INTRODUCTION: In most of the secondary health centres in India there is a provision of a single elective operation theatre, but they lack in advanced equipment's like C-arm compatible, Orthopaedic operation table with radiolucent top and traction attachments, fluoroscopic image intensifier unit (C-arm) and interlocking nailing sets, locking plate set, and AO femoral distracter.
While the x-ray tube rests under the patient table, the fluoroscopic image intensifier and spot film cassette generally are located above the table (or opposite the x-ray tube).
