All systems are suitable for broad clinical applications in orthopedics, trauma, and neurosurgery, as well as gastroenterology, vascular and cardiac surgery or in urology.

Top-Rated Customer Satisfaction

The latest Quarterly User Satisfaction Report (Oct. 1, 2008) from data resource organization MD Buyline reveals No. 1 rankings for Siemens mobile C-Arms overall, as well as in the "Service Response Time" and "Service Repair Quality" categories. Since deliveries of the new generation ARCADIS C-arms began in May 2008, Siemens has completed more than 500 system installations worldwide, with a high marks from within the industry.

A recent survey of first-generation ARCADIS customers has shown that the overall satisfaction is very high. The rating on image quality has been especially positive, thanks to the newly implemented Enhanced Acquisition System (EASY), a bundle of automatic imaging processing features that further simplifies intraoperative imaging. With EASY, ARCADIS C-arms automatically analyze the images during acquisition to optimize dose, brightness, and contrast. Even off-center objects are now displayed with excellent clarity.

In addition, the revised design and functionalities of the new monitor trolley have been particularly well received. The ergonomically optimized and easily manageable monitor trolley with monitor screens can be adjusted in height and rotated by 180 degrees in the horizontal.

The ARCADIS Family of C-Arms

Siemens ARCADIC Varic, ARCADIS Avantic, and ARCADIS Orbic (Orbic 3D) mobile C-arms are based on syngo(R), an intuitively operated Siemens software platform that facilitates clinical workflows. For example, with syngo it is possible to view images from other modalities, store acquired images to archives or external storage media, such as CD, DVD or USB and select up to 200 default examination programs. To continuously improve the clinical workflow, the user interface integrates a basic menu to accelerate system operation and an extended menu for more complex requirements.
