While we hope that the peak of this unprecedented outbreak is behind us, it's clear that the presence of COVID-19 will still be felt in our healthcare systems for the foreseeable future.

:: 2 minute read ::

As consumers in the 21st century, we know that the best value doesn't always come from owning something. Sometimes we just need to use it for a little while. Instead of buying DVDs, we subscribe to a service that streams movies. Instead of buying a beach house, we book an Air BnB.

And, when the decision to own really is the best value, we love to "try it before we buy it". Amazon Prime, anyone? How about Carvana, Sephora, or Warby Parker?

The great news for clinics, hospitals, and imaging centers is that you can take advantage of the high quality of Carestream portable X-ray systems without the long-term commitment and cost of purchasing through an equipment rental. Keep reading to see if renting might be a good fit for your needs and budget.

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.
