C-Arm_Rental_2016.jpgAn interim C-Arm rental can make good sense in a lot of different scenarios. Most often, when people talk to us about a rental, one of the following is true:

     • You need to test your market to know if buying a C-Arm will be a good investment for you.  

     • You find the C-Arm you own down for repair and you do not expect it to be up and running anytime soon.

     • You are running a training/continuing education course and need C-arms to demonstrate procedures. 

     • You are working to pare down a backlog of patients.

     • You have money in the operating budget, but not so much in the capital budget.

Whatever the reason, consider the following costs to make your c-arm rental work for you.
