The first step in planning a mobile CT scanner rental project is to assess your specific project needs. Knowing the model of CT scanner currently in use tells us what the best fit for your rental would be. We will also discuss the appropriate lease term and make sure you have an option to extend coverage if needed.
Once your project needs are clarified, we can discuss the logistics issues pertaining to physically placing a unit at your facility. We will make sure your staff understands the electrical specifications, access to power connections, and parking lot requirements well in advance of the arrival of the mobile.
We will find out if you require a laser camera, CT injector, or connection to an in-house network as part of the installation. With the support of your IT manager we will set up the equipment to communicate with your hospital network. Also, all units come equipped with an on board CT injector and are XR-29 Compliant.
OTHER PRE-DELIVERY ISSUES
MPX will communicate a complete itinerary relating to the arrival of the mobile CT scanner. If applications training is needed an experienced trainer will be scheduled and will contact you directly in advance of delivery.
DAY OF DELIVERY
The trailer will be positioned per your instructions then the driver will level the unit, deploy the patient lift and walkup stairs, deploy the pop outs if required, and turn over the keys to a hospital representative. About an hour after you have connected power to your building a qualified field engineer will begin quality assurance procedures to confirm that the mobile made the trip to your site safely. Calibrations will be performed to make sure the equipment is operating to OEM specifications. Our engineer will meet with your IT manager and together they will test send images via the network to a remote location. We want to know that this is working properly before you scan your first patient. Our engineer will give an overview of the portable CT to a client representative before leaving the site.
