You know you need to upgrade your facility with a refurbished CT scanner and you’ve decided to purchase a Philips Brilliance 64-slice. The question now becomes how to best leverage your financing to maintain a positive cash flow while you pay for the scanner.
We understand that it’s not always feasible to drop a large chunk of money into a single piece of equipment all at once. That’s why we'd like to point out a financing option that can help you align your business plans with your medical imaging needs. The income from your Philips Brilliance 64-slice won’t come in all at once, so why should your expenses go out all at once?
While there are many flexible options for financing, the most popular is to include the first year of service in the purchase price and finance the lot over 5 years.
As an example, you'll see our monthly rates for a typical refurbished Philips Brilliance 64-slice below.
Lease Payments for Philips Brilliance 64

Beyond this example, there are a number of other options you may consider. Whichever financing plan you eventually settle on, the bottom line is this: if your site needs an upgrade, you don't have to wait until you have a lump sum to get the equipment you need.
