When a medical facility is in possession of a CT scanner, they should be well aware that parts and maintenance are not inexpensive when replacements are needed. For that reason, it is essential to keep this factor in mind when considering the costs of purchasing a CT scanner.
The following provides a closer look at the replacement costs for x-ray tubes in Siemens Emotion single slice to 16-slice CT scanners.
The Dura 202.
These tubes are highly proprietary, which means that buyers would have to purchase them from OEM suppliers. Unfortunately, these tubes are not always available for purchase. However, a used Dura 202 can cost up to 33,000 USD.
For facilities that have a mid-range patient volume, the tube can last up to three years.
X-ray tubes that are used for 6 to 16-slice Siemens Emotions’ are the Dura 422 tubes. These tubes can last up to four years at best. A used Dura 422 tube can cost up to 60,000 USD. The same way a Dura 202 is not easy to find, so is the 422. However, it is definitely worth the effort to look for one. The prices for x-ray tubes may depend on the date manufactured and the amount of usage with the CT scanner.
