Access More Savings
The Access CT is built to help reduce the cost of running diagnostics, especially in a busy and usually tightly-funded hospital such as UCH. Since tubes are the main cost of running a CT Scanner, Access CT comes with longer Tube life, which will save costs that otherwise been put on the low-income patients who frequent the hospital. With Access Ct Scanners, the cost of having to train multiple operators is much reduced, and therefore there is no need for rescans or long periods of shutting down due to the absence of a technician.
The DuraDiagnost is an innovative new technology that greatly reduces the lifetime cost of owning and operating a diagnostics room.
