CardiArc® can fit in the smallest of examination rooms.
Not only can it fit there, it can scan there, too!
Just because a scanner can be fit into a small room does not mean that it is practical to use it there.
Some points to consider when choosing a camera for a small room:
- Does the entire system - including computer, acquisition unit, collimator stand, power conditioner, etc - fit in the room. Everything the CardiArc system needs is built-in and self-contained.
- Most locales require a minimum clearance distance between moving machinery (e.g. a camera head) and the nearest wall. Will you be able to comply? CardiArc has no external moving parts. It can, therefore, be placed right against a wall, if desired.
Does the scanner provide sufficient radiation shielding to allow the technologist to remain in the room with the patient? Only CardiArc provides built-in technologist shielding.
- Is there room for the door to open and close without striking the patient, the technologist or the scanner?
- Can the patient be positioned in the scanner without climbing over cables or machinery?
- Can the technologist operate the system, position the patient and reach the patient in an emergency without climbing over cables or equipment?
