Mobile CT scanners offer a convenient solution for healthcare facilities that require temporary solutions during equipment maintenance or upgrades or lack the resources to purchase and maintain their own equipment.
However, before making a decision, it’s essential to consider several critical factors to guarantee the best outcome. In this blog, we will provide valuable insights on what you need to know when renting a mobile CT scanner from Catalina Imaging. By gaining a better understanding of the process, you can make an informed decision and ensure your facility has access to the high-quality imaging technology it requires.
When it comes to renting a mobile CT scanner, planning is a crucial aspect that can’t be overlooked. Unlike car rentals, mobile CT scanners are specialized devices that require extensive logistics to transport from site to site. Therefore, we recommend that you plan your rental well in advance.
Our team of experienced CT engineers can help answer any questions you have regarding electrical requirements, trucking, and siting issues. After you provide us with your dates and unit requirements, we will send you a quote for your review and approval.
Upon your approval, we will create an agreement that secures your unit, outlining the pricing and timeframe. We will then send you a copy of the agreement via email for your approval. By creating an agreement, we ensure that both parties are on the same page and can move forward with confidence in the rental process.
When your mobile CT scanner is set for delivery, you can expect our team to arrive a day or two early, at no extra charge, to fully test the unit and resolve any issues that may have arisen during the transport.
Our crew will transport the unit to your specified location, where they will set up the trailer and connect it to power. An engineer from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) will then arrive to assist your IT personnel with networking the CT to interface with your site. If you are renting a unit that is identical to your in-house CT, the OEM engineer may even be able to load your existing protocols (software revision dependent).
At Catalina Imaging, we offer ongoing maintenance and support to make sure your unit is always in top condition.
In the unlikely event of any issues arising with the trailer, our team will take swift action to resolve them. Likewise, any concerns with the CT scanner will be addressed by an OEM engineer who is under contract with us. Our units are covered by full-service contracts with the OEM so that you can expect speedy repairs and optimal uptime.
Rest assured that we’ve got you covered all throughout the rental period.
When your lease period comes to an end, the OEM engineer will coordinate with your facility to prepare the mobile CT scanner for removal.
To ensure the privacy of your patients, your staff will be responsible for removing all patient data and personal items from the unit, as well as performing a final cleaning. Once the unit is ready for removal, our driver will arrive to disconnect the unit from power and carefully remove it from your site. We strive to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible, so you can focus on providing quality care to your patients.
