6800 HP vs 6800 CPIf you work with shoulders, knees, hands, or feet you already know that a mini c-arm is a great option for meeting the imaging needs of your specialty. You also already know that the OEC 6800 MiniView is a great option among mini c-arms.

If you didn't know that, I suppose we've just told you...

But, now that you know, there's another layer of knowledge to uncover: the difference between the 6800 CP and the 6800 HP.

Before we begin, let's define these acronyms:

CP- Clinical Package

HP- Hospital Package


These two flavors of mini c-arm have a lot in common, but the HP type adds some extra features.


Features of Both MiniView CP and HP: 

  • 4/6 inch dual-mode image intensifier
  • Footswitch
  • 200 image storage
  • Dual touchscreen monitors
  • Last image hold
  • 1K x 1K 16-bit image processing
  • Save and auto-save
  • Swap and auto-swap
  • Multi-purpose image directory
  • Removable PC diskette image transfer and archive
  • Noise filter with on-screen indicator
  • MANRS: real-time motion artifact and noise reduction system
  • Automatic digital brightness and contrast control
  • X-ray dose summary
  • Customizable functions

Additional features of the MiniView HP:

  • 400 image storage
  • Zoom and roam function
  • Image annotation
  • Real-time variable edge enhancement
  • Relative measurement software


If you're considering purchasing the OEC 6800 MiniView, it's clear that the HP has more capabilities than the CP. However, there's no reason to spend more on features you'll never use. Ultimately, the specifics of your procedures and patient load will determine which version of the OEC 6800 MiniView is better for your facility.
