After purchasing an OEC C-Arm Laser Aimer, you may experience the many benefits it comes with. However, there may come a time where the Laser Aimer isn’t working as it used to. That’s when you may think your OEC laser aimer is broken.

However, there is a good chance that your laser aimer still works. Unfortunately, however, your parts provider may try to sell you a new one without further inquiries on the current system. One of the biggest questions you need to ask yourself when facing downtime in your laser aimer is – did you check the batteries?

It was stated that statistically around 75% of customers that claimed their OEC C-Arm Laser Aimer was broken faced the same problem. These users simply needed a single fix: replacing the batteries.
There are three batteries in a laser aimer. They are both double-A batteries, and the same way you change a toy’s batteries, you can replace the Laser Aimers batteries. By doing so, you can save your medical facility from being out thousands of dollars in purchasing a new Laser Aimer.

While the batteries are typically the primary culprit of a faulty Laser Aimer, sometimes, users may face a problem where the OEC Laser Aimer is truly experiencing technical difficulties and may require replacement. Fortunately, there are a variety of firms that offer these devices at fair prices. The prices may vary depending on whether you decide to purchase a brand new Laser Aimer or whether you opt for a used device for a lesser price.

GE CT scanner for sale

PET/CT scanners have become one of the most effective forms of medical imaging available to-date. Through the combination of advanced nuclear imaging techniques, molecular imaging known as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT), a highly sophisticated process was introduced.

The cost of PET/CT scanners.
For PET/CT scanners, the cost may depend on the region it is sold, the healthcare system, and the type of scan being imaged. However, as compared to the individual PET scanners and CT scanners, the PET/CT scanner is known for being costly in the market.

How PET/CT systems are used.
Generally, PET/CT scanners are known for being used to locate cancer and for identifying other diseases within the body. Since damaged cells or cancerous cells use more glucose, doctors would be able to determine the size of the cancerous cell and the grade by examining the rate the tumor is infused with a glucose solution.

Additionally, while being able to detect cancer, the system can also help doctors identify if the cancerous cells have spread through the body of the patient and how useful it would be to conduct radiation or chemotherapy treatments. Once the treatment has been completed, the PET/CT scanner would also be able to detect whether the tumor has returned.

Other uses of a PET/CT scanner.
• These systems can help track and observe the blood flow to the heart and other parts of the body.
• Identifying heart diseases or other infections to the heart.
• Determining if angioplasty or bypass surgery would benefit different areas of the heart.
• Evaluation of brain abnormalities.
• Mapping the heart and brain function for research purposes.
