So you're ready to take the digital cath lab plunge, eh? Excellent! And as you began making this decision, we're willing to bet the first (or maybe second) question to cross your mind was: "How much does digital cath lab equipment cost?"
Just in case we were right about that (and even if we weren't), our cath lab experts have compiled current average pricing for six of the most popular digital cath lab models on the secondary market.
Cath Lab Price Cost Guide 
The Price Range:
Presently, the six most popular refurbished models occupy a price range between $300,000- $600,000 installed, with a 1-year parts and labor warranty. These models include:
• Philips FD10
• Philips FD20
• GE Innova 2000
• GE Innova 2100
• GE Innova 3100
• GE Innova 4100
The two main reasons for the price variations are secondary market supply and detector size. In the Philips FD series, the detectors are 10 and 20 inches, respectively. The GE Innova series detectors are measured in centimeters and come in at 20cm, 30cm, and 40cm.
These differences in detector size are related primarily to the types of studies a system will be used for. Smaller detectors like the FD10 and the Innova 2100 are optimal for cardiac procedures. If you plan to perform run-offs, ablation techniques, or tumor/vein embolizations, a large detector like the Innova 4100 is preferrable.
Both the Philips FD20 and the GE Innova 3100 are considered "swing labs"- that is, digital cath lab equipment that is suitable for both cardiac work and a variety of vascular and neurological applications.
