Upgrade Your Health Clinic and Surgery Center Equipment while Going Green
From CT scans to ultrasound devices, these equipment help practitioners to have a precise diagnosis of their patients’ conditions. Each imaging device possesses distinct capabilities and is well-suited for examining specific anatomical structures; thus, it is important for these electronics to be up-to-date. Proper disposal and responsible recycling of these outdated electronics are essential not only for our safety but also for the environment.
X-rays offer not only a quick and straightforward diagnostic method but also a cost-effective option. However, undergoing an x-ray requires exposure to a certain level of radiation, and the equipment used to capture the images may involve potentially hazardous substances, such as chemicals. Prior to proper disposal, the silver nitrate component present on x-ray films needs to be removed. DTG Recycle offers reliable x-ray film recycling services.
Computed Tomography (CT/CAT) Scan Equipment
Computed tomography (CT) scans, also known as CAT scans, utilize X-rays to produce highly detailed and precise images of the body. These images offer sharper and more detailed insights compared to traditional film X-rays. CT scans are employed in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. During the procedure, the patient is required to remain still on a motorized platform that slowly moves around a circular CT scanner. A narrow, fan-shaped X-ray beam is projected across the body to capture the necessary data.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Machines
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a non-invasive imaging system that enables the visualization of soft tissues without exposing the patient to radioactive materials. Instead, it involves passing the patient through a powerful magnetic field, which temporarily realigns the protons within the body, creating the images. It is important to note that individuals with metal implants should avoid MRI, and during the scan, patients must maintain absolute stillness to prevent blurring of the images.
Ultrasound imaging utilizes high-frequency sound waves that are directed toward the body’s tissues to generate visual representations. This technique involves a probe that makes contact with the patient’s skin, transmitting the sound waves. The images are displayed on a computer screen. Notably, ultrasound does not involve the emission of radiation, making it widely regarded as one of the safest imaging techniques available.
Noninvasive Surgery Devices
Open surgery carries the risk of infection and bleeding. On the other hand, noninvasive surgery, which involves minimal surgical incisions for probe insertion, offers several advantages. Patients tend to recover faster and experience fewer complications with noninvasive procedures.
