Are reimbursements the same for all refurbished C-Arm equipment?

purchase an OEC c arm

Every medical facility needs to understand that the costs may vary when it comes to purchasing medical imaging equipment. With that being said, the prices for a C-Arm can range from 10,000 to as much as 400,000 USD on an initial equipment purchase. That means that spending more money on equipment won’t necessarily bring better reimbursements. However, that does not say that the least expensive C-Arm is the best choice.

Depending on the approach taken for the C-Arm use, the initial cost may not affect the return on investment.

For instance, facet injections can be considered for pain management or even vascular studies. These procedures would be reimbursed at different amounts. Although, these amounts might be exactly similar whether the studies were conducted through a 1997 C-Arm or a 2017 C-Arm. Even if a medical facility decides to go with a less expensive system, there could still be a high return on investment amount obtained at the end of the day.

Alternatively, when the facility is still in the start-up part of testing a market, they would not necessarily spend the capital up-front for the best system in the market. Fortunately, the right system can be laid out for the moment. This would, in turn, bring in the same return on investment amount that might be obtained somewhere down the line of the facility’s growth.

In the long run, it can be found that the needs of a facility can be dictated by the individual circumstances where numerous concerns would come into play. However, reimbursement rates should not be one of them.

If your medical facility is seeking to purchase an OEC c arm or other medical imaging equipment at the best prices, Amber USA is the best place to consult regarding your purchase. Amber USA has a long-standing reputation for issuing the highest quality used and refurbished medical imaging equipment that is guaranteed to satisfy your facility’s needs as well as patient needs.

For buyers who are new to purchasing medical imaging equipment, there are more than a few things to keep in mind. Amber USA has found that through a quality vendor, the right personnel would be able to help buyers consider all aspects for their purchase. However, while a good vendor is the right direction to go through, it is still essential to know what to look for along the way.

Consider the following steps to keep tabs on the project without affecting uptime:


Every medical facility seeking to purchase medical imaging equipment should keep in mind that the vendor should be able to inspect a system before purchase. If the vendor doesn’t offer an inspection process, it should be demanded. If the system is staged at another facility, a knowledgeable representative should be sent to take a look on behalf of the medical facility purchasing the system.


Whether the vendor offers transportation or not, it is up to the buyer to request for photos prior to the transportation. Additionally, air-ride trucks can be requested for hauling the equipment. Since mishaps can occur during transport, the images would be able to help assign the costs to the right party.


The buyer should make sure that a knowledgeable representative is on site when the equipment arrives. A thorough inspection should be made on the packaging until the unit comes out of the truck. Once the system is unloaded, any visible damage should be identified and reported immediately.
While these steps may seem obvious, it is vital to consider them when making such a significant purchase. Amber USA makes it a priority to focus on every aspect to ensure customers receive their equipment efficiently.

Amber USA also issues a variety of used and refurbished medical imaging equipment at the best prices including MRI machines, Ultrasound systems, an x ray machine for sale, and much more in a variety of brands according to client preferences.

To go wireless is a big step any organization would be taking. There are numerous advantages and disadvantages when it comes to going wireless. Therefore, it is essential to take a look at both the positives and negatives before making a choice to go wireless.

The following is a set of information to help a medical facility decide what would be the right choice:
The advantages of using wireless x-ray technology include:

• Portability.
Wireless x-ray technology is portable by nature. This would help a medical facility improve versatility and flexibility since the equipment can be moved to different locations.
• Accident risk is reduced.
With the removal of extra cables, there would be a good chance of reduced accidents from tripping on cords and ending up with broken equipment.
• Readily available images.
With a wireless system, the image would always be readily available from any location. This adds to the advantage of convenience and efficiency in the workplace.
The disadvantages of wireless x-ray technology:

• Connectivity issues.
Wireless systems are incredibly efficient until a connectivity issue arises. If there is a dull spot in the workplace where there is no chance of getting a signal, it may interfere with connectivity. When considering the amazing advantage of high-tech equipment, it would be a complete disappointment when there is no signal.
• Upfront cost.
Wireless x-ray technology is typically more expensive to purchase than conventional systems. In terms of value, wireless x-ray technology does provide added benefits. However, the cost may depend on the facility.

If wireless x-ray technology seems like the right choice for your medical facility, Amber USA is here to provide. However, if you decided these systems aren’t the right fit for you, Amber USA also offers a variety of other radiology equipment according to customer preferences. In addition to that, Amber USA also provides a range of other used and refurbished medical imaging equipment including an OEC C Arm, ultrasound machine for sale, MRI machine, and much more.

xray machine for sale, used ultrasound machine x ray machine for sale,

The world of technology has provided a way to ease the mind of many, including the medical world by being able to quickly, effectively, and safely store and obtain digital files. Nothing proves this better than when a disaster strikes are files and data can be restored through backup and recovery technology. However, while backup and recovery does seem easy to manage, it requires proactive treatment for the best results in the event of a failure.

