OEC 9600 Hardware and Software Options

Featured Image

Along with it's successor, the 9800, the OEC 9600 is one of the C-arm systems I sell most often. That being said, I answer the following question a lot:

"What are the possible hardware and software configurations for an OEC 9600?" 

I'll give you the answer below, with the most important options that you'll choose from as you shop OEC C-arms:

OEC 9600 Hardware Options

Standard 9"- OEC's standard-sized C-arm with a 9" image intensifier (II), used often for cardiac, orthopedics, pain management, general surgery, pacemaker placement, sports medicine

Standard 12"- OEC's standard-sized C-arm with 12" II, used often for vascular, neurovascular, and orthopedics

Super C- Larger C-arm (7" deeper arc than standard 9", 5" deeper than standard 12"), 33° more rotation than standard systems, only available with 9" II

Old vs. New-Style Steering- While the majority of 9600s have "new-style" steering like the 9800, units from the earliest part of the manufacturing run have "old-style" steering. Click here to see the difference
