Both OEC and Philips manufacture C-Arms. There are many differences and similarities between both, and today we will share some of those with you. Servicing, power, and parts availability are some of the main reasons why facilities tend to lean towards the OEC C-Arm. Facilities are able to choose what's best for them and without a doubt, both models have made a wide impact in the industry.

Maintenance and Servicing
Proper maintenance and servicing are crucial for all medical imaging equipment, having a trustworthy engineer close by is important and being able to rely on them is necessary. In the case that you would like to hire a third-party engineer, it is more difficult to find an experienced and affordable one who will service a Philips system, whereas finding one who will service an OEC system is rather easy.

Parts Availability
In the secondary market for parts, one is able to find more depth and stock for OEC parts rather than Philips parts. Philips parts also tend to be more costly due to their scarceness. Having easy access to parts is crucial when dealing with used medical imaging equipment.

Power
If your facility tends to patients with longer vascular studies or even bariatric patients, you will require more power from your medical imaging equipment. The OEC model offers more power, and if your facility requires a medium-powered system, The OEC 8800 might be the best option for you.

Every user has the power to determine what is best for their facility, and although we mention the OEC model as the most convenient, Philips does not disappoint when it comes to quality and variety in their systems. 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 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!

If you’re looking to purchase refurbished MRI systems, you might want to keep a few tips in mind to successfully run your equipment. An MRI machine requires certain helpful guidelines to guarantee its correct use and lifespan. One of the most important things to keep in mind when talking about an MRI machine is to make sure the device stays cool. Below are some tips to make sure the MRI device at your facility is running smoothly!

 

Opt for a Service Contract

Having a service contract guarantees your refurbished MRI machine will be regularly checked and maintenanced. To keep your MRI machine cool, the compressor and the cold head must be correctly functioning. The compressor is cooled by cold water that is supplied by the chiller. If the chiller isn't working properly, the cold-head and compressor will shut down. We advise facilities to establish routine servicing at least twice a year.

 

Remote Monitoring

You can program your MRI device to update you when the chiller or cold-head is not working. Power outages can cause damage and helium loss to your MRI machine, if you have these alerts installed, you can make sure your equipment is checked promptly by an engineer.

 

Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is extremely crucial, even when your refurbished MRI machine is running perfectly. Losing liquid helium can become an issue when the cold-head shuts down and making sure you're not spending money on emergency repairs is important when saving on your medical imaging equipment. 

 

Regularly check your MRI system

If you start to see minor issues on your used MRI scanner, make sure to get them checked out before they become a bigger problem. Many times, the cold-head will stop working and the facility does not notice for days. Avoid any future spending on problems that can be foreseen.


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 MRI Machines for sale and used MRI Machines For Sale!

Every day, more ultrasound machines are used to deal with various applications. This medical imaging equipment is easy to use, lightweight and provides clear images. They are portable, making them very convenient for facilities, and their batteries are considered long life on and off-site. Portable ultrasound machines are used for many different applications and come in a wide range of frequencies. They are used in Abdominal, Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Urology, and Vascular fields. Let’s go over the different frequencies used in portable radiology equipment.

 

With ultrasound technology, soundwaves can provide clear images of internal body structures. However, the speed of sound waves is not constant and cannot travel without a medium. When there is an increase in frequency, sound beams tend to be more direct and narrow. The frequency of sound waves must be inversely proportional to their penetration. With an increase in frequency, the penetration of the sound wave is decreased. 

 

Here at Medilab Global, we are happy to provide hospitals and facilities with refurbished ultrasound machines that can help doctors evaluate all types of conditions. We specialize in selling used medical imaging equipment that helps diagnose patients daily! Our facility offers a wide range of medical imaging equipment, such as used medical ultrasound equipment. There are many advantages of purchasing refurbished radiology equipment, and we can guarantee your facility and patients’ complete satisfaction!

