Maintaining the efficiency and functionality of MRI and CT machines in the healthcare sector is crucial. When a part of these complex devices needs to be replaced, precision is essential. Ordering the right spare part is a crucial process that requires careful attention. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to ensure you get the right spare part for your MRI or CT machine.

1. determine the correct part number:

The first step in ensuring the correct replacement part is to identify the physical part number on the component that needs to be replaced. Many parts, especially in MRI and CT machines, have an alphanumeric part number engraved into or attached to the component with a sticker. This part number is your primary reference point when searching for a replacement.

2. OEM documentation:

If the physical part number is not immediately visible or accessible, your next resource is the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) documentation. This documentation usually contains detailed information about the components of the machine, including part numbers. Search for schematics, service manuals or parts lists provided by the OEM. These documents often show exploded views of the machine and clearly label the parts with their respective part numbers.

3. alternative part numbers:

Sometimes the original part number may be obsolete and the OEM documentation may offer alternative or revised part numbers for the same component. These alternative part numbers are important to consider when looking for the right spare part.

4. contact Slight Edge:

If you are having difficulty finding the part number, need alternative part numbers or require expert assistance, contact Slight Edge. Our team of specialists is very familiar with the components of MRI and CT machines and can help you find the right part.

5. provide a photo of the part:

If you have any doubts about the identity of the part, a photo can be an invaluable resource. Take a clear, detailed picture of the part that needs to be replaced and share it with Slight Edge. Our experts can use the photo to visually confirm the part and ensure you receive the correct replacement.

6. check the compatibility again:

Before finalizing your order, check that the spare part is compatible with your specific MRI or CT machine model. Different machine models may use variations of a component, so it is important to ensure compatibility.

7. place your order:

Once you have confirmed the part number or received instructions from Slight Edge, you can proceed with your order. Make sure you provide all the necessary information, including the part number, alternative part numbers, pictures and any relevant details about your machine model.


In summary, ordering the right spare part for your MRI or CT machine is a meticulous process that requires attention to detail and expertise. While identifying the part number and consulting OEM documentation are essential steps, don’t hesitate to seek assistance from Slight Edge if needed.
