High-end computed tomography (CT) scanners are capable of producing stunning 4-D images of almost any anatomy. Many hospitals feel pressured to quickly adopt the latest technology, but the expense sometimes outweighs the benefit. More often than not, costly features go underused.
The pressure to adopt the latest technology versus what is sufficient to meet clinical needs makes the buying process complicated and filled with many questions: Does my facility need the high-end model or will a more basic model suffice? Will my facility use all of the features offered?
What maintenance options are best for my facility? What purchasing or maintenance contract language should be avoided?
With approximately 14,000 CT scanners in use in the country, many facilities have asked the same questions. So, how do you choose the best system to meet your clinical and budgetary needs?
In this 90-minute web conference, Cost vs. Reality – What CT Scanner Should I Choose?, presenters from ECRI Institute will review the CT technology presently available and discuss the factors that you should be considering when selecting a new CT scanner.
Attendees will gain an understanding of what type of facility needs a high-end CT scanner and the types for which a lower-cost option is acceptable; how to gauge if a CT scanner upgrade is necessary; and get an idea of which contracting option is best for their facility. Participants will be given ample time to ask questions of our experienced panel.
