What is the maximum weight capacity for my CT table? We get this question, or some form of it, nearly every day from doctors, technologists, and administrators alike. The short answer is, “It depends on the model.”
Even the lowest-capacity CT table will probably be enough for 99 out of 100 patients, but for certain specialties, and for that 1%, it's important to make sure that you look into models that can perform the intended scans on every scheduled patient that walks through your door. Forgetting about a tiny, yet crucial, detail (like whether or not your patient can actually be scanned with your CT) can cost your center time and money that don't need to be lost.
To help you avoid problems, we've listed many of today’s most popular CTs and their respective table load capacities below. If you don’t see your model in the list, please contact us and let us help get you the answer.
