Ziehm Academy - New Courses on the Practical Implementation of

Intra-Operative Imaging

NUREMBERG, Germany, October 13 /PRNewswire/ -- After the successful start of the worldwide Ziehm Academy Education Program at the beginning of the year, Ziehm Imaging, provider of mobile x-ray based imaging systems, is consequently expanding its training offer. The Ziehm Academy provides training in line with international standards, in order to keep its partners up to date with the latest developments in intra-operative x-ray-based imaging and to make the optimal use of mobile C-arms in a clinical environment possible.

At the beginning of 2008, Ziehm Imaging founded its Academy, consisting of a comprehensive education program for its clinical partners and users. Since then around 1000 participants have been intensively educated all over the world in all the relevant aspects for the optimal use of mobile C-arms in a clinical environment. Through initial training, hands-on workshops and special advanced courses students receive detailed technical and service knowledge about the entire range of Ziehm Imaging products and their clinical user area, for example in orthopedics and traumatology.

"In the last few years mobile radioscopy equipment has made huge leaps forward through the implementation of modern technology. Today, the mobile C-arm provides excellent picture quality and in conjunction with computer-aided surgery is developing new areas of implementation, e.g. endoscopic surgery," explains Martin Herzmann, Director of Global Marketing at Ziehm Imaging. "Development work is not sufficient to make innovative technology a safe and effective tool for surgeons. Ensuring that the user receives continual education is of key importance for the integration and acceptance of the newest technology. At the Ziehm Academy we offer comprehensive training, tailored precisely to the needs of the user. It is our aim to improve the clinical results and therefore the care of the patient."

New courses and online videos / training

Due to large demand, Ziehm Imaging has extended its course availability in the USA. In the future there will also be additional training in the areas of vascular imaging, 3D imaging, surgery, pain treatment, as well as detailed and background knowledge about mobile C-arms in general. In order to better meet the needs of the user, Ziehm Imaging has furthermore set up a special website. At http://www.ziehmacademy-us.com doctors and clients can find short educational videos and helpful tips about the use of the mobile C-arm in a clinical environment. In addition to this, users will be kept up to date with the latest technological developments by newsletter.

From October onwards, clinical user trainings will be available in Germany in modular form for beginners and advanced participants. Furthermore, additional educational facilities will be on the training schedule for distributors as well as medical technicians from reference clinics, to which all participants will be able to register online next year.

Moreover, as part of the Academy, Ziehm Imaging cooperates closely with clinical partners and scientific organizations in the USA. In special on-site courses, the so-called Mobile Learning Labs, doctors and clinic personnel receive intensive training in the practical implementation of mobile C-arms. The first Mobile Learning Lab took place at the end of 2007 in Texas in cooperation with the East Texas Society of Radiologic Technologists. Since then, the 589 participants of the Learning Labs have been educated at different facilities. By the end of the year five more Mobile Learning Labs are planned in the USA (Orlando FL; San Antonio TX; Houston TX; Denver CO and Long Beach CA). In Germany, Ziehm Imaging is in partnership with the Center for Applied Radiological Research at the University Hospital Giessen and Marburg. From December 2008 the Hospital will offer practical courses in radiation protection as part of the Ziehm Academy.

This year, globally, a total of 37 courses will be on offer in Nuremberg and the USA.

At the moment, an education centre is being specially built at the main headquarters in Nuremberg for the academy, which will be opened at the beginning of 2009. There will be three classrooms and an OP-Showroom for training purposes, as well as live demonstrations available.
