The C-arm X-ray machine is X-ray equipment with a C-shaped frame, which is used for real-time dynamic imaging during surgery. C-arm machine has the advantages of low radiation dose, low risk of infection, small footprint and easy mobility, which is widely used in orthopedics, surgery, gynecology and other departments in hospitals.
The major uses of C-arm include orthopedic nailing, osteopathy, and repositioning; surgical implantation of pacemakers, removal of foreign objects from the body, some imaging procedures, and interventional procedures; incorporation with ozone machines for pain treatment, small needle treatment, and gynecologic tube guiding procedures.
With the further development of flat panel detector technology, the C-arm imaging system is now gradually upgraded from image intensifier to digital X-ray flat panel detector, resulting in lower radiation dose, larger effective imaging area, higher imaging quality, as well as gradually transformed into a smaller size to better meet the needs of clinical use. This article will list the top 5 c-arm machine manufacturers in the world.
Founded in 1896, Siemens Healthineers, a core division of the Siemens Group, is one of the leading C-arm machine manufacturers worldwide.
