As you serve patients with your OEC C-arm day after day, the occasional breakdown is inevitable. In these situations, one of the best things you can do to minimize your downtime is have a reliable parts supplier that you can reach out to as your first call. Of course, the biggest thing a first-call parts supplier needs to earn your call is consistent stock of the parts you're likely to need for your C-arm.

Below you'll find a list of OEC C-arm parts that Block Imaging has in inventory regularly (some almost constantly). Each of these parts is a solution to a major problem that can put your C-arm down and halt your ability to perform scans. To make the list a little more convenient, we've included each part's number and current average price.
