The Refurbishing Process

When it comes to the refurbishment of a GE OEC 9900 C-Arm, we take immense pride in our meticulous process. We understand the importance of this equipment in your medical practice, so we ensure every refurbished piece is as good as new. Here’s an in-depth look at our systematic refurbishing journey.

1. Initial Inspection and Decontamination

Refurbishment begins with a comprehensive system inspection to detect early damage or malfunctions. The C-Arm is then moved to our specialized decontamination station for thorough cleaning and disinfection using an antimicrobial cleaner. We carefully remove dried blood-borne pathogens from the panels, ensuring complete cleanliness before refurbishment.

2. Documentation and Prioritization

After the decontamination, we document all necessary information about the system, including its date of manufacture, serial number, arrival date, and source. We then uploaded the system onto our CRM. Our operations team designates an order and prioritizes the system based on various factors like demand, urgency, and complexity.

3. Disassembly and Parts Replacement

Afterward, we carefully disassemble the system down to its frame. Our dedicated paint department meticulously sands the panels before applying a fresh coat of top-notch medical-grade paint. Our skilled engineers diligently replace any necessary parts, meticulously inspect all cable assemblies, and rigorously test power supplies. Any components that do not meet OEM specifications are promptly replaced to ensure optimal performance.

4. Calibration and Testing

Once the parts replacement is complete, we begin the calibration process. Every detail is thoroughly checked, from adjusting monitor alignment, brightness, and contrast to conducting an arc test and checking camera alignment. We erase all patient information from the system, adhering strictly to HIPAA compliance.

5. Quality Control and Documentation

After a rigorous testing phase, we reassemble the machine and conduct quality control. This includes inspecting the system’s cosmetics, verifying software and accessories, and reviewing the refurbishment log. A third-party physicist inspects the equipment to ensure it meets state guidelines.

Finally, we document the entire process, including taking pictures of the system for customer documentation packets and uploading these details into our CRM.

Final Thoughts

The OEC 9900 Elite GE C-Arm is one of the most popular and powerful tools that offer exceptional clarity, precision, and ease of use. Its advanced features and specifications, long lifespan, and comprehensive service coverage make it a valuable investment for any healthcare professional. Whether you’re purchasing a new or refurbished system, this guide has provided the information needed to make an informed decision.

What to Consider When Buying a C-Arm

If you’re in the market for a new C-Arm, there are some essential things to consider before making a purchase. It’s not just about the initial cost. Other factors include the 5-year cost of ownership, financing, warranty, radiation exposure, room setup, applications training, and mobility. Here we will discuss these considerations in detail so you can make an informed decision when selecting the right C-Arm for your medical practice.

5-Year Cost of Ownership

Looking at the total cost of owning and operating a C-Arm over five years is essential. This includes the initial purchase price and associated expenses, such as service contracts and repair costs, that may arise during this period. At ImagPros, we offer extended warranties and service contracts that cover parts and labor for up to five years after purchase, giving you peace of mind with your equipment investment. Learn more about the 5-year cost of ownership between a new and refurbished C-Arm here.


The warranty changes depending on the model of the C-Arm you are considering and whether it’s new or refurbished. For example, a new Skan-C C-Arm comes with 5-year parts and a 1-year labor warranty, while a refurbished C-Arms comes with a 1-year part and labor warranty. It’s essential to understand what the warranty covers and for how long before purchasing. 

Radiation Exposure

Radiation exposure is essential when considering which type of C-Arm to buy. For example, the Skan-C C-Arm has a patented radiation technology that reduces exposure. This is beneficial for all practices that use fluoroscopy on a weekly basis. 

Other considerations include a lead vest and thyroid collars (two included with every C-Arm purchase at ImagPros). In addition, it’s also a requirement to wear radiation badges that are monitored on a monthly basis. These badges monitor radiation exposure for your doctors and rad techs to make sure they aren’t being overexposed.

Room Setup

It is important to ensure you have enough space in your room to accommodate your C-Arm during procedures. For example, room layouts should be 10×10 minimum, 10×12 is better, and 12×12 or larger is best. Typically these rooms are required to be lead-lined, but requirements differ from state to state.

With each C-Arm purchase, ImagPros offers a free shielding plan, which helps protect staff, patients, and the environment, and keeps your practice in compliance. To learn more about our customized shielding plan click here.

Your room should have a 110v 20 amp dedicated outlet ideally an ethernet cord to plug into the monitor cart, if a large monitor on the wall is desired then having a plug on the wall is needed. Also, if possible having a recessed plug on the floor for the table is nice for reducing trip hazards but not required.

Applications Training


When purchasing any type of medical imaging equipment, you must have access to proper training and education to get maximum use out of your device. For example, the Skan-C and OEC C-Arm have comprehensive training packages that include in-person applications training, live cases, online courses, instructional videos, and live webinars. When you partner with ImagPros, our knowledgeable team of professionals can answer any questions about proper use and maintenance.


The moveability of the C-Arm is another vital factor to consider before buying. Skan-C has a 40°over-rotation, while the OEC has 25° unless it’s the Super-C, and these models are hard to find. The over-rotation is important for being able to move the device around to meet your needs. For example, the more over-rotation you have in your C-Arm, the less you have to move the patient around.                


Do you pay cash out of pocket or do you finance? Most of our doctors find that financing is the way to go. This way you’re able to keep the cash in your bank to run and operate your business effectively. Financing offers deferred payments which allow you to get the system in the door making revenue before worrying about any payments. Please also make sure that your financing solution qualifies for IRS Rule 179. This will typically put between 30%-35% of your purchase price back into your bottom line at the end of the year. There are good finance programs and bad finance programs. Be sure to ask about pre-payment penalties, rates, and loan terms. 

These are only some of the C-arm options with various features and advantages. By working with a company that specializes in connecting customers with the right medical imaging equipment, you can be sure to find the perfect fit for your practice.

ImagPros provides a wide selection of C-arm systems from the top brands in the industry, as well as installation and maintenance services. Contact us today at 248-951-9020 to find the perfect C-arm for your needs.
