Image Artifact Troubleshoot

One of the common problems C-arm owners contact us about is artifacts- and we don't mean the cool, Indiana Jones, hidden-in-a-lost-temple kind. Artifacts in your C-arm image- spots, streaks, smudges or any other foreign form showing up in your field of view- can be the result of several underlying issues. Some of these are physical issues with the hardware. Others are digital issues in your C-arm's computer. Whichever the case may be, we want to help you troubleshoot your C-arm image artifacts and learn the next step to take in eliminating them.

2017 CT Scanner Price Cost.jpg

People ask our team every day, “How much does a CT scanner cost?” It's somewhat of a broad question as there are a lot of factors at play- a little like asking how much a car costs. A Ford Pinto isn’t going to cost you much (you may even be able to pull one off my neighbor’s front lawn for free) but that Maserati is going to put a far larger dent in your pocketbook.

We want to help you get some clarity and get the CT scanner you need for the right price. To that end, consider the four questions below to start narrowing the options down by need and by preference. Then, stick around for the video clip where we'll break down current CT scanner costs into four simple tiers.
