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.
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.
What is a Mobile C-Arm?
Mobile C-Arms 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.
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.
