Yes, we can offer advice on CT systems and installations. We can also offer a free no-obligation site visit to check access to the site and indicative room plan. Please contact us for further details!
All systems are different. There is usually a minimum room size needed so we can advise on a system that will suit your room.
Shielding for CT systems needs to take into account the current and future usage of adjacent rooms, including rooms above and below.
Most CT systems will require 3 phase power. If you need 3 phase power to be connected, this can time time to put in place and needs to be included in your budget. We can advise you on your power requirements for CT.
The RPA calculations of CT shielding will take into account the number of and type of scans you are likely to perform per year. Try not to underestimate – it will be more costly to add extra shielding later if you perform a lot more in reality than you anticipate at the outset.
An RPA should be involved at the planning sae and they must be appointed in writing. The RPA will advise you on room shielding required for CT and the relevant ionising raditation regulations that apply. A list of current Certificate Holders of the RPA 2000 Certificate can be found here.
Before commencing work with ionising radiation, the employer must conduct a risk assessment to identify measures needed to restrict exposures to employees, patients, and other persons.
We service and maintain all the CT systems we sell, but we can also provide service and maintenance contracts for your existing CT installations, regardless of manufacturer. Subject to pre-contract inspection, we can take over your existing provider, whilst providing substantial cost savings. Contact us for more information, or visit our Service and Maintenance Contracts page.
