Whether you're a veteran, a rookie, or still shopping for the best system, if you plan to use a C-arm, another thing you have to plan for is how you're going to keep it up and running as consistently as possible.

We're here to help you build a realistic budget by revealing some average price ranges you’re likely to find as you shop around for C-arm service coverage (see the table at the end).
