Keeping your equipment clean is fundamental to any practice, but how clean is your equipment on the inside? Our engineers can run full diagnostics circuit boards to ensure everything is working and calibrated fully. Much like a computer, X-ray and processing equipment contain fans that help keep the internal components cool. Unfortunately, fans don’t fair very well against loose dust that can often become trapped which can easily block a fan and prevent it from functioning correctly. Circuit boards are undoubtedly very pricey, a quick clean can help prevent this easily avoidable expense.

An annual digital processor or X-ray service by PLH Medical allows our engineers to update your equipment’s software. This can help prevent bugs in the system or provide necessary upgrades recommended by manufacturers.
