The C-arm machine is a fluoroscopy system. Fluoroscopy is a method providing real-time X-ray imaging, which is particularly useful for guiding various diagnostic and interventional procedures. Though you should remember that C-arms are generally not used in diagnostics, they are made for surgery.
What is C-arm fluoroscopy?
A C-arm is an imaging scanner intensifier. The name derives from the C-shaped arm used to connect the x-ray source and x-ray detector to one another. C-arms have radiographic capabilities, though they are used primarily for fluoroscopic intraoperative imaging during surgical, orthopedic and emergency care procedures.
Does a fluoroscopy hurt?
While fluoroscopy itself is not painful, the particular procedure being performed may be painful, such as the injection into a joint or accessing of an artery or vein for angiography.
