This is being amended to Two (2) year period. Bidders can cross out the “Three (3)”
in their response.
3. On Page 37 - it states “ The System should have the capability of
performing dual
energy studies using the wall stand/flat panel detector combination. This specification
is changed to the following :
The system must have the ability to capture a “low –energy” image and a “high
energy”
image during a single examination. (Dual Energy Chest Imaging) or bone
suppression technology to transform conventional chest x-ray images into an enhanced
soft tissue image without bone overlay”
4. On page 38 - the
specification stating “ The Table must have full length foot switches
along the table base to control the table top up/down movement to allow the raising
and lowering of the table. “ For clarification the expectation for
this require id that
the foot switches cable will be able be minimum the full length of the table.
5. On Page 38 - the specification stating “ The table height should be at least adjustable
from 50cm (20 Inches) to 90cm
(36inches). The words “ at least “ are to be
excluded. LGH requires a system that has low height position to make it as easy as
possible for the elderly population to be positioned on the table but the maximum
height
position can be in the range of about 82cm to 90cm.
6. On Page 38 – The specification stating “The system must be equipped with Vertical
Auto tracking table (the table is the master and floor stand follows the movement).
The
word must is amended to “should”.

11. On page 41 – The specification
stating “The system must have a Vertical Autotracking
Wall Stand (Wall Stand is the master and the floor stand follows the vertical
movement). The word must is amended to “should”.
12. On page 43 – the specification which
states “The system must have a transverse tube
travel 30 cm , with the detent at table center. “The word Must is changed to “should”.
LGH will consider some difference in travel range if it is determined that there will
be
no operational issues in accepting the proposed system.
13. On page 43- the specification stating: “The system must have focal spot –to-floor
distance which is variable from 40cm to 200cm”. The word “must “is changed
to
“should” LGH will accept a maximum tube height which is as low as 185 cm.
14. On page 43 – the specification stating “The system must have an X-ray tube rotation =
150 degrees . The word “must is being changed “Should”.
LGH will accept between
120 degrees to 150 degree rotation.
15. On page 43 – The specification stating “ The system must have a Tube stand column
rotation + - 180 degrees ( detents at +90 , 0 , -90). The word “must” is
being
changed to “Should” . The “+ -“ is being deleted so the rotation is reads as only 180
degrees.
16. On page 43 – The specification stating “ The system must be equipped with Manual
