to dispose of it. Disposing medical imaging equipment is complicated, so you may ask yourself, what is the best way to do this?

Most times, facilities don’t address the situation until the situation is taking place. The truth is, you must plan for these decisions so you can sort out all types of possibilities without making a rushed, uninformed decision. Ideally, there are four ways to get rid of your used medical imaging equipment, redeploy, donate, sell, or scrap. The first question that comes to mind is, when do I need to make this decision? Well, the sooner you make a decision, the faster you can start planning for the future of your facility.

To help you make this decision, there is a list of questions you can address to determine how you want to go about the situation:

-How functional is the device?

-Can it be repaired?

-How old is my medical imaging equipment?

-Is it still supported by the OEM?

-Can you transfer the equipment to another one of your facilities?

-How often do you use the equipment?

-What are the shipping costs?

-If the device doesn’t work, can you take it apart to save the individual parts for refurbishing?

-Do you have maintenance and service records?

-If the equipment no longer has value, where should you take it to be recycled or scrapped?

Once you establish these questions, you can dispose of your pre-owned medical imaging equipment.
