If you're researching renting a mobile CT scanner for the first time, we'll explain everything you need to know. A typical mobile CT scanner rental trailer is a completely self-contained and weatherproof computed tomography scanning suite on wheels. The mobile CT trailers come complete with HVAC, power-operated handicap entrance ramp, radiation-shielded exam room, patient changing area, and operator's area with a workstation.
The mobile CT rental systems do require an external source of power (200 amps, 480 volts), which can come directly from your facility's electrical system or through a generator. Generally, connecting the trailer to your facility's electrical service is a less expensive and more environmentally friendly option than using a generator, as generators run on diesel fuel.
A mobile CT scanner can do everything a normal in-house CT imaging suite can, and we take pride in making sure that our mobile environments look as nice as an in-house imaging suite. We offer systems that will allow you to conduct all of the same exams with the same software and user experience that you are used to. All of our mobile CT trailer interiors are built with medical-grade materials, neutral and calming colors, as well as modern and upscale cabinets, workstations, and art. Our mobile CT scanning environments will make your employees proud and your patients confident in your abilities.
The dimensions of a mobile CT scanner rental trailer are typically 48 feet long, 8.5 feet wide, and 13.5 feet tall and weigh around 30 tons. We also offer SuperCoach trailers which are quite a bit larger at 60 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 13.5 feet tall. The mobile CT trailers require a very solid foundation to be placed on due to their weight of 30 tons. Our preference is to place the mobile CT trailer on a concrete pad, but it is possible to place a CT trailer on an asphalt parking lot if that is all that is available, but we have to make special accommodations to distribute the unit's weight in order to ensure that the system will not sink into the asphalt. Ultimately, if you have the room for a mobile CT scanner rental trailer, we can work through the rest of the requirements to have it installed and running smoothly at your facility.
We work with organizations and facilities of all types and sizes, from large government health systems to individual family practice offices and even veterinarians. We are able to work with government entities as well as private organizations. We are able to overcome most placement issues and have even installed mobile CT scanners in tricky areas including a New York City alleyway and even a hospital courtyard. Regardless of the size or resources of your organization, if you have the room for the system, we can install one of our mobile CT machines at your site.
We are already an approved vendor with many major healthcare systems and are happy to comply with any initiation procedures your organization may have. We are able to deliver our mobile CT scanner rental units anywhere in the US, Canada, and their territories. We have worked previously with both US and Canadian government entities, and almost every major health system in North America. Whatever requirements your organization has, we can certainly meet them. Our team is responsive, knowledgeable of and quick to complete paperwork.
The mobile CT scanner rental systems do require an external source of electricity (200 amps, 480 volts). We can provide the necessary power to the mobile CT scan machine by way of a direct electrical connection to your facility or via a diesel generator. Our preference would be to work with your facility's engineer or a local contractor to run electricity to the mobile CT trailer directly from your utilities. Running a generator on fuel is far more costly than a direct electrical connection to your utilities, but it can certainly be done if it is required.
We build all of our own mobile systems, where many other companies just broker deals and swap paper behind their desks. At our core, we are a company founded by engineers and we take an enormous amount of pride in developing and building the highest quality mobile CT systems on the market. We know our mobile environments inside and out, so if there is ever an issue, we know immediately how to resolve it. All of our engineers have an intimate knowledge of our systems and can quickly service the mobile environment. In fact, our service engineers often play a role in building our mobile systems and know them inside and out. Many other companies often don't have the resources to send out their own service engineers for preventative maintenance or other service, but instead contract with a local service engineer who has never seen the system before and will take up more of your time than necessary. We will always send out an extremely knowledgeable engineer who likely played a part installing and building the system to perform maintenance and resolve any service issues.
The mobile CT exam rooms are completely shielded by lead-lined walls to protect technicians and anyone near the trailer from the radiation of the CT scan. Safety is our top concern at Absolute Medical Imaging. We strive to ensure that our mobile CT scanning trailers are as safe as possible. We perform regular preventative maintenance on our mobile CT scanners to keep them running safely and in optimal condition.
The appearance of our mobile CT unit interiors and exteriors are always top quality. By default, our mobile CT trucks are painted white to blend in with any facility. We do offer custom exterior wraps which can include your logo and any information or artwork that you would like to include on the mobile unit's exterior. We do our best to ensure that all of our interiors rival the quality and comfort of an in-house imaging suite. Most of our mobile CT rental units have pop-out side sections to make the area larger, more open, and easier to maintain the equipment inside.
