X-Ray PMs

We emphasize preventive maintenance (PM) a lot here at Block Imaging. We type about it in emails. We talk about it on the phone. We blog about it online. This emphasis is because we firmly believe that regular preventive maintenance for X-ray machines, and all other kinds of medical imaging equipment, is essential to safety, image quality, and minimizing downtime.

We consulted one of our resident C-arm experts, Gary Dodge about what savings buyers can expect to find when they come across OEC 9900s on the refurbished market. He replied with this:

Selenia-Sun-Ultra-EOL

If you use a Hologic Selenia manufactured between January 19th, 2007 and December 7th 2012, you may remember the day the letter from Hologic's field service arm came to your mailbox with the dreaded news: your system was declared end of life (EOL), and Hologic would no longer support it after May 3rd, 2019.