 

When the sound waves travel through a medium, these cause the molecules to vibrate, which then makes them contract and expand, causing sound waves to go through one molecule to the next. Typically, higher frequency ultrasounds are used to image superficial body structures, while lower frequency ultrasounds are used to scan deeper structures and organs. According to radiopaedia.org, here is a guide to frequency and body parts:

2.5 MHz: obstetric, gynecological, and deep abdomen imaging

3.5 MHz: obstetric, general abdomen, and gynecological imaging

5 MHz: vascular, breast, and general abdomen imaging

7.5 MHz: breast and thyroid

10 MHz: thyroid, breast, superficial masses and veins and musculoskeletal imaging

15 MHz: musculoskeletal and superficial structures imaging

On August 1st every year, we commemorate world lung cancer day. The mission for this day is to raise as much awareness as possible and promote early screening for this disease. According to the World Health Organization, more people die from lung cancer than from liver, breast, and colon cancer combined. Most lung cancers can be detected by screening, while others are detected because they are causing other problems. Many imaging tests are performed in order to detect cancer. These include X-Rays, CT Scans, MRI, and PET scans.

 

Here at Medilab Global, we are happy to provide hospitals and facilities with refurbished MRI machines for sale and used CT Scanners, that can help doctors detect lung cancer. We specialize in selling used medical imaging equipment that helps diagnose patients daily! Our facility offers a wide range of used radiology equipment, such as Used MRI Machines For Sale and used X-Ray equipment. 

 

X-Ray

An X-Ray will be the first exam used to scan for lung cancer, if a doctor detects any abnormalities, they will most likely perform more tests.

 

CT Scan

A CT Scanner will take many detailed pictures of the lungs and compile them to generate a slice of the body part being scanned. A CT Scan is more likely to detect any form of lung cancer than a normal X- Ray chest scan. It can detect the size, shape, and position of the lung tumor and it can be used to scan different parts of the body where cancer may have spread.

 

MRI

This is another way of screening for lung cancer. Instead of X-Rays, an MRI Machine will use radio waves and has a strong magnetic field that can detect if cancer has spread to the spinal cord or brain.

 

Unfortunately, lung cancer does not have one cause, smoking, increasingly polluted air, and exposure to gasses can all cause lung cancer. It is crucial to get screened if you have been exposed to any of these causes for long periods of time. Preventing the spreading of cancer to other areas can be very important as well, and this may come as a result of early screening. We highly encourage people to get screened for this disease, and we are more than happy to provide the medical imaging equipment required to help the cause of cancer!

A C- Arm X- Ray machine is an efficient and essential tool that helps doctors scan and diagnose many diseases everywhere. This type of medical imaging equipment is often used in orthopedics, cardiology, vascular surgery, and traumatology. Its more practical model, the mobile C- Arm or portable C Arm machine, is among the favorite of all imaging machines. This device offers practical scanning due to its easy mobility. You can easily transport it from one room in your facility to another. 

 

A mobile C-Arm is an imaging device that uses X-Ray technology. The X-Ray source and X-Ray detector are connected by a C shape which ultimately gives it its name. C-Arms provide high-quality scans and images in real-time. During a procedure, a doctor or surgeon can monitor progress and make crucial decisions based on the results of these images.

 

How it works

Mobile C- Arms all have a generator and an image intensifier or flat panel detector. The C shape allows movement horizontally, vertically, and across an axis. This means that it can scan at almost every angle.

The X-Rays caused by the generator penetrate the body and are then converted into clear images by the image intensifier, which then comes up on the monitor. Doctors are able to identify and check the detailed images and gather conclusions.

 

Analog C-Arms 

If the image intensifiers are analog, the X-Ray hits a fluorescent surface which glows depending on the strength of the radiation. An analog camera captures the glow and then shows it on the monitor.

 

Digital Technology

When the image intensifier is digital, it has modern flat panel technology. The intensity of the X-Rays is converted into a digital scan. The images are free of distortion due to electron optics.

