Setting up an X-ray center requires careful consideration. Not only do you have to invest in expensive X-ray machines, devices and accessories, you also need to make sure you provide the clients what they are looking for. The Wolf X-ray equipment and accessories can easily be purchased through Express Medical Supplies. But there is a lot more to setting up a top-notch radiology diagnostic center.
Make sure you select a location that is easily accessible and has adequate parking space for cars and ambulances. It is helpful if there are hospitals in the vicinity, as it will ensure a constant stream of patients coming in. There also is an option of collaborating with the hospitals and clinics in the neighborhood, but that is for later.
Large Floor Space
A radiology center is not just about hooking up a Wolf X-ray machine and taking images. There is a lot more to it. Make sure the floor is large enough for the following:
- Waiting area at the reception and inside
- Back office operations (marketing, accounts and administration)
- Rest rooms for staff, patients and visitors
- Training room
- X-ray room
- Mammography room
- Ultrasound room
- Changing rooms for staff
- CT scan room
- MRI room and control center
- Cafeteria for visitors and staff
- Technician work room
- Server room for computer hardware
Even though you will be working with world-class Wolf X-ray machines and accessories, it is important the structure has been reinforced to protect patients, staff and visitors from radiation. You would require RF insulation for the MRI room and a minimum of 3mm thickness lead rooms for X-ray, mammography and CT scan rooms.
Uninterrupted Power Supply
As the devices, machines and accessories require uninterrupted power, it is important you take measures to ensure this. This is in case of a blackout or storm that causes a power failure. It is best to be prepared than regret it later on.
High Speed Internet Connectivity and LAN
You will require high speed Internet connectivity, as many hospitals, doctors and clinics now want radiology images by email and in soft copies. Not only should your radiology diagnostic center be able to send images, it also should be able to receive. And all computers and laptops within the center should be connected through a local area network (LAN) for easy access to the software you are using for your center.
