DO I RETROFIT AN X-RAY ROOM OR BUILD A NEW X-RAY ROOM?

The first step in your search for the perfect product is to figure out what you’ll need for your practise. Most chiropractors have two options from which to choose. You’re either starting a new practise, expanding your current one, or upgrading an outdated x-ray system. In that situation, you’ll need to invest in a brand-new digital x-ray system.

You may also have an operational x-ray system and desire to shift away from film and chemicals, or you may have older digital equipment, such as a CR or older DR panel. You’d be retrofitting your existing x-ray system in that instance.

IS IT BETTER TO BUY A NEW OR USED DIGITAL X-RAY SYSTEM?

Many chiropractors may look for old digital x-ray systems in order to save money on the transition to digital. For others, this might be a significant cost savings that benefits them. Many others, on the other hand, experience buyer’s remorse because it’s a gamble with no promises.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DOES A CHIROPRACTIC X-RAY ROOM HAVE?

For chiropractors wanting to purchase x-ray equipment, there are a variety of options available, and your final decision will be based on how you intend to use the system, the size of your x-ray room, and available electrical. There are several different Chiropractic x-ray tools, but we’ll focus on the most frequent ones.

A typical chiropractic X-Ray room includes the following items:

– Wall stand

– X-Ray generator

– Tube stand

– X-ray tube

– Collimator

– DR Panel

STAND FOR WALL

The DR panel, CR Cassette, or Film Based Cassette is put on the x-ray wall stand to capture the x-ray. The wall stands are typically 19 by 19 inches in size and can accommodate up to a 17 x 17 inch DR panel.

GENERATOR OF X-RAYS

The x-ray generator is the x-ray system’s engine, controlling the amount of power required to produce an x-ray image. Generators come in a variety of power ratings, but most chiropractors choose for a 32kW or 40kW system.

TUBE FOR X-RAY

An x-ray tube is a type of energy converter that takes electrical energy from the generator and converts it into two different types of energy: x-radiation (1%) and heat (99 percent ). Because heat is an undesired byproduct of this conversion process, x-radiation is formed by transforming electron energy into photons. The x-ray tube performs this highly particular energy conversion.

The x-ray tube can be configured in a variety of ways, but the most frequent sold in chiropractic is the 140,000 heat unit, which you can upgrade if necessary.

COLLIMATOR

The Collimator is mounted on the tube stand and allows the operator to focus the x-ray beam on a specified location. A light can be used to show the collimated area, which will clearly display where the x-ray or radiation will go. Some collimators have a laser to assist you in aligning the x-ray tube with the patient.
