Cassette and Relocatable Buildings

Diagnostic Imaging Suite Buildings

MRI Design and Construction Cost Savings.

Time is money in any construction project.  Material costs are considered “fixed” costs based upon a project design.  Labor hours to complete a project are variable costs often viewed through a contractor’s “project contingency” and “change order” lens.

Is there an alternative to “site-built” MRI design and construction?  Is there a lower cost construction approach that can deliver a higher quality, Institutional Type II-A building?  Is there a proven imaging suite environment, MRI vendor tested and certified, that meets its equipment installation and operational requirements?  Is there an MRI design and construction program that offers over-all project speed and simplicity at a “fixed price” without any contingencies? The answer is yes.

The PDC Cassette® and PDC Entrée® were developed to overcome these challenges. The pre-engineered, performance tested, GE certified Cassette and Entrée are fully manufactured and fully movable “fixed site” quality buildings delivered on site within 12 weeks, installed in 2 days and patient “imaging ready” in 3 weeks.

Temporary or Permanent Imaging Suites

PDC Cassette and Entrée are USA trademarked, Institutional Type II-A, Seismic “E”, engineering enhanced buildings.  They attach to an existing facility or function as a “free standing”, permanent or temporary imaging clinic.  The PDC “LEAN” manufacturing process in its centralized, environmentally controlled manufacturing facility offers a quality standard and testing capability that allows PDC to ship a fully finished, state inspected and state certified building to the customer.

    As a vertically integrated manufacturer of MRI compliant LED lighting systems, Radio Frequency shielding products and cabinetry, these buildings deliver and quality and cost savings that are unique to “site built” projects and typical modular building structures.

    Compared to fixed-site design and construction projects, which can take nine to 12 months or longer for a similar sized PDC building, you’ll be ready to image approximately four months after signing a purchase order. This process is designed to have you patient-ready in the shortest timeframe possible:

    • Week 1 – Planning, design consultation and meetings. Purchase order signed
    • Week 2-11 – Cassette or Entrée manufacturing by PDC. Foundation planning / construction by local architect / contractor or PDC consultants
    • Week 12 – Cassette or Entrée delivery
    • Week 12 + Day 1 – Installation (1 day)
    • Week 13-15 – MRI system start-up and testing by field service engineer
    • Week 16 – Ready for patients

    The interior and exterior finishes of the Cassette and Entrée buildings can be custom designed to complement or match an existing structure.   A wide variety of building options are available to ensure your suite is compliant with all state building codes, health department regulations and both technician and patient conveniences.

    Aside from the capabilities of your MRI system and provider care, little more is of greater impact on patient care, image quality and productivity than the MRI environment. Improving patient comfort can lead to less movement during the scan, fewer retakes, higher department productivity and ultimately, higher quality images for greater diagnostic confidence.
