Over the past few years, Siemens has gained significant market share among CT scanner manufacturers. We believe the primary reason for this is the ways they’ve continued to improve on their innovations and overall product quality across every price point. Their current generation of CT scanners is no exception. But, while availability of these systems is rare in the secondary space, we do still have quite a few conversations with buyers about them. To help keep all you other buyers out there informed about the market, we've compiled a quick summary of what the latest models in Siemens' Somatom line have to offer.

Sensation 16 Lease Refresh

We all know it's important to have the right tools to serve patients, but many of us also know that these tools can come at a cost too high to buy them outright. If the tool your facility happens to need is a 16-slice CT scanner, this article has good news for you: lease terms are available to make upgrading more feasible for imaging centers that need to be budget-conscious.

While it's understood that leasing equipment lowers starting costs, you should also know that some lease providers include the price of the scanner's first year of service coverage in a bundle price and break it out across the full term of the lease as part of the monthly payment. This allows for 12 months of lower payments before you ever have to tap into the funds you would normally set aside for equipment upkeep.

Below, find what you can expect your monthly payments to be for a lease on a Siemens Sensation 16 under our most commonly purchased term length, 60-months.
