A C-Arm is a medical imaging unit which is based on the form of x-ray technology. It can be used flexibly in multiple operating rooms or within clinics. The name C-Arm was derived from the C-shaped arm which is used to connect the x-ray source and the x-ray detector to each other. The arm consists of a generator known as the x-ray source and an image intensifier.
The device is often used in:
- Vascular Surgery.
C-arm x-ray systems are used for multiple diagnostic imaging and minimum invasive surgical procedures. The device offers high-resolution x-ray images in real time which would allow a surgeon to monitor progress during surgery.
In the operating room, utilization of these devices helps in visualizing internal difficulties. In the c-arm x-ray systems market, there are also mini c-arms available. Some systems offer technology of reduced radiation delivered to patients.
The original c-arm which instigated the legend of OEC was the GE OEC 9000 C Arm launched in the year 1991. This device remains a multiple application imaging x-ray system which is mobile and flexible enough to use in general orthopedic surgery, trauma, and pain management.
While providing digital image processing, this device is also capable of noise reduction, gamma correction, dynamic real-time viewing, and motion artifact reduction. The device can also perform fluorography and fluoroscopy.
Fortunately, further upgrades are available which enable the system to perform more detailed forms of medical imaging procedures.
Purchasing new C-Arm systems, however, can be very expensive, for this reason, used and refurbished systems have started proliferating in the industry. Used and refurbished medical imaging equipment provides buyers with the advantage of only having to pay a fraction of the cost of what a brand new device would be.
However, before purchasing refurbished equipment, it is vital to seek them from a reliable, efficient, and well-reputed firm.
Amber Diagnostics is an organization that is known for providing the best used and refurbished medical imaging equipment in the market. While offering optimal quality products, Amber Diagnostics also seeks to provide the best services for client satisfaction and patient satisfaction.
