C-Arm Inspection Guide: How to Demonstrate C-Arm Image Quality
Purchasing and moving C-Arm fluoroscopy equipment can be a daunting process but it doesn't have to be! With decades of collective experience, the Block Imaging project management team knows first hand how significant it is to innovate new and better ways for keeping time between first contact and product pick-up to a minimum.
One of the best ways to accomplish this is for C-Arm sellers to thoroughly demonstrate the condition of the system they intend to sell. Because so much information in the industry is relayed through emails, phone calls, and third-party inspections, it is an enormous time-saver to have exactly what your potential buyer needs to see from you in-hand and ready to forward.
In the C-Arm world, we’ve established a process that’s so simple and easy to follow, anyone can do it! It will save everyone time and money and the processes are laid out step-by-step so there’s no guess work.
Below is an example of one of the best C-Arm image-quality photo inspections we’ve ever received to use as your guide:
Our typical request begins with digital pictures of the monitor. Using a hi-res camera, start with pictures of an empty field set to “auto” in normal, magnification level 1, and magnification level 2:
Next, we like to see a repeat of the above with a phantom or metal object, like a key, in the image field:
| Key normal
|| Key magnification 1
|| Key magnification 2
Completion of the above steps answers the most important questions a buyer will have about your C-Arm system:
- Does the C-Arm work?
- Does the image quality look good?
Pictures like these are going to pique the interest of any C-Arm buyer. There are, of course, other details about your used C-Arm that you will be asked to provide, but these are all easily relayed via the online form found here... "Sell Your Used C-Arm".
"C" ya soon!
