Of all the modalities in the diagnostic imaging arena, CT has undergone, perhaps, the most extensive transformation and adaptation since its emergence in hospitals and clinics in the 1970's. Doubling, quadrupling, even octupling slice counts, declining radiation doses, reconstruction algorithms that increase image detail- the list goes on. More recently, we’ve seen remarkable breakthroughs in wide area detector technology which have greatly enhanced clinicians' ability to image the entire heart and brain in a single rotation. These advancements in technology have rapidly shortened the time to diagnose acute onset of strokes, and early signs of cardiac disease. If you find yourself preparing to upgrade your standard CT technology to this type of advanced platform, here are a few keys to selling your existing system to help offset the cost and clear the way.

Used Medical Imaging Equipment Valuations: FMV versus OLV

FMV versus OLV.jpg

While the automotive industry can easily point to Kelley Blue Book for current and depreciated values, putting a firm value figure on diagnostic imaging equipment has no similar benchmark for standardization. Moore's Law (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense, integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years), rapidly developing software, and a seemingly endless scope of imaging modalities and manufacturers are just a few of the factors keeping the "Blue Book" level of relative ease and consistency out of reach.

Of course, everyone who asks, "What is my imaging system worth?" would love to have an immediate answer with as many zeros as possible. The aforementioned factors, however, combined with the circumstances of your decision to sell, mean the proper response to this question requires that even more questions be asked. We'll breakdown the key questions below to help you learn what to expect as you bring your used diagnostic imaging equipment to market.

The biggest differences: communication is clearer, and the project is smoother and simpler.

To give you a better idea of why, we'll use our process below as an example of what the sale and removal of your used medical imaging equipment looks like when your buyer has a dedicated project management team.
