Look Through Our Inventory Today.

Advances in PET scan machine technology have been made with the goal of keeping costs lower. For example, one of the latest PET scan machines is the Siemens Biograph Horizon, which received FDA approval in 2016. According to Imaging Technology News, the following improvements have been made with this model, with the goal of lowering operations and maintenance costs:

– Reconstruction scans are performed in as little as 5 minutes, delivering the image 30 seconds after scan completion.

– Automatic standby and gentle system warm-up reduce power consumption. 

– Protocol-based exams, such as Quanti QC, run quality control procedures overnight.

– The Guardian Program has the power to predict system issues before they occur. According to Siemens, this program can greatly lower costs stemming from unplanned downtime.

The reality is that new PET scan machines are incredibly expensive. While these improvements will certainly help reduce the cost of operating and maintaining the system, you can still expect to spend upwards of 1 million dollars on popular PET scan machines from companies like Siemens, GE, and Philips.

If you want dramatic savings on the cost of a PET scan machine system — half the cost of new — keep reading to learn about how we at Marquis Medical can meet your needs.
