Philips Veradius Unity C-Arm
Imaging technology has come a long way in the last 60 years. X-Rays go through soft tissue and reflect harder tissues such as bone. X-Ray images show these harder substances as white. This is why on an X-Ray, you can see skeletons. On an Ultrasound, it is much easier to see soft tissue. This would be used mainly on organ systems, instead of an X-Ray for bones.
At Soma Technology we offer many imaging options. Top manufacturers include GE, Siemens, and of course, Philips. We refurbish these C-arms to their original equipment manufacturer’s specifications.
