tips-to-sell-your-c-arm

Like so many other things, selling a used C-arm requires a little leg work to get the best value. After all, you wouldn’t expect to get top dollar for your coin collection if it was missing a Susan B. Anthony dollar, would you? Nor would you, as a buyer, shell out for an 2009 Pontiac without seeing some service records or, at least, an oil change sticker from some time after the Obama administration.

Things are much the same when one ventures into the used medical imaging equipment market. Retaining your accessories and documentation and properly maintaining your unit as it waits to find its new home can go a long way toward helping you make your C-arm sale and get the most money out of it.

mri-magnet-boil-off-rates

Anyone considering the purchase of an MRI machine should know that a healthy cooling system is essential to the maintenance and performance of their magnet. This means, among other things, keeping an eye on your helium level and getting refills at the proper time. Unfortunately, because there are so many different types of magnets in use today, and each of them experiences helium loss (AKA, boil-off) at a different rate, there is no one-size-fits-all prescription for when this needs to happen.

To help those of you comparing magnets and those of you looking to keep your existing magnet healthy, we've compiled helium boil-off rates for the top six magnets on the secondary market. These are the magnet types we see most often as a provider of used/refurbished MRI machines. Also included are a few pointers on refill rates and recommendations.
