OEC C- Arms VS Philips Pulsera C-Arms

Both OEC and Philips manufacture C-Arms. There are many differences and similarities between both, and today we will share some of those with you. Servicing, power, and parts availability are some of the main reasons why facilities tend to lean towards the OEC C-Arm. Facilities are able to choose what’s best for them and without a doubt, both models have made a wide impact in the industry.

Maintenance and Servicing
Proper maintenance and servicing are crucial for all medical imaging equipment, having a trustworthy engineer close by is important and being able to rely on them is necessary. In the case that you would like to hire a third-party engineer, it is more difficult to find an experienced and affordable one who will service a Philips system, whereas finding one who will service an OEC system is rather easy.

Parts Availability
In the secondary market for parts, one is able to find more depth and stock for OEC parts rather than Philips parts. Philips parts also tend to be more costly due to their scarceness. Having easy access to parts is crucial when dealing with used medical imaging equipment.

If your facility tends to patients with longer vascular studies or even bariatric patients, you will require more power from your medical imaging equipment. The OEC model offers more power, and if your facility requires a medium-powered system, The OEC 8800 might be the best option for you.

Every user has the power to determine what is best for their facility, and although we mention the OEC model as the most convenient, Philips does not disappoint when it comes to quality and variety in their systems.
