Ziehm Vision² FD

A Class if its Own



The Ziehm Vision² FD takes mobile C-arm imaging to a new level by introducing a fully-digital imaging chain with unique image quality and performance. The introduction of digital flat-panel detectors in mobile fluoroscopy marks a quantum leap in the technological development of mobile fluoroscopy. Targeted research in the field of photo semiconductor technology has brought about enormous benefits for both patients and surgeons. The slim profile of the flat-panel detector enables better patient access and simplified positioning by providing more free space within the C. An unmatched dynamic range allows for improved soft tissue imaging along with visualization of bony anatomy. The combination of fully-digital imaging in advanced applications such as in neurosurgery with navigation systems or Computer Aided Surgery opens up new possibilities, higher accuracy and premium image quality. The Vision² FD's compact design provides outstanding mobility suitable for any procedure.


Superior Imaging Performance with ClearView

Unique Innovations in Mobile Imaging

  • Ziehm Vision² FD incorporates cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art design offering fully-digital imaging with distortion-free images.

  • Clear View

  • • Pulse technology – Up to 25 frames/s with the most compact monoblock generator on the market for clearest image quality.
  • • High dynamic range - The flat-panel detector enables improved soft tissue imaging along with visualization of bony anatomy.
  • • 18" high brightness monochrome TFT monitors – twin 18'' TFT monitors with Intelliguard provide powerful diagnostic performance.

  • Integrated a-SI Detector

  • • Amorphous silicon photodiode TFT technology
  • • Cesium iodide scintillator
  • • 1024 x 1024 active pixels
  • • 14 bit AD converter, 32 bit image processing

  • Distortion-Free Imaging

  • • Imaging chain completely insensitive to magnetic fields
  • • Distortion-free imaging as opposed to conventional image intensifiers
  • • Outstanding Features and Benefits
  • • Highest contrast capabilities for state-of-the-art image quality
  • • Low-dose application benefits patients and users
  • • Pulsed generator with up to 30 frames/sec in full resolution
  • • Continuous high performance with Ziehm Advanced Active Cooling

  • Outstanding Features and Benefits

  • • Highest contrast capabilities for state-of-the-art image quality
  • • Low-dose application benefits patients and users
  • • Pulsed generator with up to 30 frames/sec in full resolution
  • • Continuous high performance with Ziehm Advanced Active Cooling

  • Vision Center – Unlimited Freedom in Imaging Workflow

  • • Synchronized TFT touch-screens conveniently mounted on both C-arm and monitor cart make it possible to fully control the system from both locations.
  • • Logical user menus with clear and straightforward icons make the system simple to operate and streamline workflow.
  • • Application-oriented anatomical programs optimally adjust the system´s performance the anatomic region of interest.
  • • A touchscreen control panel with an open architecture design simplifies future upgrades and product improvements.

  • Advanced Active Cooling for Virtually Unlimited Fluoroscopy Time

  • • Developed to allow for prolonged fluoroscopy times in highly demanding imaging procedures such as vascular surgery, electro-physiology and endoscopic applications.
  • • Heat management over a closed-loop circuit and heat exchanger integrated invisibly within the tube housing
  • • Nearly 3 times the cooling capacity compared to conventional C-arms
  • • Unlike systems using less efficient cooling fans, the Ziehm Vision² FD remains unaffected by the use of sterile plastic covers placed over the tube head
  • • In combination with pulsed fluoro enables continuous power in clinical performance

  • Comprehensive Archiving Possibilities – No Loss in Mobility

    The Ziehm Vision² FD 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, downsized DICOM, TIF and JPG format
  • • Selection of high quality video paper or film printers

  • NetPort – Providing the Latest in 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 can benefit from unrestricted access to image information available in the facility's PACS network. This eliminates the need for an additional DICOM viewing workstation or monitor. Ziehm NetPort also supports DICOM Multiframe Class, allowing the transfer of dynamic image sequences to and from the operating room.

    Ziehm Imaging provides cost-effective access to DICOM modalities with 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
