A mobile fluoroscopic imaging system with a flat-panel detector (FPD) facilitates vascular, cardiac, and orthopedic surgical management.

The Ziehm Imaging (Nuremberg, Germany) Ziehm Vision RFD C-arm is a high-performance intraoperative imaging system for the treatment of cardiovascular and degenerative musculoskeletal conditions. Two options are available, a cardiovascular-focused 20.5 x 20.5 cm FPD, and a 31 x 31 cm model for highly demanding orthopedic, trauma, or cardiovascular interventions that require more information in one image. Three synchronized, touchscreen graphical interfaces with SmartEye technology provide intuitive operation for technologists with reduced training time.

Both FPD use the latest complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology to provide optimal soft tissue and bone contrast with high spatial resolution and low noise levels. Additional features include 165 degrees of orbital movement; a pulsed monoblock generator with 25 kW power performance, with advanced active cooling to enable extended case times; automatic optimization of dose and image quality; and beam filtration for reduced skin entrance dose. The Ziehm Vision RFD will be available through Carestream (Rochester, NY, USA).

“The partnership with Carestream confirms Ziehm Imaging’s industry-leading technology. As a result of this partnership, we're able to provide Carestream and its customers with one of the most innovative C-arms on the market,” said Nelson Mendes, President and CEO of Ziehm Imaging. “The Ziehm Vision RFD delivers advanced surgical care with the Ziehm Usability Concept, exceptional image quality, and helps to reduce exposure significantly with the next-generation SmartDose, thereby providing a very unique package.”

“The addition of the Ziehm C-arm to our medical imaging portfolio, backed by Carestream’s deep experience in radiology and fluoroscopy applications, is another example of our commitment to meet the evolving needs of our customers and their patients,” said Steve Romocki, worldwide product line manager for radiology systems at Carestream.

A C-arm is an imaging scanner whose name derives from the shape of the arm used to connect between the x-ray source and x-ray detector. Although C-arms have radiographic capabilities, they are used primarily for fluoroscopic imaging in surgical, orthopedic, and emergency procedures. The devices provide high-resolution X-ray images intraoperatively and in real time, allowing the physician to monitor progress and immediately make any corrections.
