It wasn't long ago that OEC 9900 C-arms were still rare on the secondary market. As the model has matured, however, the availability of pre-owned 9900s has increased significantly. This increase has prompted a shift in cost that moves the 9900 into a pricing bracket accessible to a much wider range of facilities. If you've considered the OEC 9900 in the past and found it to be outside your budget, you should know the landscape has changed.

We consulted one of our resident C-arm experts, Gary Dodge about what savings buyers can expect to find when they come across OEC 9900s on the refurbished market. He replied with this:

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.

People ask our team daily, “How much does a CT scanner cost?” It's a broad question, as there are many factors at play; a little like asking how much a home costs. A pop-up camper isn’t going to cost you much (you may even be able to pull one off my neighbor’s front lawn for free) but that Tudor mansion is going to put a far larger dent in your pocketbook.

We want to help you get some clarity and get the CT scanner you need for the right price. To that end, consider the four questions below to start narrowing the options down by need and by preference. Then, stick around for the video clip where we'll break down CT scanner prices in 2020 into three simple tiers.
