Refurbished C-Arms

Siemens Cios Alpha

Siemens Cios AlphaWhether being used to check the anatomical details such as blood vessels, bones and kidney stones or the position of the implants or instruments, Cios Alpha has helped address critical procedures with superior efficiency and accuracy. The device, with its Full View Technology, provides high-resolution, distortion-free images in real time and allows the physician to have greater image coverage even when rotated. With its ergonomic design and intelligent features, Cios Alpha fits into your intraoperative imaging needs seamlessly.

The crème de la crème of mobile C-arms, Cios Alpha delivers exceptional prowess when it comes to image quality. With its 30 cm x 30 cm (12” x 12”), 1.5K x 1.5K flat detector, the device provides a larger field of view with excellent spatial resolution and dynamic range. This helps the doctor differentiate between tissues and the surrounding areas.

Cios Alpha comes with two state-of-the-art medical monitors. These informative displays come with high-resolution, high-contrast TFT panels which offer better color reproduction, better readability and exceptional color stability even at extreme viewing angles. The Enhanced Acquisition System (EASY) reads the full image matrix on the monitors and adjusts the brightness, contrast and dosage accordingly. The monitors are adjustable both horizontally and vertically and can also be rotated in 180° fashion to suit the requirements. The device also has a monitor out function so that it can be wall-mounted for better visibility.

Apart from reproducing true-to-life colors on its monitors, Cios Alpha has special features in its arsenal to reduce the dosage content. Its FD technology along with advanced series-processing algorithms and specifically optimized organ programs help contain the dose and increase the image quality. Also, Cios Alpha’s unique single-touch positioning function eliminates the need for multiple trial and error exposures when returning the detector to a previous projection.

With its 25 kW high power generator, Cios Alpha boasts of a huge power reserve which helps it to deliver razor-sharp, crisp images in all situations. Its sophisticated cooling system comes with an advanced tube design with rotating anode. This intelligent cooling system keeps overheating at bay by efficiently manging the dissipation of heat. The device also has an Energy Storage Unit (ESU) which channelizes the energy according to the requirements. So, in case of higher penetration, the energy storage unit opens its gates for greater flow of power.

Superior ergonomics and flexibility is what defines Cios Alpha in a nutshell. The device allows you to control it right from the monitor cart. The interface on the cart offers a plethora of functions, from positioning the collimator to controlling the brakes. It helps working with the device a breeze and lets you to concentrate on the patient.

Whatever your surgical discipline, Cios Alpha covers the imaging needs of clinical needs including vascular and cardiac surgery, gastroenterology, urology, trauma and spine surgery. Investing in Cios Alpha can give you a high “bang for your buck.” With its effortless operability, one-of-a-kind features and pioneering technical prowess, it is a breath of fresh air and can make a surgeon’s work more efficient and easy.

We Buy OEC 6800 Mini C-Arm

Written by Kevin Noone on . Posted in We Buy GE / OEC C-Arms

oec-6800-c-arm-250w The phrase “bigger is better” is a thing of the past. With today’s advancements in technology it seems like everything is getting thinner, smaller and more affordable. The OEC 6800 is no exception to this rule, and a refurbished OEC 6800 allows your staff access to this technological workhorse at a fraction of its cost. The OEC 6800 mini C-arm is half the size and has many of the same capabilities of a compact system which makes it a win-win situation for any facility.

This mini C-arm has taken the distance between the imagine intensifier and the x-ray tube and has made them much smaller to focus on arthroscopic surgeries and extremities such as hands, feet, wrists, ankles and knees. One big upgrade this model carries over its previous model is that most of this mini c-arms parts are compatible with the OEC 9800, a full sized c-arm that is being used in thousands of offices and hospitals all over the world. This makes it an excellent choice for anyone who is looking to get the technology and features of a more recent model, without going over budget.

Another direct upgrade from previous models is the OEC 6800’s Dual touch screen monitors. This signifies a big step up from the 6600 series. Touch display provide a more user-friendly operating system and are better equipped to properly display images that require higher resolution. That being said, the 6800 also has twice the resolution capability then that of its younger sibling. Better imaging can lead to multiple advantages for a doctor and patient in and out of the operating room.

Money has a big part in most decisions we make, which is why the OEC 6800 was designed to give a potential owners plenty of options to impact cost. Choosing to add bonus features like built in laser aim, on board DICOM or CD drive capability all come at owner expense. Of course this all changes when you’re buying your C-arm new, refurbished or used.  Price margins can differ drastically between a refurbished 6800 and a used 6800. Both the compact size and affordable price of this mini C-arm makes it a perfect choice for offices, hospitals and surgical centers everywhere.

We understand that making the correct decision for your facility is not something to be taken lightly. Let us make sure that the process is as streamlined as possible so that you can move forward with confidence in the equipment, and the peace of mind that comes with proven technology.
