Mobile Refurb Header

The first time people contact us to rent mobile imaging equipment, questions often come up about the condition and the quality of the trailers. This stands to reason, as imaging trailers can sometimes see long trips between facilities and the same wear and tear that other vehicles encounter on the road. Worse- a facility may have even had a bad experience with a previous provider.

To answer these questions, and put renter's minds at ease, we've compiled the refurbishment steps used to ensure the quality, road-worthiness, and overall condition of imaging trailers available for rental from Block Imaging. Take a look at the steps below to see what you can expect.

GE's Innova series is one of the most popular, widely-installed cath lab product lines in the world, but they're certainly not a one-size-fits-all solution. Among the Innovas, there are three different digital detector sizes, each of which stands out from the others in certain sets of applications. So which one will fit the best at your facility?

In the short video below, we'll break down for you which Innova detector size is best suited for which area of interventional specialty.

Do I Need a Short, Medium, or Long Table for My GE VCT 32 or 64 CT?

VCT_Table_Sizes

This is a common question for us and, generally, we begin our answer with a little clarification: The VCT 32 and VCT 64 only come with two table sizes, medium or long. Much of the confusion comes from casual references to "short" tables (by which the speaker actually means the medium table) and also GE's decision to designate one of them as "medium", which implies to the layperson that there is a third "short" size.

Interestingly enough, the medium table is technically the standard table for the VCT series, with the long table being optional. Even so, in the secondary marketplace we come across long tables much more frequently than medium. Because of this peculiarity, and because table length can make a difference in your facility's clinical capabilities, we're going to share with you why your VCT table length matters, and how you can tell which one you're looking at - without getting out your tape measure.
