When we begin conversations with people setting up for catheterization or angiography work, nine times out of ten, the first question they ask is: "How much does digital cath lab equipment cost?"
It's a big question, with some big variables at play but, to help those of you on the market begin to build some budget expectations, 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 $150,000- $375,000 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 main reasons for price variations are: secondary market supply and digital 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.
