Aquilion 64 Lease

If you've been scanning at a lower slice count, a 64-slice CT represents a powerful step forward for your capabilities. Among the models you're likely to encounter as you begin considering the best 64-slice CT for you is Toshiba's Aquilion 64.

Like many of its contemporaries, the Aquilion offers improvements in image quality, dose reduction, and general workflow. Of course, along with these advantages comes a higher cost that, for some, may be a touch difficult to pay in a lump sum. In situations like these, leasing options from a refurbished equipment vendor can help make it happen. Here's a look at our most popular lease program.

GE Excite Upgrades

Among major MRI manufacturers, GE has one of the largest install bases in the US. Within that install base, the Excite has been quite a popular model. However, systems like the Excite are aging, causing many to begin considering their options for replacement.

But while the Excite is aging, imaging facilities are feeling the pinch between advancing their MRI technology to better serve patients and operating within tightening budget constraints. To help meet both of those needs, we suggest considering a field upgrade to the 15x, 16x, or 23x platform level. To qualify that suggestion, we'll share seven benefits you can reap when you choose an Excite upgrade over replacement.

The Imaging Equipment Service Risk Spectrum: Where Do You Fall?

Posted by Chris Kinnas

Service Risk Appetite

Any facility that uses medical imaging equipment has to determine their own appetite for risk when it comes to system maintenance. Some prefer more expensive, comprehensive coverage that provides a plan for all contingencies. Others are willing to assume the majority of their equipment risk and manage their maintenance and its costs as they are needed. Still others choose a service arrangement somewhere in the middle, with coverage that balances cost with peace of mind. The question is, what concerns you more: paying for coverage benefits you may not have to use, or having to cover 100% of the cost of a major part and/or emergency repair?

Wherever you and the team at your facility may fall on this risk appetite spectrum, there are flexible service offerings available to you from independent service organizations (ISO). To help you gain a better understanding of the options you have on the ISO market, we'll share the service programs Block Imaging offers as an example below.
