If you’re having poor image quality on your C-Arm, it might be time to replace or recalibrate the image intensifier or the X-Ray tube on your equipment. Before you call a C-Arm repair group, make sure you have performed these useful tips beforehand. A basic diagnosis is useful and in many ways can help you save on repair. To perform a basic diagnosis, you must keep in mind the following suggestions:

 

1. Adjusting the height on your C-Arm can improve the image quality. When all of the parts are not correctly aligned, you can experience dysfunction in the image quality.

 

2. If the C- Arm is placed near different tissue densities, the AEC will try to focus on both places at the same time causing a grainy effect around the edges of the screen. You must center the tube on the area with the most density first, and then move on to the least dense.

 

3. The AEC might need to be recalibrated or replaced, so you might want to adjust the mA and KvP manually, this can be a temporary fix before calling the repair company.

 

4. Using the (Flouro+) boost on your C-Arm when imaging a dense body part, can help adjust the brightness/ contrast function in the meantime.

 

5. Make sure the wifi signal is working correctly on your C-Arm. Try moving the C-Arm to a different room if the problem persists and you are not able to transfer the images correctly.

 

6. Rebooting your C-Arm system might also help to restart the quality of your images.

 

In conclusion, these steps might help the image quality of your C-Arm improve. If that isn't the case, at Medilab Global we recommend you call your trusted servicing team to improve your C-Arm system. If it’s time to replace your C-Arm, we provide facilities with used medical imaging equipment, refurbished medical imaging equipment, or pre-owned medical imaging equipment.

CT Scanners have made imaging in recent times more convenient. So it is no surprise that technology has advanced, and models are made to improve patient needs daily. One of these models is the Spiral CT, which can create 3D images of most areas inside the body and can detect abnormalities at a rapid screen time. When determining which type of CT scanner is best for your facility, you must keep in mind different things. And if you’re looking for a more affordable choice, you can always consider used medical imaging equipment, such as refurbished CT Scanners or used CT Scanners which we provide at Medilab Global. 

 

Slices

CT Scanners can be single-sliced, or multi-sliced. The ideal slice count depends on your workflow and the type of exams you tend to provide. Multi-slice CT Scanners come in 4,6,8,16,32,40,64 slice settings. You can expand its capabilities and settings when you increase the slice count, this is recommended for cardiac facilities.

 

2- 4 slice count CT Scanners

These will provide fast results and high image quality in a 0.8-0.5 second 360 scan. These are a great option for facilities with mid to high scanning volume.

 

16 slice CT Scanners

These can perform a wide range of procedures that can be complicated. You can identify full organ structures while having a high-resolution result although it can be limiting for full cardiac analysis.

 

32 Slice CT Scanners

These provide shorter scanning times than a 16 slice with great image quality as well.

 

64 Slice CT Scanners

This type of medical imaging equipment is very recommended for cardiac studies. The detail and speed of these machines can provide excellent quality in scanning for heart contractions, blood flow in the arteries, plaque formation, and can detail small structures like vessels and arterial branches. These produce incredibly sharp images with reduced scan time.

 

Mobile CT Scanners are also very common. They are useful in many situations and very recommended if your facility covers lower traffic at different locations. You can easily transport the unit from one facility to the other. This can be great when reaching remote patients. Purchasing used medical imaging equipment, such as refurbished CT Scanners or used CT Scanners can save you up to 70% of your investment.

MRI machines are commonly used in radiology to scan and take detailed images of internal body structures. One of the most commonly asked questions regarding this imaging technique regards how safe it can be. MRI equipment happens to be relatively safe due to the lack of radiation, although there are some precautions to be considered before an MRI scan.

 

  1. According to the FDA, the contrast agents used in MRI scans (GCBA’s) can cause side effects like allergic reactions. 
  2. MRI machines can cause claustrophobia for some patients due to tight space. This can be avoided with an Open MRI Machine. Patients can consult their physician to decide which option is best, and also be prescribed medication to ease the process.
  3. During longer screenings, there can be concern over radiofrequency energy heating the body.
  4. Patients with implanted devices must know if the device is MR Safe.
  5. Ear protection must be worn due to the noise level coming from the MRI equipment.
  6. Patients must be carefully screened for any metal objects such as keys, jewelry, or phones since the magnetic field in an MRI machine is very strong.

