Mini C-Arm Price Guide 2018.jpg

A mini C-arm is a great way to get an image of a hand or foot without taking up all the space of a full-size C. Beyond that, a refurbished mini C-arm is a great way to save substantially over the cost of a new one. But where exactly does a mini C-arm fall on the cost spectrum? That's the question we'll be answering today.

Used Medical Imaging Equipment Valuations: FMV versus OLV

FMV versus OLV.jpg

While the automotive industry can easily point to Kelley Blue Book for current and depreciated values, putting a firm value figure on diagnostic imaging equipment has no similar benchmark for standardization. Moore's Law (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense, integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years), rapidly developing software, and a seemingly endless scope of imaging modalities and manufacturers are just a few of the factors keeping the "Blue Book" level of relative ease and consistency out of reach.

Of course, everyone who asks, "What is my imaging system worth?" would love to have an immediate answer with as many zeros as possible. The aforementioned factors, however, combined with the circumstances of your decision to sell, mean the proper response to this question requires that even more questions be asked. We'll breakdown the key questions below to help you learn what to expect as you bring your used diagnostic imaging equipment to market.

The Siemens Arcadis C-arm series is comprised of models known for powerful generators, hardily engineered parts, and isocentric 3D imaging. If any of these are compelling features for the specialties you intend to pursue with your C-arm purchase, a Siemens Arcadis product could be an excellent fit for you. What's more- Arcadis series C-arms are more available on the secondary market than they've ever been. This is great news for facilities anticipating a high volume of vascular and/or bariatric studies.

Below, you'll find current average prices for refurbished Siemens Arcadis series C-arms. These prices include delivery and a 1-year service agreement.

Due to the 7% reimbursement cuts to CR-processed scans beginning in 2018 (via The Consolidated Appropriations Act), the next 13 months are "crunch time" in making the decision of whether or not to upgrade from CR to DR.

At this point, the benefits of upgrading to direct-to-digital scanning are widely understood, making the decision, primarily, a budgetary one. To help ease that decision and clarify what exactly is being paid for with that total upgrade price, we've compiled the following points to share what may be needed and included along with a detector purchase for a seamless integration into your facility's equipment stable.

Why GE CT Costs More.jpg

I am regularly asked, "Why does a GE CT scanner cost so much more than the other manufacturers?" We frequently see GE 8-slice CTs going for the same price as a Philips or Siemens 16-slice and this is similarly true for higher-end equipment. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Here are three main reasons we have found GE CT scanners have a higher initial cost.
