Cath-Lab-Room-Dimensions

Proper room dimensions for a GE cath/angio lab continue to be a topic of frequent discussion here in the Block Imaging project management department. We’ve been asked so many times, by so many people, that several of us got the dimensions tattooed on our forearms for quick reference. Later, in a deep fit of tattoo regret, we decided it would have been a better idea to simply post them on our blog- hence, the post you are reading right now. This article has been updated from a previous version to include the most recent room dimension recommendations for GE's cath lab product line, from the bread-and-butter Innova series to the newer IGS models. The only down side? We had to update our tattoos as well (ouch!)

If you are considering the purchase of a GE cath lab, you’ll want to check the size of the room you plan to have it installed in against the OEM recommendations in the table below. These recommendations are guidelines, not firm rules, but they can help you begin to plan for your incoming lab.
