UV-C Disinfection for MRI and CT Infection Prevention and Control

We are proud to share that our UV-C LED Bore Sanitization System (UV-C System) is in use helping protect patients and staff at healthcare sites! Below, hear about Nor-Lea Hospital District’s experience with their UV-C System from Radiology Manager, Alyssa Byrd.

1. How easy is the system to use (set-up, move around & operate)?

“The system is very easy to move around and operate. It can be set up and taken down quickly. The unit is light-weight making moving it from room to room easy.”

2. Where and when is your imaging department using the UV-C System?

“Our UV-C system is used primarily in our CT room after contact isolation patients. The system is used in our MRI unit when we have to perform an isolation patient in there. We perform weekly cleanings on our PET scanner and our nuclear medicine imaging rooms.”

3. How often do you use the UV-C System?

“We use the System after each contact isolation patient, most specifically the Covid-positive patients. We do use it weekly in our other imaging rooms.”

4. Do you feel the UV-C System has benefited your team and patients? If so, how?


“The UV-C System has benefited the team and patients in multiple ways. Our team is able to thoroughly clean our imaging room after scanning Covid-positive patients. Our team wants to make sure we are cleaning the imaging room the very best we can to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid. Our patients can take comfort in knowing that we are disinfecting and cleaning every part of the machine. I know patients are nervous to enter a hospital setting with the Covid pandemic going on. This extra level of disinfection helps ease their mind that we are working to protect them.”


5. Are all staff members able to use the system as part of the cleaning procedure or are only certain staff able to use the system?


“All my staff currently use the system. All my staff are very strong technologists, and I want them to have the tools they need to feel like it is safe to put the next patient in the scanner and that it is clean.”

6. Any other thoughts/comments to share about your experience so far with using the UV-C LED Bore Sanitization System?


“We have been very pleased with our purchase of the UV-C system. It has helped us make sure that we are protecting our patients by providing an exam room that has been cleaned and disinfected.”

Thank you to Alyssa, to her Nor-Lea Imaging Team and to the early adopters of our UV-C technology! We are grateful for your trust in us at PDC, and to be able to play a small role in helping protect patients and staff.
