X-Ray Project Management

X-ray project management is a valuable service provided by Maven Imaging, and is included in the cost. Our efficient project management process involves strategic planning, innovative design, careful construction, and the FFE phase (fixtures, furniture, and equipment). 

The purchase of digital x-ray equipment also requires the appropriate power source, meeting lead requirements, and creating a protected operator space.

Defining Your Space

The first step in the planning phase of your x-ray room is understanding the layout. Once the x-ray system is chosen, we’ll take room measurements and put those specs into an equipment room drawing. We’ll lay out all possible locations for the machine, and positions best suited for the particular type of system.


Minimizing Lead

One of our main concerns is minimizing the amount of potential lead needed when building out the x-ray room. For example, our team will try to line up the equipment to shoot toward an exterior wall. In this case, we know there is nothing on the other side. Otherwise, the walls will need to be lead-lined.

Room Measurements

Another critical task that Maven Imaging takes care of is making all important measurements needed for the equipment and build-out. Our professionals must ensure there is 72 and 40 Sid. This is simply the measurement between where the tube is and where the wall stand is located. This is to ensure you get the right type of technique needed for each individual x-ray procedure.

We also need to make sure the operator of the x-ray equipment remains safe at all times and has adequate space to do their job. No matter if the installation is in an urgent care setting or podiatrist’s office, there are different elements to the system you must plan for accordingly. 

Where is the tube stand to be located? Is there a table as well as a wall stand? These are all equipment details we will help you work out based on industry, business size, and other specific needs. 

Ultimately, within the room somewhere, the operator needs a space to perform the imaging. For safety reasons, they must be positioned behind a lead barrier, with a window where they are able to view the patient. This setup is especially important since the staff is exposing themselves multiple times, on a daily basis. 

From a workflow standpoint, we also want to make sure the operator can easily move back and forth between the wall, to ensure they take accurate x-rays. There should also be enough room built-in to accommodate patient needs like wheelchairs and other medical equipment. 



The next step in x-ray project management is gathering data. We need to hire other professionals to assess the space and report on their findings. 
Physicist Report
From a spatial standpoint, everything is laid out in the equipment room drawing. Once this blueprint is completed, it is submitted to a physicist to assess the lead requirements. These professionals are provided with information like wall composition, general usage, and volume of patients to further include these data points in their research. 

The volume of usage will greatly contribute to the amount of lead and thickness built into the room. The final physicist report will include the recommended amount of lead for the particular space, and the necessary documentation needed to move the process forward. 

We can then use this information to calculate the appropriate amount of lead required for the custom installation. 
Delivery Window
A physicist report is typically delivered within 10-14 business days. However, we also offer a 5-day turnaround (which most customers choose), or if the need is urgent, we can deliver them as fast as 2 business days. These levels of urgency are all based on different prices, with the higher cost having the fastest turnaround time.
