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.
