OEC_9800_Stationary_Flat_Screen_Monitors.jpgIt's no secret that the OEC 9800 and its successor, the OEC 9900, have a lot in common when it comes to scanning patients, but when it comes to the user experience of techs and docs, the 9900 has some significant advantages: flat screen LCD monitors with next-gen touchscreen technology.

Now, there are upgrades available that let OEC 9800 users gain those same advantages without going all in on the cost of an OEC 9900. Take a look at the video below to see a brief demonstration of the improvements on an upgraded 9800, including:

  • Greater viewing area
  • Higher resolution and brightness
  • More responsive touchscreens
  • Increased image storage to 10,000 images

If you've been wishing for the imaging and viewing benefits you saw in the video but aren't quite ready to take the big step and invest in a 9900, an upgrade like this could be the perfect middle ground. Flat, touchscreen monitors can be installed on any existing 9800 C-arm for around $12,000.

If you're also interested in the efficiency upgrades you saw, 10,000 image storage capacity and wireless DICOM can be installed for $4,500. On top of what you saw in the video, a wireless footswitch and handswitch can be added for $2,500.

Our C-arm team is ready when you are to start talking through your project. Give us a call or contact us here on the website.
