If it's time for your facility to improve its MRI installations and you’re thinking about redesigning your MRI suite, there are a few tips you can keep in mind for a successful transition. In recent years, MRI technology has evolved and safety regulations for medical imaging equipment have also been updated. When it comes time to redesign your suite, and for the installation to go smoothly, you will have to consider the following tips.

 

Adding a mobile unit

If you’re thinking of purchasing or upgrading to pre-owned medical imaging equipment or a refurbished MRI machine for your MRI suite, you can visit our website to find the best option for your facility! Most healthcare facilities can’t afford to bring MRI scanning to a complete stop while the MRI suite is being remodeled. This is why adding a mobile MRI unit to your facility will help your overall operation. 

 

Magnetic field strength

When purchasing an MRI machine, it is crucial to keep in mind the magnetic field strength; this must be strong and coherent. Magnetic field strength is measured in Teslas, which will determine the scanning speed and image quality. You might want to consider an MRI device that operates at a high field strength like a 3T MRI machine. Most facilities operate at a strength of 1.5 T MRI, which is also very convenient, but if you’re considering upgrading your MRI device to a higher operating strength, then a 3T MRI machine is the choice for you.

 

Open MRI

If you’re seeking to improve your overall patient experience, you might want to consider an open bore MRI machine. This option operates on a low to mid-strength field and is open on all sides, using two flat magnets above and beneath the patient. A wide bore MRI can also be a good option if you want to keep image quality at its best. Choosing the right refurbished MRI machine for your facility will determine the redesign of your MRI suite.

 

MRI safety

When redesigning your MRI suite, you should consider all safety regulations. Keeping in mind all 4 safety zones for your MRI machine. Zone 1 is your unrestricted area for patients and healthcare professionals. Zone 2 is a controlled-access area where patients are welcomed and supervised. Zone 3 is where your post-scan patients are and the last barrier before reaching Zone 4, is where the magnet is placed. Zone 4 should be fully marked with signs, red light and all who enter must go through a metal detector in order to guarantee a safe MRI procedure. Keeping all of these things in mind when remodeling your MRI suite for a successful installation!

As with any medical imaging equipment, there will be servicing needed when owning a C-Arm. If you keep up to date on all maintenance, your C-Arm machine will work at its best. There are some definite measures that you can take to prevent total damage to your c-arm x-ray machine. In this Blog, we will address how you can avoid the damage done to your C-Arm’s cables.

 

Damage done to your cables can be in either small or large tears. A large tear will most likely mean the internal wires are exposed. This can produce a significant safety concern, given that it can cause many different dangers and performance issues. The three cables where tears are usually seen are the HV cable, the Interconnect Cable, and the Power Cable. When any damage is done to these three cables, you will most likely have to replace them. The power cable is generally easy and affordable to replace, but the HV and the Interconnect Cable will set you back around $2,500. 

 

As with any part of your medical imaging equipment, these three cables are extremely important for your C Arm machine and must be replaced entirely if torn. The tape will cover up the tear, but it is only a temporary fix, and over a short time, you will most likely require a service call. Tears are mainly produced in three ways but can be avoided in many. 

 

Safely Unplugging your Cables

The way in which you unplug your cables has everything to do with how long they will last. When unplugging your cables, make sure to always properly and gently disconnect them and not yank them from the wall.

 

Do not roll over your C-Arm cables

Cables get torn when they are run over by the wheels on your C-Arm x-ray machine. In facilities with heavy traffic areas, it is most common to have this type of problem. Your C-Arm machine is a mobile unit and chances are the cables are lying on the floor most of the time. It is crucial to not run over these with your C-Arm, C-Arm table, or medical cart. The more conscious you are about the cables, the longer they will endure.

 

C-Arm movement

The HV cable is very sensitive, and the way you move your C-Arm around will directly influence the state of your cables. You should never rotate or pull your C-Arm machine by the HV cable, and doing this can easily tear your HV Cable.

 

Here at Medilab Global, we advise that your C-Arm system is routinely serviced and your C-Arm cables taken care of in order 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.

When considering upgrading your X-Ray Machines, it is important to ask yourself the following questions. How old is my equipment? Are your patients satisfied with your service? While purchasing brand-new equipment can be very expensive, buying pre-owned medical imaging equipment like used X-ray equipment can be the choice for you. There are many certified companies like ours, who also have refurbished medical equipment for sale. Here are a few tips to help you determine if it's time to replace your medical imaging equipment.
 
How well is your equipment functioning?
If your X-Ray machine is sending you warning signs over short periods of time or your facility is experiencing any sort of downtime or inconvenience due to your medical imaging equipment, it might be time to upgrade it! Even if you perform routine service, your X-Ray Machines may start to wear out over time. Repairs can be costly, and parts can be difficult to replace depending on the model. If you are paying too often for repairs or servicing, it might be time to replace your equipment.
 
