      Tips and Guidelines for Buying a Mobile X-ray

      Three different types of mobile radiographic units are available, (line powered , capacitor-discharge, and battery-powered generators) . A wheeled cart transports the x-ray generator, X-ray tube, and tube stand, collimators, and film cassette storage drawer. It may be either manually or battery-powered motor driven.

      Tips for Buying a Mobile X-ray

      1. Ruggedness and durability are the two main factors to consider when purchasing a mobile x-ray unit (also known as a portable x-ray).

      2. Mobile radiographic units should be designed to keep an important balance between maneuverability, ease-of-use and performance; combined with high quality of x-ray output.

      3. All portable x-ray units should be lightweight and easy to assemble, carry, and transport. X-ray mobile units should be able to produce sufficient x-ray output for simple exams.

      4. Three categories of portable x-ray units are available: self-propelled, manual propulsion, and units for use outside hospitals - where mobility is necessary.

      5. Large batteries are the main power source of the self-propelled x-ray mobile units. Maneuverability is a key factor, without compromising x-ray output. These portable x-ray units, when fully charged, should be able to produce all necessary x-ray exposures without an outside power source.

      6. It is heavier to maneuver the manually propelled x-ray mobile units. These are line-powered and do not rely on batteries as a main power source. They are designed with a focus on a specific patient group.

      7. Manufacturers offer many different features for different models. Some of the options include automatic exposure control, anatomic programming, and input voltage.

      8. Mobile x-ray units that are motor-driven need battery power. For safety, they should have collision brakes, as well as a manual override for driving the unit through swinging doors.

      9. The x-ray exposure on some units is powered directly from the line voltage. On other portable x-ray units, the input line voltage charges a battery or capacitor to power the x-ray exposure.

      • Does the system include a printer?
      • Does the system include an mAS indicator?
      • Does it include a multiformat printer?
      • Did this equipment pass the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation?

      General Information

      • Are there any signs of rust?
      • What is the condition of the system mechanics?
      • When was the battery last exchanged?

      X-ray Tube

      • When was the x-ray tube last exchanged?
      • Is the arm left - right motion smooth?
      • Is the arm up - down motion smooth?
      • Is the horizontal x- ray tube rotating motion smooth?
      • Is the vertical x-ray tube rotating motion smooth?
      • Is the axis x-ray tube rotating motion smooth?
      • Is the z axis x-ray tube rotating motion smooth?
      • Is the rotation x-ray tube rotating motion smooth?
      • What is the manufacturing date of the X-ray tube?
      • What is the installation date of the X-ray tube?
      • What is the last date the X-ray tube was operated?
      • What was the work load of the X-ray tube?

      DICOM 3.0
