Top-of-the-Line at a Cheaper Cost: Purchasing a Pre-Owned TrueBeam® Linear Accelerator
When considering a machine for your facility, you often want the top-of-the-line medical equipment that can provide your patients with the best therapy treatment. The most comprehensive linear accelerator available, the TrueBeam, can be quite an exorbitant cost that can exceed your estimated budget. However, since its introduction in 2010, purchasing a refurbished Linac unit can be a feasible choice for the following reasons.
- New technologies are being developed and released at a fast pace, such as: Proton therapy machines, MR-Linacs, PET/CT Linacs, and “bunker-less” SRS machines. Each new machine has its own merits, but they all ultimately have one setback— high cost. Over the next few years, physicians, business owners, and the like will be able to determine which new product will become the next generation mainstream machine. As for now, the traditional linear accelerator continues to dominate the market.
- Purchasing a pre-owned TrueBeam Linear Accelerator can place your cancer center at an advantage vs. your competition. Your medical equipment will be equally or even potentially better than theirs. You not only get a state-of-the-art machine, but also receive all the qualities of being one of the best linear accelerator currently available on the primary and secondary markets. By buying a pre-owned machine, you pay far less for your equipment and therefore pay lower operational costs
- Lower operational costs often mean more money to spend. With the money you saved from purchasing refurbished, you can allot that money to drive referrals.
