Many large devices utilized in radiology, such as MRI machines and CT scanners, can take up entire rooms.
However, the mobile C-arm is an imaging device that is small enough to be employed in both operating rooms and inside clinics. C-arms get their name from their crescent moon shape. They are also known as C-arm X-ray machines due to their use of X-rays and radiation detectors to generate images.
C-arms are used primarily used for fluoroscopic imagining in surgical procedures, orthopedics, cardiology, vascular surgery, and traumatology. Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that provides a continuous X-ray image in real-time.
As an intraoperative imaging device, C-arms offer non-invasive, real-time images making it an excellent tool for monitoring patients’ health. Functionally, C-arms have two main components, the generator or X-ray source and the image intensifier or a flat-panel X-ray detector. The detector and the generator are attached to the C-shaped arm, allowing for freedom of movement horizontally, vertically, and around its axes.
The X-rays are shot out of the generator towards the patient. Due to X-rays’ physical qualities, they can penetrate the patient’s body without any pretest preparations. After the X-rays pass through the patient’s body, the detector collects the data, translating it into a visible image that can be displayed on a monitor. The actual radiographic image quality is detailed enough to distinguish between blood vessels, bones, and implants.

We Offer FPD C-Arm Leases to Fit Every Need
Whatever your radiology and x-ray imaging system needs, a C-arm can be a powerful tool for you, as it provides real-time, high-quality images.
If you’re interested in purchasing a mobile c-arm system or mini c-arm but lack the budget to do so, our equipment lease program is a creative and flexible solution.
Additionally, if you’d like to lease other medical imaging equipment, such as a CT scanner, we can help with that too. Fill out our contact form or request a lease estimate to discuss your exact financing needs further.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
