Ziehm unveils key solutions at Arab Health
Nuremberg (Germany), January 29, 2013
Ziehm Imaging, a market and innovation leader for mobile C-arms, is showcasing its tailored solutions for vascular specialists, interventional radiologists and cardiologists at the ongoing Arab Health expo in Dubai.
The German manufacturer said it has on display the award-winning product portfolio that offers a cost-efficient and flexible alternative to fixed installed systems in the OR without compromising the imaging capabilities.
The highlight of the imaging portfolio displayed is the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition, said a statement from the innovation leader.
Thanks to a global distribution agreement with the Swedish manufacturer Stille, Ziehm Imaging is presenting a package solution for hybrid ORs (an all-purpose cardiovascular procedural suite) for the first time, it added.
The hybrid OR combines all the features of a traditional cardiac surgery operating room with those of a traditional cath lab.
The Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition and the Stille imagiQ2 OR table for vascular surgery form a powerful duo for interventional surgery. With its combination of flat-panel technology, a powerful 20 kW generator and active liquid cooling system, the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition provides reliable intraoperative imaging even for complex procedures.
The new Stille imagiQ2 OR table delivers maximum precision, reduces radiation exposure and, with its high level of flexibility, is ideal for use in hybrid operating rooms.
Featuring innovative flat-panel technology, the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition delivers high-resolution images with over 16,000 shades of grey and a good resolution.
"The image quality is comparable to many fixed imaging systems. Very often, I forget that I use a mobile system," stated Grayson H. Wheatley III, MD from Arizona Heart Institute.
Tailored to the needs of modern hybrid ORs, the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition offers the required imaging capabilities while allowing for maximum flexibility, he said.
"The patient does not have to be moved to another OR when open surgery is required. "I perform more and more hybrid procedures that combine the advantages of traditional open surgery with image-guided, catheter-based interventions with the Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition," Wheatley III added.-TradeArabia News Service
