Ziehm Unveils Mobile C-Arm With 20 kW Generator

October 18, 2011 — For the first time, Ziehm Imaging offers its Ziehm Vision R mobile C-arm with a powerful 20 kilowatt (kW) generator. The compact monoblock generator triples the performance of the predecessor model and can be used for unlimited fluoroscopy time in the operating room (OR), as it is water-cooled.

Thanks to the new generator, the device can display even the smallest anatomical structures and give surgeons clear visualization at any stage during the intervention. With its rotating anode, the generator uses a variable pulse width of between 4 and 50 ms to produce clear images.

Up to 25 frames per second enable high quality X-rays of vascular structures or cardiological and cardiosurgical visualizations with optimum contrast. The C-arm features active liquid cooling to keep the operating temperature steady, ensuring continuous imaging by preventing the generator from overheating.
