So, you’re looking to step up your C-Arm imaging capabilities without feeding your budget (not to mention all your space) to the “C” monster. The spine, back, and pain physicians are always hogging the full-size C-arm and you're just looking to heal a hand or a foot. Logically, the first option that comes to mind is the mini-C.
