I apologize for asking this question in so many variables, but the PMs I get indicate continued interest. Given a choice without regards to price, which of the above fluoroscopic c-arms would you get to do pain management procedures?

Assume you could get whichever options you wanted on each c-arm to make features similar.

I have heard too consistent complaints to even consider a Siemens or a Ziehm. You MUST get one with a rotating anode
