C-arms are the imaging workhorses for many facilities. They often get the most use because of their portability and versatility. These old C-arms do have their limitations, mostly in image storage and image transfer capabilities from c-arm to network. This article will help you navigate these issues with a few simple how-to measures to follow.
Many of our customers who are just starting out have very limited budget. Their only option is to purchase a used c-arm which does not have DICOM send. However, they still can send their images into PACS or network using a Medicap Digital Device which is connected to your used c-arm. This product is extremely convenient letting you store images onto a flash drive, then uploading it to your network.
Some C-arm models (ex. OEC Elite 9900 C-arm) have DICOM capabilities built into them. For those that don’t, a DICOM box can convert images to a universal, transferable format and send them to a site’s network for storage and review.
