BC Technical can provide multiple upgrade paths to CT, MRI, PET, PET/CT, SPECT, SPECT/CT and Nuclear Medicine systems. These upgrades can range from subsystems all the way up to forklift upgrades. This includes replacement of outdated magnets, coils, consoles, tables, covers, workstations, etc.
Low Dose Upgrades
XR-29 is a law that affects reimbursements on CT scans. It requires that you have certain dose tracking procedures in place to receive reimbursement. Older systems don’t have this feature, so people are forced to purchase a new system from the OEM. Our products are an upgrade that can be added to your existing system for half the cost.
- Reduction of Radiation Dose
- Improvements in Diagnostic Image Quality
- Extends useful life of CT Scanners
- Cost Effective
- Transferable to Future CT Scanner Purchases
XR-29 Dose Check Software – Protect your reimbursements with XR-29 Dose Check. New requirements for scanners without dose alerts will impact your reimbursements. Stay ahead and extend the life of your equipment with BC Technical.
Quickly communicate radiation dose information with patients with printouts available after exam / procedure completion. Re-assure patients that radiation dose is monitored internally while improving your brand. Offering dose printouts immediately following the scan / angio improves the experience, return rate and ROI.
ClearCT Software – BC Technical’s next generation dose reduction software provides even better image quality while still providing the best dose reduction in the industry. Developed by radiologists, for radiologists.

BC Backup+ is a reliable and user- friendly image management system offering secure long-term storage of patient studies. It allows for the transfer of DICOM image data between Nuclear Medicine work stations plus allows for the usage of multiple types of image storage media. BC BACKUP +™ requires no additional software. Everything you need to back up and restore data is self-contained in the BC Backup +™ software. You can easily select the images you wish to restore, whether it’s a single scan, multiple scans, or all patient scans. In addition, BC Backup +™ enables users to create custom groups of images, sort and query based on established filters.
ColdTRAC™ was specifically designed as part of an integrated monitoring service that automatically alerts up to 16 different contacts; including on-site clinical engineering personnel, Radiology Managers along with BC Technical Field Service Engineers. The ability to monitor both environmental and magnet issues allows this system to be a partner in keeping your system operational. Getting the right information to the right people allows fast repairs at the lowest possible cost. With the ColdTRAC™ system, prevention of unnecessary helium loss or magnet damage will no longer be a concern.
COLDTRAC™ CONTINUOUSLY MONITORS AND TRACKS:
- Helium Level
- Coldhead Efficiency
- Compressor Power
- Chiller Temperature
- Magnet Vessel Pressure
- Chiller Water Flow
- Incoming System Power – Voltage, Current, Phase and Frequency
