Most of the OEC C-arm owners we talk to are satisfied with the overall performance of their equipment. Image quality, software options, ease of service - people seem pretty happy about all of these aspects. The one thing we hear people wishing they could change about their OEC C-arms is the CRT monitors.
We've written previously about kicking those CRTs to the curb and upgrading with the OEC 9800, but we want to let you know that the 9800 is not the only OEC model that can receive a flatscreen monitor upgrade.
Which systems are eligible?
The answer to this question depends on which upgrade provider we're referring to. At present, OEC only provides flatscreen upgrades for the 9800. There are third-party upgrades available for not only the 9800 but also the 9600 and the 6800 mini C-arm.
What are the benefits?
Higher image viewing quality- While a monitor upgrade doesn't alter the imaging chain of your C-arm, it does provide you with a higher-quality format for reviewing them on your system's workstation.
No image burn-in- Unlike their CRT predecessors, LCD monitors do not suffer from image burn-in, the lingering impression of pixels left on monitor glass for too long.
Options available- With the 9800 and 6800, monitor upgrades can also be paired with upgrades like USB accessible image storage.
New life for your unit- With a display and interface response that more closely resembles newer technology, you can enjoy some of the benefits of next-gen systems without needing to purchase a full replacement.
If you have an OEC 9800, 9600, or 6800, and you love everything about it except the CRTs, there is a more affordable way than replacement to reap all the benefits of a flatscreen display. Our team is ready to help you select your upgrade options and get them installed on your C-arm so you can take the next step in improving your C-arm experience.
