So, you’re looking to step up your C-Arm imaging capabilities without feeding your budget (not to mention all your space) to the “C” monster. The spine, back, and pain physicians are always hogging the full-size C-arm and you're just looking to heal a hand or a foot. Logically, the first option that comes to mind is the mini-C. The compact design and tighter mag modes of a mini-C are a perfect fit for the work, but just how much will you be spending to bring one into your facility?

Below we'll break down how much you're likely to pay for used mini C-arm equipment as well as the services that go along with it (refurbishment, delivery, warranty, etc.).

OEC Image Intensifier Power Supplies: Lifespan and Cost Info

OEC-II-Power-Supply

The image intensifier (II) is a core part of most OEC C-arms (with the exception of only the newest FPD model). If you are an OEC user, then you're familiar with how essential the II is. Just as important as the II is to the overall C-arm, is the II's power supply to it's function. The II power supply provides the II with the power it needs to amplify the light signal produced by the X-ray conversion process. It also modulates the intensity of this power to balance the sizing, focus, and edge focus of each of the II’s magnification modes. 

It's a common assumption that when you purchase an II it comes with a power supply. This is not true- the II power supply is its own FRU (field replacement unit) part and needs to be purchased separately. Because this part is so important to the II, we’ve provided some stats to help you know what to expect when replacing your OEC image intensifier power supply.

9900-elite-vs-oec-elite

In early 2016, GE released their newest line of OEC C-arms and unveiled their CFD system, the OEC Elite. Along with the new flat-panel system, OEC released an upgraded version of their tried-and-true II-based systems. 

The value of the CFD is well known, so the question then becomes, where does the new II-based OEC Elite system fit in? How does it compare to the previous II-based OEC 9900 Elite system that has been the standard in the industry? Below is a quick comparison of the two systems and where they find their place.
