CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — At this year’s RSNA, Ziehm Imaging strengthens its leadership in mobile C-arm imaging with a complete CMOS portfolio extending from compact mini C-arms to powerful high-end devices. The new CMOSline1 is aimed at professionals who are not content with the ordinary and who strive for the optimal. These premium C-arms offer an enhanced CMOS imaging chain from generator to detector. Furthermore, they come with a Ziehm Imaging CMOS detector that is tailored exactly to the needs of the surgeon. Based on the tried-and-true flat-panel detector, the new CMOSline enables superior image quality by showing significantly more detail. It offers greater sensitivity, enabling surgeons to achieve better resolution – especially in magnification modes – while minimizing dose levels.
At RSNA 2017, Ziehm Imaging will showcase all units in the CMOSline edition – with a 31 cm x 31 cm CMOS flat-panel detector for Ziehm Vision RFD 3D, Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition, and Ziehm Vision RFD, and a 20.5 cm x 20.5 cm CMOS flat-panel detector for Ziehm Solo FD.
Dose saving Beam Filtration technology
With the new CMOSline, Ziehm Imaging’s SmartDose2 concept now comes in a further developed version with the groundbreaking Beam Filtration technology.3 The new dose reduction technique for an optimized X-ray spectrum is part of the enhanced CMOS imaging chain. This combination enables an exceptional cut in skin entrance dose for all CMOSline systems. The premium line of Ziehm Imaging C-arms thus provides excellent image quality with a significantly lower dose.
Different volume options for ideal resolution in 3D imaging
Building on more than 10 years of experience in 3D imaging, the Ziehm Vision RFD 3D CMOSline features cutting-edge CMOS technology, bundling 2D and 3D functionality for greater intraoperative control, reducing the need for postoperative CT scans, and costly corrective surgeries. This mobile C-arm is thus ideal for high-end orthopedic, trauma and spinal interventions as well as for highly specialized maxillofacial and cochlear procedures. The CMOSline offers the freedom to choose from a range of 3D volume sizes to meet diverse needs in clinical routine. In addition to the standard volume of 16 cm x 16 cm x 16 cm, the Ziehm Vision RFD 3D now also provides two additional volume sizes for specialized applications. A dedicated larger field of view with 19.8 cm x 19.6 cm x 18.0 cm covers larger anatomical regions and delivers more
