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.

Top 5 Rarest Used MRI Scanners (and Best Substitute MRI Machines)

Posted by Steve Rentz

Jan 26, 2017 1:50:00 PM

“You can’t always get what you want...” sang the Rolling Stones (quick… what year/what album?) and although they probably weren’t talking about used MRI scanners, it certainly holds true in this industry. At this time, there is no shortage of high-quality, late-model, pre-owned imaging equipment available throughout the world. If you do some proper due diligence you can save a lot of money and, in many cases a lot of time by capitalizing on these opportunities. But you can also WASTE a lot of time trying to find systems that are either not plentiful on the market yet, or in such demand that they move instantly and at inflated prices. 

Here are some examples of rare used MRI machines and some viable alternatives to them if you just don’t have the time (or the money) to keep digging.
