Many is the time our service, parts, or engineering departments have been asked, “How can I know how much life is left in my OEC C-arm tube?” Considering the cost of a C-arm tube, this is a perfectly reasonable inquiry to make. Unfortunately, to put the common answer succinctly, you can’t know.

In answering thusly, we’ve probably managed to raise a couple of other questions.  We don’t want to leave you hanging, so we’ll qualify our answer and tell you what’s to be done in light of it.

C-Arm Reimbursement.jpg

The famous saying says, “You have to spend money to make money.” That may be true in the game of Monopoly, the actual real estate market, or just about any industry you can think of, but it is not necessarily the case with C-arms. You can spend anywhere from $10,000 (as-is, where-is) to $400,000 (fully-digital, just out of the factory) on your initial equipment purchase, but spending more money won’t garner you bigger reimbursements. 

Of course, that’s not to say that the least expensive C-arm is always the best choice. Depending on your approach to C-arm use, your initial cost may or may not make a difference in your return on investment.
