C-Arm tables enable fluoroscopy, a real-time imaging treatment based upon X-ray technology. These resin or carbon-fiber tables are built from radiolucent, polycarbonate material which allows X-rays to travel through. The tables are covered in smooth yet strong material that prevents abrasion of fragile surfaces, insuring the best image quality during fluoroscopy procedures.

Fluoroscopy is basically a video X-ray, offering a real-time view of an organ or internal area of the body. These images are displayed on a computer screen for the specialist or surgeon, and are used to guide the placement of a catheter, for instance, or for assessing stomach and bowel functions via barium (or another contrast agent) flow through the intestinal tract.

A fluoroscopy machine produces either a pulsing or continuous beam of X-rays which is shot against a tungsten target. An image intensifier increases the brightness of the image, translates it to the video viewer, and the flow of electrons through a number of body parts like bone and tissue give the surgeon a view of potential disease processes.

C-Arm tables enable imaging centers, pain care management centers and hospitals to deliver first-class patient comfort and stability while providing durability and longevity for flexible venues and cramped budgets. The polycarbonate C-Arm table does double duty both as an imaging table and in other medical locations.

C-arm tables have tough, expensive, locking casters for reliability and strength. The tables can be adjusted, either through maneuverable foot pedals or other switches and buttons, makes sure that patients can easily go from their wheelchair right to the table, and provide ergonomically correct heights for techs nurses and doctors. These c-arm tables also feature self-leveling features via centralized cable management systems, provide a more than adequate surface for larger imaging needs, and support patients about 550 pounds.
