SVS 2011: Ziehm Imaging Presents Latest Mobile C-armTechnology for Intraoperative use

CHICAGO and ORLANDO, Florida, June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

New Generation of the Ziehm Vision RFD Offers Lower-Cost Imaging Option for Hybrid ORs

Ziehm Imaging has launched a new generation of the Ziehm Vision RFD mobile C-arm. Offering outstanding imaging and a liquid cooling system which allows it to be used over an almost unlimited period of time, the new version is an attractive choice for hybrid ORs. Thanks to its mobility and significantly lower investment costs, the Ziehm Vision RFD hybrid edition is a reliable alternative to fixed installations in hybrid ORs, especially for hospitals with space and budgetary constraints. Combining the Ziehm Vision RFD with the SmartVascular software, the manufacturer offers the perfect bundle for vascular surgery.

High-quality imaging for interventional surgery

Complex procedures in cardiovascular surgery or cardiology can only be carried out in conjunction with reliable, high-resolution intraoperative imaging. The hybrid edition features innovative flat-panel technology and delivers distortion-free images with over 16,000 shades of gray and a resolution of 1.5k x 1.5k pixels. The detector is not affected by magnetic fields so it also produces distortion-free, detail-rich images when close to MR scanners. The square display format creates a significantly larger visible area with up to 60 percent more information per X-ray than conventional image intensifiers.

Reliable performance

The high-power hybrid edition from Ziehm Imaging is tailored exactly to hybrid OR requirements. The compact, 20 kW monoblock generator with a rotating anode guarantees a variable pulse width between 4 and 50 ms for crystal-clear images. With up to 25 images per second, the hybrid edition also produces high-quality X-rays of moving objects such as a beating heart. Its active liquid cooling system (Advanced Active Cooling) keeps the operating temperature steady, preventing the generator from overheating and disrupting imaging. The injector interface synchronizes injection of contrast media with the imaging process.

New vascular surgery workflow

This next-generation C-arm also comes with SmartVascular, Ziehm Imaging's intuitive software solution that considerably simplifies imaging in vascular surgery. SmartVascular introduces an entirely new workflow for fast results. It enables surgeons to create a digital subtraction angiography at any time without having to use the touchscreen. It automates all process steps from DSA to roadmapping, allowing vascular procedures to be planned with minimum amounts of contrast media and shorter fluoroscopy times. The new software is compatible with all Ziehm Vision C-arms.

The hybrid edition smoothes the transition from conventional to minimally invasive surgery. It increases reliability by enabling surgeons to check progress during procedures, which in turn reduces the risk of follow-up operations and speeds patient recovery. In 2011, Ziehm Imaging's mobile C-arms were recognized by market analysts Frost & Sullivan as an integral part of interventional radiology in hybrid ORs.

Ziehm Imaging is presenting its hybrid edition at the SVS congress in Chicago, IL, from June 16-18. You can find Ziehm Imaging at Booth 529, Hall D2.
