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.

Dura 422.

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.

To go wireless is a big step any organization would be taking. There are numerous advantages and disadvantages when it comes to going wireless. Therefore, it is essential to take a look at both the positives and negatives before making a choice to go wireless.

The following is a set of information to help a medical facility decide what would be the right choice:
The advantages of using wireless x-ray technology include:

• Portability.
Wireless x-ray technology is portable by nature. This would help a medical facility improve versatility and flexibility since the equipment can be moved to different locations.
• Accident risk is reduced.
With the removal of extra cables, there would be a good chance of reduced accidents from tripping on cords and ending up with broken equipment.
• Readily available images.
With a wireless system, the image would always be readily available from any location. This adds to the advantage of convenience and efficiency in the workplace.
The disadvantages of wireless x-ray technology:

• Connectivity issues.
Wireless systems are incredibly efficient until a connectivity issue arises. If there is a dull spot in the workplace where there is no chance of getting a signal, it may interfere with connectivity. When considering the amazing advantage of high-tech equipment, it would be a complete disappointment when there is no signal.
• Upfront cost.
Wireless x-ray technology is typically more expensive to purchase than conventional systems. In terms of value, wireless x-ray technology does provide added benefits. However, the cost may depend on the facility.

If wireless x-ray technology seems like the right choice for your medical facility, Amber USA is here to provide.

The world of technology has provided a way to ease the mind of many, including the medical world by being able to quickly, effectively, and safely store and obtain digital files. Nothing proves this better than when a disaster strikes are files and data can be restored through backup and recovery technology. However, while backup and recovery does seem easy to manage, it requires proactive treatment for the best results in the event of a failure.

Backup of data is virtually all about copying and storing files in a safe location over a digital medium. If files and data are only available in a single location, you may have to consider the following:
• How would that data be retrieved in case the machine is damaged?
• What happens when someone accidentally permanently deletes a critical folder?
• A hard drive storing all important information crashes?

By that logic, a medical facility may have to face a lot more than fear when losing patient information. That’s where the importance of backup comes in. With the use of an efficient backup solution, the backed-up file can immediately be pulled out and copied to the new system to cover a moment of carelessness or failure.

Data recovery, however, works on a larger scale. Although, it is similar to backup.
Since adverse events that may pose a risk to data loss can happen either on individual devices or across an entire network, backup and data recovery is best served for excellent results to maintain data integrity.

For every medical facility using imaging equipment, Amber USA’s advice is to make sure the facility has a data recovery and backup plan available.
On the other hand, when looking to purchase medical imaging equipment, Amber USA can be the go-to place. Amber USA provides a set of the highest quality used and refurbished medical imaging equipment including an xray machine for sale, used ultrasound machine, MRI scanner, and much more.
However, current offers include the best brands of an x ray machine for sale. To get yours now, contact Amber USA for inquiries!

Is it getting more challenging to keep your mini C-Arm in position?

Some medical facilities may face the unfortunate articulation of the C-Arm gradually drooping lower throughout scans. However, keep in mind that this is actually a very common problem that most C-Arm users experience. Fortunately, it is also an elementary problem to solve.

The following are five simple steps that C-Arm users in a medical facility can take to return their C-Arm devices back to the firm, stable position it was in the initial stages of the purchase.

Although this is a simple procedure, it is recommended that when following these steps, you watch a video that guides you on how to perform each task accurately. That way you can make sure the best results are obtained through the following instructions.

1. Try to obtain a 3/16 Allen wrench and a small screwdriver (flat-head).
2. By gently prying the rubber cap with the screwdriver, try to remove the cap located in the base of the arm.
3. Slightly tighten the screw that should be present beneath the cap. Try to screw the cap firmly but not as tight as possible. If the screw if over-tightened, the arm movement may be too stiff to use.
4. Test the arm movement according to the desired adjustment and repeat the above steps as needed.
5. Replace the rubber cap as it was previously and continue to use the C-Arm as usual.

While these steps are the easiest possible way to return your mini C-Arm back to its firm stage in positioning, if you do still face drooping problems after these adjustments, a broader issue may be the problem, and you may require expert assistance to take a look at the problem.
