  • Expect More. Fixed room performance in a mobile solution.

    Get the full picture

    Ziehm Vision RFD raises the bar in mobile imaging. Traditionally, only fixed interventional suites provided a wide field of view. Now that same range can be found in a mobile suite thanks to the 30 cm x 30 cm flat panel detector. The square shape of the flat-panel increases the field of view almost 1.5 times compared to a conventional 12" image intensifier expanding the clinical data captured.

    Distortion-free imaging

    Historically only fixed interventional suites offered distortion-free imaging. This limitation has changed with the Ziehm Vision RFD. Its exceptional precision makes this mobile interventional suite ideal for challenging procedures such as endovascular and interventional cardiac surgery. The Ziehm Vision RFD brings exceptional precision to mobile interventional procedures, eliminating distortion found with I.I. systems.

    More detail, more anatomy

  • • More than 16,000 shades of gray for greater contrast
  • • Expanded dynamic range: 72 dB
  • • Improved vessel resolution and soft tissue definition
  • • 1.5k x 1.5k image matrix

  • Innovative technology. Premium components provide the highest image quality.

    Powerful generator for highest quality images

  • • Compact and powerful monoblock generator
  • • Rotating anode
  • • 4 ms – 50 ms high frequency pulse width
  • • Pulse up to 25 frames per second
  • • Delivers optimal images during endovascular and interventional cardiology procedures

  • Contrast-rich display

  • • Two 18" TFT monitors
  • • High range of contrast and brightness
  • • Optimal viewing from any angle

  • Automatic adjustment. ODDC enables superior image quality while systematically reducing dose levels.

    Anatomical positioning

  • • Object Detected Dose Control (ODDC) is a grid of 2562 individual cells that continuously scans the region of interest to ensure good image quality independent of patient positioning.
  • • ODDC adjusts dose levels, noise filters and pulse rate to minimize radiation while maximizing image quality.

  • Real-time motion detection

    ODDC's measurement cells automatically detect motion. If the patient is not moving, the pulse frequency can be lowered significantly. If, however, motion is detected in the region of interest, the pulse frequency automatically increases to a maximum of 25 frames per second.

    Automatic metal correction

    ODDC automatically detects metal in the field and adjusts output and video levels to reduce over-penetration of metallic devices and improve image sharpness.

    Ease of Use. Intuitive usability provides improved clinical workflows.

    Best image quality for demanding interventions

    Ziehm Vision RFD has been engineered for the highest levels of flexibility. Distortion-free imaging and a high dynamic range make it the mobile interventional suite of choice for even the most challenging of interventions. It delivers excellent, high-precision results in interventional radiology, neurosurgery, vascular and cardiac surgery and interventional procedures, including Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), Percutaneus Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) and hybrid room applications like aortic heart valve implantation.

    Wide range of applications

    Ziehm Vision RFD provides superb image quality in all standard applications like orthopedics, trauma surgery, spine or neurosurgery. (Image 1)

    Vascular surgery

    The high dynamic range and the clear resolution of Ziehm Vision RFD enable the visualization of even the smallest vessels. Special tailored vascular packages and settings help to provide superb image quality in all vascular procedures. (Image 2)

    Interventional radiology, cardiology and hybrid room applications

    Short, powerful pulses in combination with the high dynamic range of the flat-panel detector enable superior visualization of moving objects as needed in cardiac procedures, previously not available on a mobile unit. The Advanced Active Cooling System ensures extended performance even in lengthy or back-to-back procedures. (Image 3)

    The complete solution. Bringing you the best of both worlds.

    With Ziehm Vision RFD, Ziehm Imaging sets a new benchmark for C-arm functionality. Not only is this the first system to bring fixed room image quality to the mobile world. It also bundles the full range of mobility benefits into an exceptionally compact footprint, outperforming even hybrid rooms in terms of flexibility and maneuverability. In addition, it is extremely easy to deploy. Unlike fixed system installations, Ziehm Vision RFD is up and running in the shortest possible time.
