Extend Your CT Tube Life by 40% or Greater

Posted by Vikki Harmonay on Tue, Jul 22, 2014 @ 13:07 PM

It is no secret that the most expensive consumable component associated with CT scanning is the CT X-Ray Tube. Some CT Tubes can cost $200,000 and more for a new replacement.

The attached paper will describe how and why CT Tube Life is extended when SafeCT, or any OEM iterative reconstruction solution for that matter, is incorporated to achieve low-dose CT scanning capabilities. Many SafeCT customers tell us that they have experienced from 40% and up to 4X (four times) life extension on their CT tube using SafeCT!

Need Radiology Equipment? Put the 179 Tax Deduction to Work for You

Posted by Vikki Harmonay on Tue, Dec 3, 2013 @ 16:12 PM

Does your practice, clinic or hospital need new radiology equipment? There’s never been a better time to take the leap, thanks to the new Section 179 Tax Deduction. You can find it on page 154 of H.R. 8: American Taxpayer Relief of 2012, which is better know as the “Fiscal Crisis Bill.” But what you really need to know is this: you can claim deductions on new or used radiology equipment and necessary supportive hardware and software.  And more importantly, you can actually purchase the equipment and make small monthly payments to pay for the use of it over time through a properly structured lease. Surprisingly, the tax savings can also be used to make some of the monthly payments, which could reduce the overall cost of ownership.

The answer depends on your situation. Leasing medical imaging equipment can be a good option for business owners who have limited capital or need equipment that must be upgraded every few years, while purchasing equipment can be a better option for established businesses or for equipment that has a long usable life.
