The heart of your CT scanner is its X-ray tube, which beats life into every examination. However, even the tube has a limited lifespan and, by necessity, requires replacement periodically. That's why there's no time like the present to learn more about your CT X-ray tube and what you can expect from it in terms of lifespan, replacement cost, and the possibility of giving it a second chance through repair and reloading.

In the case of the Toshiba Aquilion series, especially those that see use for cardiac applications, there's a good chance the tube in question is a CXB-750D/4A. We've talked with our CT Engineering and Parts Teams and compiled the details so that you can be better prepared for your next tube investment.
