Mobile Imaging Systems are an essential part of everyday hospital life, due to their ability to move around the patient. The optimum angle for a high-quality image is achieved, while keeping the patient comfortable.
Mobile C-Arm systems are mobile imaging devices based on X-ray technology and since the introduction of the first C-arm in 1955, the technology has advanced rapidly.
Specialists in fields such as surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery and cardiology use C-arms for intraoperative imaging. The devices provide high-resolution X-ray images in real time, which allows the physician to monitor progress at any point during the operation. Corrections can be made immediately, consequently the treatment results are better and patients recover more quickly.
Hospitals benefit from cost savings through fewer follow-up operations and from minimized installation efforts.
How Does a Mobile C-Arm Work?
A mobile C-arm comprises a generator (X-ray source) and an image intensifier or flat-panel detector. The C-shaped connecting element allows movement horizontally, vertically and around the swivel axes. X-ray images of the patient can be produced from almost any angle.
The generator emits X-rays that penetrate the patient’s body. The image intensifier or detector converts the X-rays into a visible image displayed on the C-arm monitor. The doctor can identify and check anatomical details on the image, and positions of implants and instruments are changed at any time.
