Upgrading C-Arms will help hospital CEO’s and radiologists under pressure to reduce funds without reducing the quality of imaging systems. Radiologists are predicting a spike in fluoroscopic cases in 2022 -2024, and c-arms will need to be in good working order to meet demands. The predicted increase in fluoroscopic procedures could overtax an older c-arm, causing repairs during high volumes.
However, there is no reason to purchase a brand new C-Arm. You can just replace the image intensifier and the x-ray tube generator for a fraction of the cost. The hospital’s biomed team can replace locks, brakes, and cables.
Upgrading C-Arms vs Purchasing a New One:
- A C-Arm upgrade will increase the life of an existing unit. To take quality images, just replace the image intensifier and the x-ray tube.
- Additional training is not required.
- Will not interfere with clinical workflow.
- You can use the existing cables and wires, which eliminates compatibility issues on a new c-arm.
Purchasing an upgraded, used, or refurbished C-Arm does not mean you are purchasing someone else’s problems. In fact, upgrading a C-Arm is a cost effective way to purchase quality equipment without overpaying top dollar for a new C-Arm.
