Top 3 Reasons you Need to Upgrade Your X-ray Equipment
Is your portable x-ray equipment constantly breaking down or outdated? Here are the top 3 reasons to consider an upgrade for your practice and your patients.
Medical imaging has a vital role in modern healthcare systems. Just like any other type of device, medical imaging isn’t free from malfunctioning. Older portable x-ray equipment has a high risk of breakdowns. This can cause diagnosis and treatment delays for the patient.
Equipment failures can also compromise the safety problems both for the patient and the medical staff. As a result of wear and tear, all medical imaging equipment eventually needs to be replaced.
So how do you know when is it time to replace your x-ray equipment?
Frequent need for repairs
X-ray equipment should be in top working order to produce high-quality images. You know how inconvenient it can be for your business and patients when your imaging equipment is not in operating condition.
When an imaging device goes out of service for any amount of time, it has a negative impact on business. Appointments will have to be rescheduled resulting in frustration to patients. In cases where your portable x-ray machine is not in service more than it's in use, it's time to get new equipment.
Outmoded x-ray equipment
Today's patients expect to find up-to-date, modern technology when they visit your facility. With the current status of your digital imaging equipment, does it underperform compared to other imaging devices available on the market?
If your device is outdated, it may be time to get a new portable x-ray machine. Outmoded equipments require constant and expensive maintenance and run on older components.
Equipment older than ten years is no longer state-of-the-art equipment, and replacement is necessary. Compared with new x-ray equipment, operating costs of older x-ray equipment is higher. Maintenance will be impossible if there are no spare parts available.
Unable to keep up with demand
Sometimes, the reason for a replacement is because your machine is unable to keep up with higher demand for your practice. If you started with a basic device that can handle a small client load and your patient load gets bigger with time, your basic x-ray equipment can't keep up with the increasing demand.
I would be practical to purchase new imaging equipment for your growing practice.
