Ziehm Imaging Presents First Motorized C-arm for Use in Hybrid ORs at Arab Health 2014

NUREMBERG, Germany – At this year's Arab Health in Dubai, innovation leader Ziehm Imaging presents a mobile C-arm tailored exactly to hybrid OR requirements: Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition. The first fully motorized mobile C-arm features intuitive joystick operation, a 25 kW generator, various safety functions, and maximum image quality with minimal dose.

Innovative motorization

Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition offers a flexible, space- and cost-saving alternative to fix installed systems. "With the new generation of the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition we offer full motorization of a mobile C-arm in four axes: horizontal, vertical, orbital rotation and in angulation. Each position can be stored at the touch of a button and called up again at any time," says Klaus Hörndler, Managing Director of Ziehm Imaging. "This allows the operator to access the desired viewing angles and anatomic visualizations without having to constantly reposition the system on the OR table."

Distance Control

Ziehm Imaging motorized C-arms are equipped with Distance Control - an assistance system supporting non-contact collision protection. The automatic surface detection is integrated around the lower edge of the flat-panel. The movement stops immediately before entering a defined safety zone.

The new Hybrid Edition is the only mobile C-arm to offer an active liquid cooling system in the standard version. Advanced Active Cooling ensures reliable imaging without interruption even during lengthy procedures. The Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition delivers crystal-clear images with its rotating anode and 25 kW power. SmartDose, a comprehensive concept for dose reduction, combines a host of functions such as laser positioning, ODDC (Object Detected Dose Control), adaptive filtering technology and PreMag (radiation-free magnification).
