January 27, 2012 — Arizona Heart has chosen Ziehm digital flat-panel C-arms for its three advanced technology suites. The Ziehm Vision RFD hybrid edition delivers distortion-free, high-resolution images for interventional procedures, and represents a cost-efficient alternative solution to fixed installed systems. Twelve ceiling-mounted monitors from Ziehm Imaging guarantee for ideal visualization in the operating room (OR).
Grayson H. Wheatley III, M.D., at Arizona Heart performs an increasing number of hybrid procedures. These less-invasive interventions speed up patient recovery and minimize pain, while treating complex problems. "Without imaging, we would not be able to successfully treat many critically ill patients. The Ziehm C-arm is often used for complex cases that can take hours. Its image quality is comparable with many fixed imaging systems," said Wheatley. "A reliable imaging solution is critical since we do not want to worry about the C-arm shutting down because of overheating when treating the patient."
The Ziehm Vision RFD is tailored to hybrid OR use criteria. With up to 25 images per second, its powerful monoblock generator also produces high-quality X-rays of moving objects such as beating hearts.
