Chiropractic X-Ray Room: Costs, Examples, and Checklists to Purchasing

by Chad Hutchison on June 7, 2013 in Chiropractic X-Ray

X-Ray imaging’s ease of use, simple set up and low cost mean that any health care provider can immediately see positive results from their investment. From small private practice Chiropractors to large chain-style Chiropractic franchises, digital X-rays have improved efficiency and cut costs by taking advantage of the wide variety of cutting edge options available on the market. The trick is knowing which X-Ray system is right for you. Taking the time to determine your goals, requirements and budget will ensure that you choose the right equipment for your needs.

Cost

Purchasing your X-Ray room equipment in a complete package is always the best bet to keep costs low. If you need to purchase a CR, PACS server, Viewing workstations, CD Burners, Film Scanners or anything else along with your X-Ray system, please notify your sales representative to work on a special package price.

The X-Ray systems come bundled from the manufactures into the most typically used systems. These systems range from $15,000 for the most basic chiropractic style package up to 60,000+ depending on the options, generator type selected, and specific needs of your practice.