 

Taking all of these safety measures into consideration when deciding to submit to an MRI scan is important. Make sure to talk to your doctor about the best option for you. Here at Medilab Global, we provide facilities with used medical imaging equipment, refurbished medical imaging equipment, or pre-owned medical imaging equipment.

If you are in the market for a used or refurbished mammography unit, there are many models you can choose from nowadays! With every model come different features that influence the pricing but the most important is without a doubt the system installation, shipment, and storage. Before deciding to purchase any type of used medical imaging equipment there are some factors to consider.

 

System History

Knowing the system's history is very important. You must make sure to know the medical imaging equipment’s status at the time of the de-installation. If the system was professionally deinstalled, there should be a record of the functionality at the time of the process. Guaranteeing the servicing status indicates the system was previously taken care of.

 

System Inspection

Guaranteeing system performance before the de-installation process is crucial, so your vendor should be able to prove this as well. Calibration testing results in a used mammography unit including ACR image test, bad pixel test, and a flat field calibration test must be performed before purchasing any pre-owned medical imaging equipment such as a mammography machine.

 

System Storage

Used medical imaging equipment requires proper storage with adequate climate control. Mammo units and all medical imaging equipment are sensitive to storage conditions, and your seller must be able to prove proper storage protocols.

 

System Shipping

Be sure to ask for specific details in the shipping logistics regarding the medical imaging equipment.

At Medilab Global, we ensure proper de-installation, packing, and crating for our used medical imaging equipment since this requires proper attention and detail to ensure product safety. These are some of the main questions to ask your seller before purchasing pre-owned medical imaging equipment.

When it comes to C-Arms, a potential buyer must make specific decisions regarding the equipment. This can include size, power requirements, software, and price. One of the latest options for a potential C-Arm buyer is if they want an analog or digital system. Traditional C-Arms can come with an image intensifier or newer flat-panel detectors. Today, we will go over the differences to help you make the right decision for your practice!

 

When considering a C-Arm, you must keep in mind that an image intensifier will provide high-quality images for some time but eventually will start to decrease the quality. A flat panel detector is capable of providing great quality images for years with little to no degradation and for a longer time than analog. With an image intensifier, when you magnify, your field of vision is reduced. With a digital C- Arm you are not likely to have this problem. This type of medical imaging equipment guarantees an undeniable improvement.

 

Flat-panel detectors can deliver a higher potential than analog systems. However, our professionals recommend you make sure your C-Arm is properly serviced and taken care of when needed. The image quality depends greatly on how the system is cared for and it responds positively when properly serviced. Digital systems will run at a greater price but we offer pre-owned medical imaging equipment and we have a wide range of options to choose from, without reducing quality.

 

A digital system will also run on a low radiation dose due to the wide range of views that they provide to digital detectors. Digital detectors also take up less space. In conclusion, the advance in technology for digital systems has greatly improved quality and efficiency for facilities everywhere!

June is Alzheimer’s awareness month and it’s the perfect chance to shed a light on brain awareness and this disease. Throughout this month, the Alzheimer’s Association spreads the word about this disease and encourages people everywhere to train their brains to fight this disease. As research evolves, techniques in neuroimaging do as well. The most common type of imaging used in the early detection of Alzheimer’s includes MRI and CT scanning.

 

Imaging can detect and therefore track whether the brain has shown shrinkage. This is usually a sign of Alzheimer’s progression and medical imaging equipment plays a big part in keeping track of the disease. Structural imaging equipment such as MRI Machines can show tumors, strokes, head trauma, or build-up of fluid in the brain. Another way to identify progress in this disease is with CT scanners.

 

CT scans help detect the loss of brain mass which can be related to Alzheimer’s. Without a doubt, an important part of detecting and tracking this disease involves medical imaging equipment. At Medilab Global we strive to provide doctors and facilities with used medical imaging equipment, refurbished medical imaging equipment, or pre-owned medical imaging equipment. If you are looking to purchase medical imaging equipment, make sure to contact us, we are happy to help and we have refurbished MRI Machines for sale and used MRI Machines For Sale!


