NUREMBERG, Germany, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- German medical device manufacturer Ziehm Imaging launched the new, compact Ziehm Solo(R) C-arm at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna. This agile and versatile C-arm delivers excellent image quality while requiring minimal OR space. The system provides flexible image display options and exceptional flexibility in connecting to existing OR monitors. Ziehm Solo was designed to meet the needs of pain management and orthopedic imaging as well as trauma and spine surgery. By virtue of its attractive price point, it is an interesting option for more limited hospital budgets.
Reduced radiation exposure
The space in the OR's sterile field is not only limited, but also in increasing demand as more and more devices are continually brought into this space. Ziehm Imaging responded to the requirements of small ORs by designing a system that occupies minimal space while providing optimal image processing and display. The CCD Camera can produce more than 4,000 gray scales. The optionally integrated metal correction program limits the over-exposure of a fluoroscopic image often caused by metal implants by recognizing metal objects (i.e. screws, plates, implants and instrumentation) in the field of view and adapting generator output accordingly. This is another way dose to the patient and OR staff may be reduced.
"The Ziehm Solo addresses especially the needs of the Orthopedic, Trauma
and Spine Surgeon," explains Martin Herzmann, Global Marketing Director at
Ziehm Imaging. "We aimed to develop a compact, flexible design with reduced
space requirements. We've carried our experience and know-how in developing
high-end systems over to our latest, more cost effective multi-purpose
system. Our refined image processing is now available in our entire product
folio. Ziehm Solo is especially interesting for smaller clinics and
