Ziehm Vision RFD 3D: Revolution in 3D imaging

Ziehm Vision RFD 3D is the world’s only 3D C-arm with flat-panel technology that provides a 16 cm edge length per scan volume combines 2D and 3D functionality to offer maximum intraoperative control.

Available with 30 cm x30 cm and 20 cm x 20 cm flat-panels, the new Ziehm flagship system is ideally suited for orthopedics, traumatology and spine surgery, but also for demanding cardio-vascular hybrid applications.

Redefined imaging

Based on know-how and innovations originally developed for demanding hybrid applications, Ziehm Imaging has designed a completely new 3D C-arm: Ziehm Vision RFD 3D. Validated in leading clinical centers in the US and Germany, it is the only 3D C-arm that combines 25 kW generator with iterative reconstruction algorithm and patented SmartScan rotation to offer 180° image information of any anatomical structure.

With up to 7 vertebrae in one scan volume, it offers the largest 3D image volume in the market. For 2D imaging in daily routine the small footprint of less than 0.8 m² sets the benchmark in space requirements. 30% smaller than fixed C-arms and 60% lighter than mobile CTs, the system can easily be positioned during all kinds of procedures and effortlessly be moved from one OR to another.

Turning ORs into Hybrid Rooms

Fully motorized in four axes, Ziehm Vision RFD 3D is ideally suited for hybrid room applications. The C-arm features a joystick module with a function for defining an isocenter around which the system moves concentrically. Distance control, an assistance system supporting non-contact collision protection, allows for enhanced patient safety: The C-arm movement slows down in the proximity of the patient and stops before entering a defined safety zone.

The 25 kW generator is one of the most powerful in the market of mobile imaging and delivers crystal-clear images. The liquid cooling system (Advanced Active Cooling) keeps the generator at a consistent operating temperature and ensures reliable imaging without interruption even during lengthy procedures.

The specially developed algorithm ZIR (Ziehm Iterative Reconstruction) optimally minimizes fan and metal artifacts in 3D reconstructions, leading to significantly more distinguishable anatomy.