To get an accurate diagnosis, doctors may determine it is best to combine tests and scans. It is important to not delay testing, Alzheimer's progresses and it can be crucial to treat adequately and track with imaging techniques. Used medical equipment can be just as functional as new equipment, and you can guarantee our refurbished radiology equipment has been inspected and serviced for your satisfaction.

CT scanners are used to produce detailed images of the many structures in the body, blood vessels, and bones. They can help diagnose many diseases and conditions including damage to the organs, and bones and problems with blood flow. This type of medical imaging equipment helps doctors everywhere to get a closer look at these conditions. The parts that makeup CT scanners are complex, therefore making the equipment very costly. 
 
One of the most important and therefore costly parts of this medical imaging equipment is the X-Ray tube. If the time has come to replace the X-Ray tube or you are thinking of purchasing used medical imaging equipment, Medilab Global can assist you! The durability of the parts on CT scanners depends on many things, and there are a few things to keep in mind when trying to determine when it is best to replace the X-ray tube on your CT scanner.
 
Clicks or counts
CT scanners can tell you how many exposures the tube has gone through, yet it does not specify how much power was utilized during each procedure. With this, it can be hard to identify whether this factor can pinpoint if the tube must be replaced. Brands like Toshiba for example, specify that you can estimate the time the tube has been utilized with the gantry rotation speed.
 
Total Number of Exams
A common but not very effective way to determine whether to change your X-Ray tube is probably to count the total number of exams performed on the imaging machine. This is because like the estimate of clicks and counts, it will not specify how much power was used during each scan, though if it is the only available information in some cases, it can also be taken into account.
 
Scan Seconds
A more effective way to know when it is necessary to replace your X-Ray tube is to measure the scan seconds and duration of tube exposure. This helps determine power usage and can be a good way to identify this problem.
 
MA´s
MilliAmpere seconds or MA´s prove the length of exposure and how much power was used to run through the X-Ray tube. This can be the most effective and accurate method to determine whether it is time to change the X-Ray tube, and it is recommended by GE for most of their systems. It is important to note that these tips can help provide a more detailed decision, yet it is also recommended to check this through professional servicing.

Although MRI machines are considered safe due to low radiation emission, precautions must still be followed to conclude a safe procedure. MRI equipment is used for vascular, orthopedic, and neurological studies around the world, and it is no exception to follow safety guidelines. MRI machines use strong magnetic fields to produce images of internal body structures. And even though they don't use radiation, certain protocols must be followed to avoid accidents.

 

Some hazards that can occur while having an MRI procedure include:

  • Objects such as implants can be moved out of place.
  • Ferromagnetic objects can become projectiles, anything like jewelry, keys, O2 tanks, wheelchairs, etc.
  • Severe burns can be caused to engineers by liquid cryogens or gas leaks.
  • RF coils can heat up patient implants.
  • Hearing loss can be caused by the noise levels due to the MRI gradients.

 

Here at Medilab Global, we recommend facilities follow all safety guidelines to ensure a safe screening every time. We provide facilities with used medical imaging equipment, refurbished medical imaging equipment, or pre-owned medical imaging equipment. If you are looking to purchase medical imaging equipment, make sure to contact us, we are happy to help and we have refurbished MRI Machines for sale and used MRI Machines For Sale! We ship worldwide to hospitals, clinics, pain management facilities, and much more!

 

To prevent MRI accidents, we recommend patients follow these procedures:

  • Filling out a questionnaire that details if patients have any implants, or sometimes an orbital X-Ray is required.
  • Keep away any ferromagnetic object from the scanner, since these can get lodged into the magnet’s bore.
  • All patients should wear hearing protection to prevent hearing loss due to the gradients.
  • Patients should be screened with a metal detector before entering the MRI scanner room.

Bone Densitometer scanning, also known as DEXA scanning, is used to measure bone mineral density. To detect bone fractures and osteoporosis, patients are likely to go through a bone density scan. This type of medical imaging equipment is known to help millions of people around the world, and their doctors, detect Osteoporosis. This year, the month of May is dedicated to Osteoporosis awareness.

 

Approximately half of all women and 1 in every 4 men over the age of 50 in the U.S will break a bone due to Osteoporosis and about 1 in every 3 adults over 65 in the U.S will also fall and increase their chances of a broken bone. To prevent this disease it is crucial to build healthy bones early in life. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly can help prevent osteoporosis.

