Ziehm Vision²

Superior Imaging Performance

Ziehm Vision² creates a new standard in mobile C-arm functionality including highly demanding minimally invasive and interventional procedures performed in areas such as urology, neurosurgery and orthopedics.

Clear View

  • Pulse technology – Up to 30 frames/s with the most compact monoblock generator for best patient access and clearest image quality.

  • 1k x 1k HD CCD camera system – Industry-leading, high dynamic CCD camera clearly visualizes even the tiniest anatomical structures.

  • 18" high brightness monochrome TFT monitors – twin 18'' TFT monitors with Intelliguard provide powerful diagnostic performance.

  • Object Detected Dose Control ODDC

    Ziehm Vision² provides superb image quality with Object Detected Dose Control ODDC at the lowest possible dose:
  • • Excellent real-time image control over 2 x 256 measurement cells covering the entire field of view
  • • Optimum histogram in each cell to control dose and video signal for independent object positioning
  • • Real-time motion detection
  • • Automatic adjustment of noise reduction level
  • • Automatic adjustment of pulse frequency if the object does not move
  • • Significant dose savings in clinical performance
  • • Automatic Metal Correction AMC without manual adjustments or flaring

  • Vision Center – Unlimited Freedom in Imaging Workflow

  • • Comfortable operation of the system over synchronized TFT touch-screens conveniently mounted on both C-arm and monitor cart.
  • • Intuitive workflow through logical user guidance with clear and straightforward icons makes the system pleasant to work with.
  • • Ziehm SmartEye – a live control image on the user TFT – ensures a smooth communication between operator and surgeon.
  • • Application-oriented anatomical programs optimally adjust the system performance to any body region, providing excellent image quality.
  • • Open architecture makes the system fully future-proof and ensures unlimited upgradeability.

  • Advanced Active Cooling for Prolonged Fluoroscopy Time

  • • High quality heat management using closed-loop circuit and heat exchanger integrated invisibly within the tube housing
  • • Cooling capacity almost triple in comparison to conventional units
  • • Unlike less efficient cooling fans, remains totally unaffected by the use of sterile plastic covers placed over the tube head
  • • Has been specially developed to allow for prolonged fluoroscopy times in highly demanding imaging procedures, such as vascular, electro-physiological and endoscopic applications

  • Comprehensive Archiving Possibilities

    Ziehm Vision² provides a wide range of integrated archiving devices for image storage such as:
  • • Hard disk
  • • USB port
  • • DVD writer
  • • Option to save images in DICOM and TIF format, downsized DICOM, TIF and JPG format
  • • Selection of high quality video paper or film printers

  • Compatibility with the Latest Navigation Systems

    The combination of the Ziehm Vision² with a Navigation System creates a surgical environment with excellent real-time image guidance, allowing the surgeon to operate with optimum precision and accuracy. The proven compatibility of Ziehm Vision² with various Navigation Systems, e.g. Medtronic and BrainLAB, guarantees the highest level of connectivity and greatest success in any navigation-guided procedure.

    NetPort – Providing the Latest Medical Information Technology

    Exceptional Digital Network Integration
  • • Fully integrated Ziehm NetPort based on DICOM 3.0 communication protocols
  • • Running in 'Primary Capture' Mode
  • • Original images and patient data can be transferred to and from the PACS or HIS/RIS
  • Using the new DICOM Image Retrieve module implemented in Ziehm NetPort, the surgical team benefits from unrestricted access to all image information available in the PACS. This eliminates the need for an additional workstation or monitor. Ziehm NetPort also supports DICOM Multiframe Class, allowing the transfer of dynamic image sequences to and from the operating room.

    Ziehm Vision² provides the following comprehensive Range of DICOM Classes:

  • • Storage Class including Multiframe and Storage Commitment
  • • Print Class
  • • Media Class
  • • Worklist Class including Modality
  • • Performed Procedure Step (MPPS)
  • • Query/Retrieve Class
  • • Verification Class