Is your equipment handling demand?
If your X-Ray machine is not providing high-quality images for your patients and facility, and it’s taking you longer than usual to provide results, perhaps it is time for a newer model. Remember you can always purchase used X-ray equipment or choose a company like Medilab Global, who has refurbished medical equipment for sale. Technology has improved drastically over the years, and you are sure to find a newer model that also fits your budget.
 
Limited space in your facility?
Older medical imaging equipment requires more storage space due to the film scan copies. A newer model including a portable X-ray machine can be the choice for you! Digital X-Ray machines don’t require additional storage space, they are convenient, and they also save you time.
 
Are parts still available?
If you are starting to find it difficult to find equipment parts, this can mean the model you own is starting to go out of circulation. The older the used X-ray equipment is, the harder it is to find parts. These can be discontinued and it can take you a long time to find the parts you need. Older software is also not able to upgrade as frequently and sometimes at all. This can make it harder for you to use your system and provide quick service.
 

If your equipment isn't functioning at the level, your facility requires it can be time to replace your equipment. Saving time on scanning and providing patients with the best service possible is ideal, and your X-Ray system shouldn’t keep you from being able to do this. Here 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 X-ray machines for sale and used X-ray machines for sale!

In the past couple of years, there has been an increase in 3D Mammography by 110%. Technology keeps improving and the medical imaging equipment world does not hold back in innovation. At least 75% of imaging facilities now have a Digital Breast Tomosynthesis or a DBT Unit. Digital imaging facilities want to provide the latest form of technology, but what are the main differences between 2D and 3D mammography units?

 

Research provided has shown that 3D mammography units detect at least one more additional cancer per 1,000 tests performed than those done with a 2D mammography. The number of false positives has dropped since incorporating 3D mammography, and Doctors are also more likely to find smaller tumors before they spread. 2D mammography only provides two images of the breast, whereas with 3D technology the X-Ray moves in an arc shape, providing full coverage scans. 2D mammography is more affordable if you don’t count on steady insurance, although most insurance companies cover 3D mammography.

 

Choosing the right type of exam for you is very important, so we assure you that it is best to research what type of exam is best for you! If you are looking to upgrade your medical imaging equipment to provide your patients with a more clear experience and your facility up to date, we recommend offering 3D mammograms!

Medical imaging equipment and technology are advancing at a surprising speed, and ultrasound technology does not hold back. 2D, 3D, 4D, and 5D ultrasound technology are all available for your facility. The most common ultrasound technology is the 2D; it is ideal for pregnancy scans that reveal the growth, state, tissues, and organs of a fetus in the womb. You can easily find this type of technology in the refurbished ultrasound equipment market. The images are created by high-frequency waves when the transducer is placed on the skin. The result is a flat black and white scan, which can also be produced by all other technology available since 2D.

3D ultrasounds require less time and have more advanced technology than 2D. The images created are very detailed, you can even get a clear scan of the heart. 3D images are created by waves that are reflected at different angles. The images are usually orange or golden colored. These images are revealed when brought through the software involved in the ultrasound machine. You can find refurbished ultrasound machines in the market that provide this technology.

4D ultrasound is one step further than 3D ultrasound, providing video footage of a scan. It is used to watch the baby in live motion in order to detect any abnormalities in the growth of any organ. These images or scans are recorded and provided to the parents, making this type of ultrasound screening very popular. 4D technology can also be used to examine the heart from different angles, this helps practitioners discover and view the all-around state of the organ. If you are looking to purchase a 4D ultrasound but don’t want to spend on a new model, you can check out our inventory for many options! We specialize in
used medical imaging equipment such as refurbished ultrasound equipment and used ultrasound equipment.

5D is the most recent type of ultrasound technology that allows a scan to be Live at HD and provides HD images. These scans are the sharpest and clear images provided by an ultrasound machine. You can see the baby in an almost life-like form, this helps doctors evaluate the all-around aspect of the baby. 5D is not very common yet, but it sure is convenient and can be found at some practices.

Once you start experiencing problems in your medical imaging equipment, chances are you have an engineer ready for servicing. If it is a small issue, there are some steps that can be followed in order to solve them. Some of the top issues that C-Arms will experience are charger fails, full hard drives, communication errors, pitted x-ray tubes, and low mA errors.

 

Charger Fail

When your C-Arm shows this message, it most likely means the batteries have to be replaced. 

A quick fix can be to reboot the system, but in the long run, it's best to replace them completely.

