Given the mobile nature of a C-arm, it's bound to happen at least once in a system's life: the skin spacer gets left behind somewhere and is never seen again. Or maybe it takes a fall and cracks. Or maybe the seal wears out and the spacer won't stay in place. Whatever the case, this simple acrylic accessory isn't invincible and replacements are a common request fielded by our Parts Team.

Below you'll find the vital details on ordering your replacement, including manufacturer part number and current average pricing. If using the skin spacer is a rarity at your facility, we'll also let you know why it's still important that you have one.

OEC C-Arm Parts.jpg

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, current average list price, and a sign or two that you may need to replace the more common ones in the near future.
