Statement of Need for: Siemens Detector Imaging
The Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Wilkes-Barre, Imaging has determined the need to purchase Siemens Detector for performing routine x-rays due to a dedicated COVID-19 treatment room.
The current Siemens MAX WI-D Detector Model # 11105032 is damaged, and a replacement is necessary to ensure continuity of Veteran medical care. Siemens room 3 has been dedicated as the COVID-19 treatment room as it provides the one table that will lower to the ground level which makes it easier for the Veteran to get on the x-ray table for procedures. This will also allow bariatric and wheelchair patients easier access for fluoroscopic procedures and routine x-rays. Based on the flexibility of the table, this room has been dedicated as the COVID treatment room to ensure we are meeting the needs of a larger population. We need the Siemens Detector to be fully operational and provide ongoing treatment to our Veterans during this pandemic.
