The ALTA750 replacement tube

Richardson unveils replacement tube for Toshiba CT systems

by Gus Iversen , Editor in Chief
Richardson Healthcare has just introduced a new replacement CT tube compatible with a range of Toshiba (Canon Medical Systems) CT scanners.

The ALTA750 is the first new CT replacement tube manufactured by parent company Richardson Electronics, and is designed as a replacement for the CXB-750D/4A tube, (also known as the Varex Imaging MCS-7078).

Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.

The new tubes, which will come packaged with a Heat Exchanger and HV Cable Kit, will include a prorated 12-month (or 200,000 rotations) limited warranty.

"We expect to see a good response to the product launch, as many customers have told us they would like to be able to buy a new tube with a new tube warranty at a reasonable price," Pat Fitzgerald, executive vice president and general manager of Richardson Healthcare, told HCB News.

For a limited time, the company is also offering a 90-day satisfaction guarantee, during which customers can return the tubes for a full refund of the purchase price.

Richardson is now one of a few global companies with the design and manufacturing capabilities necessary to produce CT tubes.

"We want to enable alternative service by providing hospitals and third-party service providers with options for diagnostic imaging replacement parts and CT service training," said Fitzgerald. "This includes investments in high-value components like CT replacement tubes. The ALTA750 is the first new CT tube Richardson Electronics has introduced, but we intend to offer additional replacement tubes to serve our customers' needs in the future."

Prior to bringing the new tube to market, Richardson conducted extensive quality testing on OEM scanners in clinical sites. In addition, physicist Dr. Robert Dixon performed an independent evaluation of the tube and produced a white paper indicating full compatibility and radiation dose equivalence for the ALTA750 replacement tubes in comparison to the original OEM component.
