If your hospital, clinic, practice or healthcare facility has a CT Scanner on site, you might wonder why it might be a good idea for you to rent a Mobile CT Scanner. Actually, there are several situations that make renting a Mobile CT Scanner a great idea.
What happens if your current CT Scanner needs repair or replacement? What if your volume of patients exponentially increases and you can’t keep up with demand? What if you need to upgrade your current CT Suite? What if you want to test your market to see if it’s wise to add CT Scanning services to your facility? These are situations that justify renting a Mobile CT Scanner.
Creating a New CT Suite
A Mobile CT scanner could be a great solution for you if you need to build a new CT Suite. After all, construction costs have skyrocketed over the past few years, not to mention supply chain setbacks and the rising costs of materials. By renting a Mobile CT Scanner, you can provide the scanning services you need without having to invest in the construction of a permanent CT Suite.
Servicing Multiple Locations
Do you have multiple locations? It often doesn’t make financial sense to build a CT Suite in each facility. Instead, you can rent a Mobile CT Scanner that travels between each facility on a weekly, bimonthly or monthly schedule.
If your current CT Suite isn’t able to keep up with patient backlog, a rental CT Scanner could help patients get the scans they need in a timely manner.
Testing Your Market
If you’re not sure if your community can support a new CT operation, why not rent a Mobile CT Scanner and see if you get the referrals that will warrant the construction of a new suite? It gives you a chance to test the waters without a huge investment.
What Does A Mobile CT Scanner Cost?
The cost of renting a Mobile CT Scanner depends on several factors, including the make and model of the unit, the slice count of the CT in your trailer and the length of time you want to rent the Mobile CT Scanner. As a rule, if you rent the scanner for at least a year, you’ll get a discount.
Additional costs for renting a Mobile CT Scanner include a security deposit, transportation to your facility, and set-up by a CT Engineer that will work with your IT department in order to set up the PACS network connection.
If you can’t afford to install a new CT at your facility or you are experiencing disruptions with your current CT suite, renting a Mobile CT Scanner makes sense. However, if you require a long-term solution, you might consider leasing a Mobile CT Scanner instead of renting one.
