Ziehm Vision RFD Mobile C-Arm Offers Fixed System Quality

 

July 23, 2009

The Ziehm Vision RFD mobile C-arm uses a flat panel reportedly equal in quality to fixed digital fluoroscopy systems and is designed for use in endovascular surgery and interventional cardiology and radiology.

It combines flat-panel technology with the sophisticated ODDC (object detected dose control) software and specially designed anatomical programs for good image quality at minimal dose. The flat-panel detector allows for fully digital, distortion-free imaging and better access to the patient due to the larger C-arm opening and the 165 degree orbital rotation. It uses pulse technology at up to 25 frames per second to provide sharp, high contrast images of vasculature, bone and soft tissue structures.

The 30 x 30 cm size of the flat panel detector and the 1.5 x 1.5 k resolution provides extended dynamic range and 49 percent greater anatomical viewing, when compared to 12-inch image intensifier systems delivering comprehensive information about the patient’s anatomy.

The Ziehm Vision RFD was cleared by the FDA in June 2009.
