Fuji Persona CS vs. OEC 9900: C-Arm Power Comparison

The Fuji Persona CS is an eye-catching newcomer to the C-arm market; and rightfully so. It boasts a space-saving footprint, a flat-panel digital detector, 30 fps fluoroscopy, and a host of other attractive features. But when C-arm buyers consult the specifications, it's common for the Persona's 5kW generator to raise some questions:
