CT_Scanner_Project_Walk-ThroughThe process of changing your CT scanner moves through several big phases: picking the one that fits you best, building a budget, getting it up and running in your facility, and keeping it performing at peak levels. Each of these phases is packed with its own details and its own challenges. The links below will take you to articles that address many of these details and help you build more realistic expectations of the process. These articles are based on the experiences the Block Imaging team has had over the last 15 years of selling and installing CTs and, more recently, refurbishing and servicing them.

Selecting your CT

Every imaging facility is unique- specialties, traffic, user preferences all come into play. Fortunately, there is a wide variety of CT scanner equipment to accommodate these different needs. The articles below address some of the most important considerations when searching for a CT scanner.

Budgeting for your CT

These articles offer average ballpark pricing for a number of CT models. The first article is specific to GE models but, given their strong presence in the CT world, is worth checking out- even if your preferences lean toward another manufacturer.

Maintaining your CT

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 how to select a service company, what you can do keep your CT running smoothly, and what you can expect to pay for service.
