Selecting Your Cath Lab

Every imaging facility is unique- specialties, traffic, physician preferences all come into play. Fortunately, they are a wide variety of cath lab configurations to accommodate the many different needs. The articles below address some of the most important considerations when searching for a cath lab.

Budgeting for Your Cath Lab

These articles offer average ballpark pricing for the purchase of a number of cath labs, as well as leasing options for some of the most popular models.

Installing your cath lab

The next steps in your project will be the most complicated. There is more to the logistics of preparing your site for your new cath lab, getting it into the building, and installing it for use than there may initially seem. Click through on the links below to get a feel for what will be involved.

Maintaining your cath lab

Because this is equipment you'll be relying on, you'll want to take steps to keep up maintenance on it. Take a look at the articles below to find out why ongoing service is so important, what it looks like, and what you can expect to pay for it.

The articles linked above cover a lot of details, but there's still much more to know and take action on before you purchase, install, and begin to scan with your new cath lab. If you have questions about any of the steps, we're happy to help you. Contact us or check out our Cath Lab Buyer's Guide for more info.
