MRI systems are not only very expensive pieces of equipment, they are also relied upon by physicians to help accurately diagnose and treat any number of conditions. It’s important to have a service agreement in place that will ensure optimal performance of your MRI  and will cover routine maintenance, cryo-refrigeration, repairs and part replacement when …
X-rays have officially been around since the late 19th century. The invention of the X-ray was credited to Wilhelm Rontgen in 1895; however, it’s thought that they were accidentally produced by William Morgan in 1795. Either way, they have become an incredibly useful tool in the modern world, especially in the medical field.  An X-ray …
SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) imaging is a nuclear medicine procedure where the NM “camera” rotates around the patient acquiring images at specific angles for a predefined amount of time. For cardiac you image for 180 degrees, for all other SPECT images (brain, bone, etc.) you image for 360 degrees. This data is then …
CT scanners have become commonplace in hospitals due to their ability to capture internal images of patients using X-rays, making them helpful for accurately diagnosing numerous conditions as well as tracking the effectiveness of treatments. They’re particularly useful in diagnosing injuries and conditions in emergencies due to how quick CT scans are, which is why …
MRIs use powerful magnets to capture cross-sectional images that allow doctors to more accurately diagnose their patients. A massive amount of energy is required to produce the powerful magnetic field needed to capture such detailed diagnostic images. In order to use that much energy, the MRI system must be superconductive, which requires the wires in …
Most MRI systems are large, intricate machines requiring complicated and expensive installation. If anything goes wrong with your MRI system, there’s a good chance the repair costs will be quite high, especially if certain parts need to be replaced. Not only could this hurt the bottom line of your medical facility, but it could render …