 

Low mA error

This message also means there is a low battery issue or that it's undercharged. A faulty circuit board, a worn-out generator, or a pitted tube can also cause this warning sign. After plugging in the C-Arm verify after 4 hours if the message is cleared. If it persists, it is best to let your Biomed team reset the boards, or change out the batteries.

 

Pitted X-Ray tube

Overheating, lack of use or worn-out bearings are some of the reasons the X-Ray tube may become pitted. C Arm machines have either a rotating or fixed anode; depending on the use, it can become pitted. When it overheats, it can cause the surface to be weakened. It can be hard to tell if your X-Ray tube is pitted while the C-Arm is on. If you hear a clicking noise while the fluoro exposure is going on, this most likely means the tube is pitted. In some cases, you can use the tube while you replace it, but in other circumstances, it can be best to immediately replace the tube.

 

Gasses can build up inside the tube when a C-Arm hasn't been used in a while. These gasses can cause flashes of electricity, also known as arcing, that can pit the anode. Make sure to let the tube cool down during longer procedures to prevent further damage.

Ever since Hologic received FDA approval on their breast tomosynthesis system the imaging world has been taken by storm and continuously upgraded. Facilities have been able to provide faster technology for patients in order to reach more productivity. Today we will go over some benefits of this technology to help you determine if a 3D Digital mammography system is the right choice of medical imaging equipment for your facility!

How it Works
3D mammography units are simple imaging systems that produce high-quality images for facilities and patients. This process involves 15 different images being taken from different angles of the breast to produce a 3D slice or image. This process provides a sharper look and a more detailed view of the breast. There is more probability of finding a lesion when there are more angles or shots to capture it. Think about it this way; there is a greater chance of detecting cancer if the breast is being thoroughly scanned from every angle.

Less call-back appointments due to preciseness in scanning.
Detection shows the inner breast without image distortion or shadowing.
Faster detection as the breast is scanned from many angles can help rule out benign obstacles.
Comfortable scanning due to scans being produced in a single compression.
Larger breast tissue can be scanned easily due to improved imaging.

Healthcare providers are always looking for better and faster ways to improve their scanning services, so 3D mammography units are a great option to keep up to date with the latest medical imaging equipment technology. Over the years, demand has developed and gone up since 3D technology.

MRI Machines are one of the greatest advances in the world of medical imaging equipment. They contribute to diagnosing many different life-threatening diseases and malfunctions in the body. Many types of MRI systems are currently available in the market, and knowing which one is best for your facility is easier once you know how all of them work. First, it is important to know your facility's and your patients' needs. Knowing this will help you decide if you need a refurbished mri machine, a used mri scanner, or a new system.

 

An MRI device with a large bore will give you a higher viewing field and more freedom in the scanning room. You can check out the options we have available here! Another option available in the refurbished market is a Zero boil-off helium-based MRI machine, which requires a refill every 5-10 years. However, these systems are more costly due to their technology.

 

Image quality in refurbished MRI systems is crucial, so keeping this in mind while reviewing  MRI machine options is very helpful. Toshiba, GE, and Philips often offer the best options in the pre-owned medical imaging equipment market.

 

Another very important consideration is patient comfort. Newer systems tend to offer the best options regarding this topic, although, in the refurbished MRI systems market, brands like Toshiba have great systems to choose from. Other systems, like the Toshiba Pianissimo hardware solution, reduces noise during scanning. Relieving patient anxiety can determine the preference of your facility amongst others, so it can be a plus to have an MRI device that meets patient's needs.

Keeping your MRI device up to date on its maintenance and servicing is key to its functionality. This is why ensuring the right components are checked is crucial for your MRI machine. Here are the key points for your equipment, whether it's a refurbished mri machine or a brand new system.

Engineer Training
It is crucial to guarantee the person or engineer handling servicing is trained to inspect your MRI device. Your engineer should be more than experienced in handling your MRI system to detect any issues.

Cold head Coverage
When purchasing your new MRI or your used MRI scanner, it is key to imply cold head coverage on your servicing contract. The cold head is one of the most essential parts of an MRI machine, so your engineer should be experienced enough to deal with any issue that this presents. This can be scheduled quarterly to maintain a servicing schedule that benefits your equipment the most.

Chiller Service
Making sure your preventative maintenance includes the chiller service is also very important. Since it is an extended part of your MRI device, it is most likely not considered in the contract. A local HVAC company can provide routine servicing on your system’s cooler to keep all of the parts on your MRI, such as the cabinets and electronics, at the correct temperature.

ACR Accreditation
It is crucial to guarantee service to comply with all the norms regarding MRI and ACR accreditation. Although having routine maintenance doesn't guarantee accreditation, image quality standards are getting harder to keep up for older models as technology advances. Make sure to keep up with these pointers to service your MRI machine correctly.