 

Getting a bone density scan regularly can help detect fragile bones and keeping up positive habits can ensure bone health in the future. With routine density scans, patients can track bone mineral density (BMD) and this can help detect osteoporosis. When going to a bone density scan, you can expect to have small parts of the body like hands and arms examined, or bigger parts such as the spine and hip bone scanned. Bone densitometers are part of the standard modalities of medical imaging equipment and they don’t require complex scanning procedures. Adults can start early screening to keep track of their BMD. When getting a DEXA scan, you will not experience high-dose radiation exposure. It is a non-invasive procedure and the low dose X-Ray beams are not harmful to the body. 


Here at Medilab Global, we help and guide facilities and doctors everywhere to purchase used medical imaging equipment. We offer refurbished medical equipment for sale, such as used bone density machines for sale!

C-Arms are used worldwide for surgical procedures, gastrointestinal labs, pain centers, and orthopedic procedures. C- Arms require a lot of power to run, and to maintain and extend the battery life there are some important tips to keep in mind. To produce X- Rays, C-Arms must use a substantive amount of power ( 40 -120 KV), therefore they require to be plugged into a wall outlet and to have additional batteries. The wall outlet mainly covers the power used for the monitors.

 

This type of medical imaging equipment requires two batteries weighing about 30 lbs each, with about 100 KV, to function. At the same time, the C-Arm is light enough to move around any facility. Depending on the type of C- Arm, the battery can vary. Mini C-Arms for example, tend to only require one battery, while a full-sized C- Arm mainly requires two. Battery life depends on the use, but a typical C-Arm battery will last about 5 years if used daily. 

 

Here at Medilab Global, we advise that your C-Arm system is routinely serviced to guarantee its potential. We provide facilities with used medical imaging equipment, refurbished medical imaging equipment, or pre-owned medical imaging equipment. If you are looking to purchase medical imaging equipment, make sure to contact us, we are happy to help and we have Refurbished C-Arm Machines and Used C-Arm X-ray Machines! We ship worldwide to hospitals, clinics, pain management facilities, and much more! We have Used C-Arms for sale and a wide range of options to choose from.

 

To prevent overcharging, C-Arms must be unplugged and booted after a week of inactivity. If you stumble across a pre-charge error, you must drain the voltage on the battery below 250 V by raising and lowering the C-Arm column. To preserve battery power, C-Arms must be plugged in every night after use since the battery requires from 2 to 4 hours to charge.

 

Medical imaging equipment such as C-Arms will typically let you know when the battery must be replaced. This happens after noticing you have plugged in the C-Arm overnight and the battery power is only up to 70%. When this happens, your system will show a sign that informs you to ¨Wait¨. In this case, it is necessary to replace the battery. In conclusion, be sure to replace the batteries on your C-Arm about every 5 years or so, to maintain your system functioning to its maximum potential.


At Medilab Global, we also specialize in refurbished medical imaging machines and we buy medical equipment from facilities like yours! You can fill out this form to sell used medical equipment and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

Both 1.5T and 3T MRI machines have their pros and cons. When deciding which is best for your facility, consider what types of screening your facility is most likely to offer. Comparing the 1.5T MRI and 3T MRI machines means that the magnetic strength of the MRI machine is proportional to the signal it receives from the human body. But just because 3T means double the power, this does not mean it is the best MRI machine option. Below are some facts about the 3T MRI Machine and the 1.5T MRI.

 

1.5T MRI

 

  • Shorter scan times compared to 1.0T models
  • Compatibility with most metal implanted devices
  • Weaker signal, sound pressure, and heating elements; therefore, not many safety concerns
  • Reduces possible distortion when in movement
  • High-quality scans
  • Not great at detecting small details, yet great for overall chest and abdomen scans

 

3T MRI Machine

  • Shorter scan times compared to 1.5T MRI. 
  • Compatibility with many metal implanted devices has not been proven
  • Sound pressure and noise are higher due to its potential
  • Clear images don’t likely allow image distortion
  • Great for scanning and detecting small details in bone, neurological, and vascular imaging

 

Although both models are very recommended, the 1.5T MRI Scanner may be best for you if your facility does not require very powerful applications. Keep in mind certain factors such as budget, patient traffic, services required most often, and personal preference when making this decision.
