5 Reasons you should seriously consider a Refurbished MRI or CT Scanner!

In India, while Healthcare Tourism has become a booming industry in several tier-1 cities with several hospitals equipped with world-class infrastructure, the same cannot be said for tier 2 and 3 cities, where budgets for acquiring high-end equipment are very low.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) scanners rank high among the most expensive pieces of equipment that any hospital or healthcare provider will invest into. In fact, given the high cost of acquisition, many smaller facilities are forced to forego these key medical imaging assets altogether.

But there’s a better way. What if your healthcare facility could acquire an advanced MRI or CT scanner at a significantly lower cost, without needing to compromise on quality or reliability? This is exactly what Refurbished MRI and CT Scanners from a trusted solution provider can bring to the table, with a thorough inspection and certification process followed for each machine.

Here are 5 reasons why you should seriously consider opting for a refurbished machine for your MRI or CT scanner needs.

1. Add new capabilities to your facility

If the cost of a new MRI or CT scanner has been holding you back, you may well find that the significantly lower cost of a refurbished machine fits into your budget. This means that you can add an important new diagnostic capability to your hospital or healthcare facility, which will in turn lead to improved diagnoses, enhanced quality of patient care, and indeed, a stronger reputation for your facility.

2. Upgrade to a higher-end system

If your budgets would allow you to invest into a base model MRI or CT scanner, but your requirements would be better served by a more advanced model, considering refurbished equipment is a great way to bridge this cost gap. This means that you can leverage more sophisticated medical imaging capabilities to ensure even higher accuracy of detection and
diagnosis that you would be able to do with a basic system.

3. Minimise training time

MRIs and CT scanners are complex pieces of equipment, and require considerable training and familiarisation for technicians to be able to operate them at an optimal level. Refurbished equipment is often widely used and popular models from major manufacturers, meaning that there is every chance your technicians will already be familiar with how to use them. This means you can hit the ground running, and begin operations with minimal lead time.

4. Inclusion of updates and upgrades

Over the course of their lifespan, MRIs and CT scans often receive upgrades and updates to hardware and software, to help them perform specific tasks more effectively. Equipping a new machine with these upgrades can be expensive and time consuming, but many times refurbished equipment includes these upgrades, which means they deliver even greater
capabilities without the need for additional investment.

5. Lower carbon footprint

Refurbished MRIs and CT scanners also help you reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint. That’s because you eliminate the need for manufacturing one more new machine, while also postponing the need to recycle an existing one. Considering that the healthcare industry is generally a domain where sustainability is hard to achieve, this is a good way to take a small step in the direction of a greener future.
