The first time people contact us to rent mobile imaging equipment, questions often come up about the condition and the quality of the trailers. This stands to reason, as imaging trailers can sometimes see long trips between facilities and the same wear and tear that other vehicles encounter on the road. Worse- a facility may have even had a bad experience with a previous provider.

C-arm rental-rates-2018.jpg

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.
