NUREMBERG, Germany, October 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
For the first time, Ziehm Imaging now also offers its mobile C-arm Ziehm Vision R with a powerful 20 kW generator. The compact monoblock generator triples the performance of the predecessor model and can be used for unlimited fluoroscopy time in the OR as it is water-cooled. Ziehm Vision R thus opens up new imaging possibilities for analog C-arms in vascular surgery.
More power for high-quality imaging in the OR
Complementing key image-processing components, the generator power of a C-arm plays a defining role in everyday clinical workflows as it ensures reliable, high-quality images during surgical procedures.
Thanks to the new generator, Ziehm Vision R can display even the smallest anatomical structures and gives surgeons clear visualization at any stage during the intervention. With its rotating anode, the 20 kW monoblock generator uses a variable pulse width of between 4 and 50 ms to produce crystal-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.
Ziehm Imaging further expands its leadership in innovation
Ziehm Imaging has maintained its position as the innovation leader in the field of mobile
C-arms for many years. With the introduction of its new 20 kW generator, the Nuremberg-based company is once again setting standards in mobile X-ray technology. Ziehm Imaging has received many awards for its mobile C-arms, including market research company Frost & Sullivan's European Product Leadership Award 2011.
