One of the biggest trends in medical imaging these days is mobile imaging technologies. More and more technologies are being leveraged outside of the traditional hospital setting.
MRI scanners cost millions of dollars. Oftentimes, hospitals and health care systems are hesitant to swap out older generation MRI scanners for new ones because of the exorbitant costs. And while software advances and rapidly evolving upgrades can help slow down hardware obsolescence, it’s not the answer. What CAN be the answer is Mobile MRI.
Mobile MRI trucks are self-contained imaging suites that can be delivered directly to a site. There’s no need to build out a facility to accommodate an MRI. A Mobile MRI can reduce operating costs while maintaining state-of-the-art capabilities for a health care facility. It can help hospitals, clinics and practices avoid large capital expenditures due to budgetary constraints. It’s also convenient if your facility is undergoing construction or renovation as you can continue to serve patients. A Mobile MRI can also serve patients while a hospital’s equipment is being upgraded or experiencing downtime for repairs.
In times of natural disasters, Mobile MRIs are a great solution. And for day-to-day needs, it can help reduce patient backlog.
The Beauty of Mobile Modular Systems
Does your healthcare facility want to expand operations but you don’t want to begin a major capital project? A Mobile Modular Systems is a great option, requiring only a 480 Volt, 3-phase power with 150 Amp service. A level space to park a 50-60 ft. X 12 ft-wide Mobile Modular System. Once the unit is trailed in place, you’ll be ready to start scanning!
