So, you power on your OEC 9800 or 9900 C-arm and step away for a moment to let it run the boot-up process. When you return, the display on your doghouse (the control housing on top of your central column) has frozen and reads "Precharge Voltage Error". What happened? And what can you do to resolve the error and get your C-arm up and running for the day's exams?

Don't worry! There's a simple explanation for your problem as well as a simple, do-it-yourself solution that clears most Precharge Voltage Errors.

If you're considering bringing a C-arm into your facility, but an outright purchase seems a little (or a lot) out of reach at the moment, learning more about available financing options might be just what you need to help you in the decision-making process.

While there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all purchase plan, there are a number of good reasons to get your C-arm through a lease. Your reasons are your own, but let us give you some ballpark numbers to help you know what you can expect to pay each month on a C-arm lease.

An interim C-arm rental can make good sense in a lot of different scenarios. Most often, when people talk to us about a rental, one of the following is true:

You need to test your market to know if buying a C-arm will be a good investment for you.

Your current C-arm is down for repair and you don't expect it back up anytime soon.

You are running a training/continuing education course and need C-arms to demonstrate procedures. 

You are working to pare down a backlog of patients.

You have money in the operating budget, but not so much in the capital budget.

Whatever the reason, consider the following costs to make your C-arm rental work for you.

Recently, a facility whose C-arm project I was managing requested “additional training”. As the conversation continued, it became clear that they weren't certain of what kind of training they really wanted. This was not the first time I've had this conversation, and I doubt it will be the last. 

If you're reading this article, you are probably wondering about the training your team needs right now. Our suggestion: start by asking yourself and your team a few questions about your goals. The following are a few we've found helpful.
