CT-Tube-Replacement-Cost

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.

Cone-Beam-CT-Versus-Traditional-CT

You think of large machines taking up an entire room and scanning patients from head to toe as they lie on a table.

Now, however, CT is much more than that. We're going to break down the differences in technology and applications between the CT scanners you generally think of and the more specialized cone beam CT (CBCT).

GE-Optima-CT-Scanners

GE is nothing if not consistent when it comes to naming conventions. First it was Hispeeds and Lightspeeds, then Discoveries, and now: Optimas. There are Optima X-ray rooms, Optima MRI scanners, and Optima CTs. I'm not even sure what else, but my kitchen is due for an upgrade and an Optima refrigerator sounds pretty cutting edge. Other Optima modalities aside though, this article is intended to clarify the various types of Optima CT.

Below, we'll share a brief overview of the four members of the GE Optima CT scanner family, including slice count, tube type, ASIR availability, and special features.