 

At Medilab Global, we provide facilities with pre-owned medical imaging equipment like refurbished C-Arm machines and other used medical imaging equipment. If you are a Doctor or facility looking to sell used medical equipment, we buy medical equipment and can help you purchase or trade for one of our options!

This year in the month of July we strive for Juvenile Arthritis Awareness. This campaign works to raise awareness and share resources with those affected. It is reported that 16-150 out of 100,000 children are diagnosed with Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). This condition is monitored with the use of medical imaging, mainly with x-ray systems or MRI technologies. Arthritis in kids not only affects the joints but other things like the eyes, the skin, and the gastrointestinal tract as well. Their immune system attacks the joints, causing swelling, stiffness, and other complications.

 

At Medilab Global, we specialize in Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Sales and we focus on Pre-owned imaging equipment and Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment such as Pre-owned MRI. We provide medical imaging resources to facilities looking to buy used radiology equipment. We understand how important it is to help doctors diagnose this condition and we are proud to be in the top medical imaging companies that help this cause.

 

Juvenile arthritis can last months, years, or a lifetime. This disease will develop over time into a deeper stage of arthritis depending on the immune system of the patient. This disease can be controlled by medication and other treatments and children can even go into remission in different stages or for a lifetime. If any children in your family are diagnosed, it is important to have early screening with tests such as a DEXA scan for siblings and even cousins, as genes can also determine risk.

 

Juvenile arthritis sometimes goes undiagnosed due to the misunderstanding of symptoms. By spreading awareness and supporting local foundations and groups we can make sure this disease does not go unnoticed. Volunteering and participating in trials can also help raise awareness and tackle this issue.

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. At Medilab Global, we are one of the top medical imaging companies in the US, offering Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Sales, focusing on Pre-owned imaging equipment and Refurbished Medical Imaging Equipment such as MRI Scanners and CT Scanners, C-Arms, Mammo Units, Bone Densitometers, Rad Rooms and more!

If you’ve been looking to buy used Cath Labs, at Medilab Global you can see we have two different options. The Philips Allura FD20 and the GE Innova 3100 IQ, at first glance might think they are similar but the main difference between the two Cath Labs is that one is floor mounted and the other is ceiling mounted. Choosing medical imaging equipment is usually up to preference. Choosing what can work best for your facility is up to what you know you and your patients require. When making this decision it is best to see what both models have to offer.

 

The first thing to consider when purchasing a Cath Lab is the cath suite ceiling height. With the GE Innova 3100 IQ, the monitors and shield light will be hanging from the ceiling so it gives you more flexibility. To fully adapt the hanging components of the Cath Lab, the recommended height by GE is 9’6. The FD20 is different, the gantry and the table interact with one another, making the requirements more specific when it comes to developing a site plan. Phillips requires a height of 9’6 3/16 with a range of 3/8 to spare, but not any lower. The ceiling has to be squared and level to +/- 1/16 per 39’’.

 

Here at Medilab Global, we are proud to be serving our community and healthcare providers with our products for over 25 years! If you are a Doctor or facility looking to sell used medical equipment, we buy medical equipment as well and can help you purchase or trade for one of our options! You can fill out this form and be sure to contact us, we are happy to help! We have medical imaging equipment for sale and you can buy used Cath Labs! We ship worldwide to hospitals, clinics, pain management facilities, and much more!


An important part of site planning for your Cath Lab is to make sure the gantry has full movement. Both floor and ceiling-mounted Cath Labs require a ceiling structure to be installed, although one requires more than the other. The floor-mounted Cath Lab requires the structure to hold approximately 750 pounds, while a ceiling-mounted Cath Lab requires to hold about 3,700 pounds. This means heavy-duty materials must be considered when building the structure. If you require more assistance when considering these two options, don’t hesitate to contact us at Medilab Global!
