November 30, 2014 At this year’s RSNA annual meeting, Ziehm Imaging will highlight Ziehm Vision RFD 3-D, a 3-D C-arm with flat-panel technology that provides a 16-cm edge length per scan volume.

Ziehm Vision RFD 3-D combines 25 kW generator with an iterative reconstruction algorithm and patented SmartScan rotation to offer 180° image information of any anatomical structure.

With up to seven vertebrae in one scan volume, it offers the largest 3-D image volume in the market. For 2-D imaging in daily routine, the system offers a small footprint of less than 0.8 sqm.

Fully motorized in four axes, Vision RFD 3-D is ideally suited for hybrid operating room application. Offering a flexible, space- and cost-saving alternative to fixed-install systems, the C-arm features a joystick module with a function for defining an isocenter around which the system moves concentrically. In addition to numerous orthopedic applications, the isocentric functionality offers added clinical value in particular for cardiac applications.

Other features include a 20 cm x 20 cm flat-panel and miniaturized design, 20 kW monoblock generator with a rotating anode and an active liquid cooling system (Advanced Active Cooling).

Also on display is Ziehm Solo Portable, a single unit designed for field operations comprising a compact and versatile C-arm with an integrated rotating touchscreen monitor that can be fully dismantled for transport. Features specially designed for field operations include sturdy transport wheels to withstand uneven terrain.
