Types of C-Arms
C-arm machines are used for a range of diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive surgical procedures. They are flexible, and can be used in a variety of situations.
C-Arms come in different sizes including Mini C-Arms, Compact C-Arms, Full-Size C-Arms. Keep in mind there are also modifications for C-arms such as digital retrofit devices for analog C-arms.
Mini-C-Arm machines are smaller systems used sports medicine, orthopedic and podiatric imaging. They are ideal for scanning extremities such as hands, feet, ankles, knees, elbows, and shoulders.
These units can be especially helpful during external reduction and fixation of fractures since the bone alignment can also be visualized in a non-invasive manner via real time.
Compact C-Arm machines are larger than a Mini C-Arm, but not as big as a Full-size C-Arm . They can come in either one-piece or two-piece systems, with the main benefit being its mobility. If you need something bigger than a Mini C-Arm, but don’t have the room or need for a Full-Size C-Arm – the Compact C-Arm is a great compromise.
Full-Size C-Arm machines are the most sought after model because they allow you to perform just about any type of procedure. These C-Arm machines are used for swallow tests, spine and torso studies, cardiology, pain management and surgery. The open space in the regular full size C-arm is 26 inches, making it large enough to fit a table and patient between the image intensifier and the tube. They can come with a 6/9″ Image Intensifier, and even a 12″ image intensifier, which can be especially useful for cardiology.
