While outfitting a veterinary practice with imaging equipment is very much like outfitting a practice that serves human patients, it pays to be aware of the particulars that set the process apart. Through our experiences working with veterinary practices, we've seen a number of well-laid plans change, adapt, or go back to the drawing board altogether because of one or more of these differences.

To help those of you who may be in the market for veterinary X-ray or C-arm machines, we want to share three considerations that many people overlook as they begin to plan their veterinary imaging equipment project. Paying attention to them and being just a little flexible in your planning can save you delays and headaches in the long run.

CT Tube Price Guide.jpg

Replacing a CT scanner's X-ray tube is an eventuality for any facility that uses the technology- an eventuality that doesn't always happen according to typical lifespan expectations, and doesn't always happen at your budgetary "high tide". Because of this fact, it pays to be aware of the options you have to replace your CT tube for less.

To help you know what to expect when you need to replace your CT tube, we've compiled current price averages for some of the most popular CT tubes in use right now, including low to moderate use used tubes, new after-market tubes (where applicable), and- for comparison's sake- brand-new OEM tubes.

Service Support Questions.jpg

Today's marketplace affords dozens of options in purchasing refurbished equipment. On top of that, many providers offer warranty periods ranging from 30 days to a full year. This is great, right? Warranties provide an added peace of mind, help maintain uptime, and help control costs if something should go wrong with the system. Yes, all of that is true- but only if the company serving the warranty is well-equipped to carry it out.

Simply being offered a warranty is no guarantee that you'll actually be satisfied with the service. The following are a few questions to ask your prospective vendor about their warranty fulfillment to make sure their commitment isn't creating a false peace of mind.
