The very first step is to decide what type of equipment your practice will need and select a room that is appropriate for the x-ray equipment. Site planning requirements may vary by state, so please contact a sales representative at email@example.com for specific details. You may contact a Maven Imaging representative directly at 800-949-8015.
The x-ray room can be located anywhere within your site. Ideally, the x-ray room would be located on an outside corner that has two outside walls. This will reduce the costs of the lead lining. It is preferable that you have one door and no windows. If there are windows, location and dimensions will be critical for the placement of tube and/or bucky stands. Windows will need shades to reduce light to enable you to see the collimator light field for patient positioning.
Room size can vary; it depends on the type of chiropractic practice. Below are some basic room dimensions to minimize the size of the room required and maximize the efficiency in your x-ray department.
