Most of us are aware by now of the image quality, workflow, and cost benefits of taking our X-ray imaging fully digital, but some of us are still weighing exactly which method of going digital will be the best fit for both our clinical needs and our budget. 

One of the methods we discuss with buyers most often is bundling the purchase of a new analog X-ray room and a new digital flat-panel detector. A bundle like this provides a good balance of technical improvements and capital expenses.

GE VCT 32 Lease Price Guide

Upgrading your CT equipment to a 32-slice scanner can seem a little out of reach as an outright purchase. If that sounds like the scenario your facility is in, the good news is that there are providers who understand this and offer options that can make that higher slice count more attainable: a three, four, or five-year lease.

Beyond the most apparent benefit (reducing starting costs), some lease plans build the cost of the first year of a service agreement into the total and spread it across the duration of the lease. This gives buyers a year of lower payments before having to tap into the regular service budget they reserve for their entire imaging equipment stable.

Keep reading to find what you can expect to pay each month to lease a GE VCT 32 under three common lease terms.

We've discussed functionality and up-front cost in other articles, but, because there are more costs involved in owning an X-ray system than just the price tag on it, we thought it was about time to talk about the overall cost of ownership.

We'll be using a refurbished GE Definium 8000 and a refurbished GE Proteus with a wireless DR panel retrofit as our examples throughout. Keep reading to see how the figures stack up.
