C-arm manufacturer OEC Medical Systems reported strong third-quarter (end-September) results this month. The company posted revenues of $47.9 million, an increase of 23% over $39 million in sales for the same period last year. The quarter’s net income climbed 25%, from $3.4 million to $4.3 million.
