Be Sharp! Be Clear! C-Arm Monitors

It's the 21st Century. I've said it once and I'll say it again. Technology is constantly improving. Gone are the days of Eight Tracks andCRT_Monitors-1 Video Tapes. We live in a digital world. A great example of this is our computer monitors. Computer Monitors used to be a big box CRT that would sit on top of the desk and take up a lot of space. Fast-forward to present day where the monitor is digital and so small that it has become handheld. 

Which brings us to C-Arms. Sure, all new C-Arms are being made with digital flat screen monitors. But not everybody can (or wants) to purchase a new C-Arm. The Philips and Siemens C-Arms started being manufactured with LED flat screen monitors in the mid 2000s. That said, the most common refurbished C-Arm being requested by our clients is the OEC 9800, a system originally manufactured with CRT monitors. So what if you want a fantastic refurbished OEC 9800 from Atlantis Worldwide. Do you have to just bite the bullet and buy a C-Arm with CRT monitors? 

The answer is NO. Atlantis Worldwide always replaces the monitors when refurbishing an OEC 9800 C-Arm but now we can install a flat screen monitor. This high definition LED flat screen monitor still has touch screen capabilities and allows the C-Arm to produce images with great clarity. The upgrade also seamlessly fits on the monitor cart in a way that you would never know that the C-Arm was manufactured with CRT monitors.
