The best way to get the most out of your CT Scanner is for it to run at an optimal level all the time. So how can you make sure your CT Scanner is running at an optimal level? Here are some tips from the experts at Atlantis Worldwide.
Preventative Maintenance is Key: This is probably the most important step you can take to make sure your CT Scanner is working properly all of the time. Preventative maintenance by an engineer will reveal any issues before they become emergencies. They’ll check connections, review error logs, test image quality, grease bearings, clean fans and make backups of your system’s data. This kind of preventative maintenance will make a world of difference in your system’s performance.
Don’t Wait: Are you seeing intermittent error codes or system failures? These are signs of future system downtime. The sooner you can get a technician out to inspect your system, the better. You’ll avoid total shutdowns.
The Perfect Environment: Be sure to keep your CT Suite environment in perfect running order. Keep your room temperature between 65-72 degree F in order to reduce the chance of component damage. Humidity should also be controlled and monitored, 24/7, 365. Levels should remain within 40-70% relative, non-condensing humidity. It’s wise to invest in a basic alarm system that will activate a warning if these levels are exceeded.