Backup of data is virtually all about copying and storing files in a safe location over a digital medium. If files and data are only available in a single location, you may have to consider the following:
• How would that data be retrieved in case the machine is damaged?
• What happens when someone accidentally permanently deletes a critical folder?
• A hard drive storing all important information crashes?

By that logic, a medical facility may have to face a lot more than fear when losing patient information. That’s where the importance of backup comes in. With the use of an efficient backup solution, the backed-up file can immediately be pulled out and copied to the new system to cover a moment of carelessness or failure.

Data recovery, however, works on a larger scale. Although, it is similar to backup.
Since adverse events that may pose a risk to data loss can happen either on individual devices or across an entire network, backup and data recovery is best served for excellent results to maintain data integrity.

For every medical facility using imaging equipment, Amber USA’s advice is to make sure the facility has a data recovery and backup plan available.
On the other hand, when looking to purchase medical imaging equipment, Amber USA can be the go-to place. Amber USA provides a set of the highest quality used and refurbished medical imaging equipment including an xray machine for sale, used ultrasound machine, MRI scanner, and much more.

Is it getting more challenging to keep your mini C-Arm in position?

Some medical facilities may face the unfortunate articulation of the C-Arm gradually drooping lower throughout scans. However, keep in mind that this is actually a very common problem that most C-Arm users experience. Fortunately, it is also an elementary problem to solve.

The following are five simple steps that C-Arm users in a medical facility can take to return their C-Arm devices back to the firm, stable position it was in the initial stages of the purchase.

Although this is a simple procedure, it is recommended that when following these steps, you watch a video that guides you on how to perform each task accurately. That way you can make sure the best results are obtained through the following instructions.

1. Try to obtain a 3/16 Allen wrench and a small screwdriver (flat-head).
2. By gently prying the rubber cap with the screwdriver, try to remove the cap located in the base of the arm.
3. Slightly tighten the screw that should be present beneath the cap. Try to screw the cap firmly but not as tight as possible. If the screw if over-tightened, the arm movement may be too stiff to use.
4. Test the arm movement according to the desired adjustment and repeat the above steps as needed.
5. Replace the rubber cap as it was previously and continue to use the C-Arm as usual.

While these steps are the easiest possible way to return your mini C-Arm back to its firm stage in positioning, if you do still face drooping problems after these adjustments, a broader issue may be the problem, and you may require expert assistance to take a look at the problem.

GE CT scanner for sale

PET/CT scanners have become one of the most effective forms of medical imaging available to-date. Through the combination of advanced nuclear imaging techniques, molecular imaging known as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT), a highly sophisticated process was introduced.

The cost of PET/CT scanners.
For PET/CT scanners, the cost may depend on the region it is sold, the healthcare system, and the type of scan being imaged. However, as compared to the individual PET scanners and CT scanners, the PET/CT scanner is known for being costly in the market.

How PET/CT systems are used.
Generally, PET/CT scanners are known for being used to locate cancer and for identifying other diseases within the body. Since damaged cells or cancerous cells use more glucose, doctors would be able to determine the size of the cancerous cell and the grade by examining the rate the tumor is infused with a glucose solution.

Additionally, while being able to detect cancer, the system can also help doctors identify if the cancerous cells have spread through the body of the patient and how useful it would be to conduct radiation or chemotherapy treatments. Once the treatment has been completed, the PET/CT scanner would also be able to detect whether the tumor has returned.

Other uses of a PET/CT scanner.
• These systems can help track and observe the blood flow to the heart and other parts of the body.
• Identifying heart diseases or other infections to the heart.
• Determining if angioplasty or bypass surgery would benefit different areas of the heart.
• Evaluation of brain abnormalities.
• Mapping the heart and brain function for research purposes.

Which Is The Better Choice, Image Intensifier Or Flat Panel Detector

Mini C Arm for Sale

Flat Panel Detector C-Arms are becoming more and more popular today. This may even result in Image Intensifier C-Arms becoming a thing of the past sooner than later. But as it may be, new buyers are still confronted with the issue of going analog or digital. Which is indeed the better option given your needs and budget?

Flat Panel Detector C-Arms are capable of offering much less image degradation than Image Intensifiers. And that too, over a more extended period of time. While Image Intensifiers are indeed capable of providing high-quality images, the quality may decrease over time. Another advantage of the Flat Panel Detector is the ability to magnify without having to reduce scale. And also the higher resolution offered by Flat Panel Detectors makes them the obvious fit for better image quality.

But higher image quality is not the only factor to be considered for many. The budget and the availability are often limiting circumstances. But if you cannot afford a Flat Panel Detector C-Arm, there is no reason to go C-Arm less. Image Intensifier C-Arms are available at much lower prices, and they often suffice for general use in many cases. While Flat Panel Detector C-Arms may not yet be a thing in the used and refurbished markets, their predecessors are. That means that you can even acquire a used or refurbished Image Intensifier C-Arm at an even lower cost.

Flat Panel Detector C-Arms are the obvious choice given an unlimited budget or better image quality over all else. But for many general facilities with a moderate patient turnout, Image Intensifier C-Arms may suffice for now.
