All You Need to Know About Medical C Arms

Jun 13, 2008
A medical C Arm refers to a piece of equipment that is now widely used in hospitals and elite doctors' offices. The medical C Arm (also commonly referred to as an x-ray image intensifier or Fluoroscope) takes x-rays and uses them to produce a "live feed" that is then displayed on a TV screen.

Since medical C Arms were released in 1955, hospitals and other institutions in the medical filed have used the machines with increasing frequency. In the current time, there are four main manufacturers of medical C Arms.

There are two general ways in which a medical C Arm machine in used: as a fixed piece of machinery that is kept in one particular screening room, or as mobile equipment that can be used in a theatre for lectures and the like.

There are many different reasons that fixed medical C Arms are currently used in the majority of hospitals across the country. Typical situations that benefit from the use of medical C Arms include endoscopy studies, therapeutic studies, angiography studies, cardiac studies, barium studies, and fertility studies.

Mobile medical C Arms are smaller than their fixed counterpart so that they can easily be transported to various destinations. As technology continues to grow, medical C Arms continue to become more and more powerful.

Mobile medical C-Arms aid various educational applications and are typically used in hospitals for orthopedic imaging in theatre, neurological imaging in theatre, endovascular imaging in theatre, and neurological imaging in theatre.

While all of this sounds helpful for the medical field, it's important to understand the attractiveness of the medical C Arm to patients.

Patients appreciate the fact that medical C Arms help to minimize invasiveness during the many different surgical or non-surgical procedures. This fact added to the reduced discomfort and high accuracy makes medical C Arms a favored technology to both medical professionals and patients.

On the financial side of things, the use of medical C Arms leads to more cost-effective outpatient care in hospitals.

Another trait that medical C Arms have that makes them desirable is their high level of versatility. Medical C Arms can be used in many different applications including vascular, urological, neurovascular, spinal, and cardiac applications.

Physicians undoubtedly appreciate the accurate and instant information that these pieces of equipment are able to report, while x-ray lab technicians will enjoy the simplicity of the machinery and the elaborate information that is given.

Ever since invented in 1955, these machines continue to improve and become superior. It is easy to see why medical C Arms are so prevalent in the medical field.
