OEC_C-arms_Onboard_DICOMThere are only so many hours in the day, and only so much storage space on a C-arm's onboard computer. Because of this, when you're choosing a C-arm, it's important to consider where you'll store your images and how you'll get them there.

That's where DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) comes in. DICOM is the standard storage, transfer, and viewing format for diagnostic images and, whether your C-arm uses its own computer or a conversion accessory to convert images into DICOM, you're probably going to need it.

The video below gives the run-down on which OEC C-arms come with DICOM built-in and which ones you'll need to buy a conversion accessory for.
