Ziehm was recognized for innovative new products and for opening mobile C-arm technology into emerging markets

Ziehm Imaging Named Mobile Interventional X-ray Company of the Year by Frost & Sullivan

November 2, 2017 — Based on its recent analysis of the mobile interventional X-ray solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recently recognized Ziehm Imaging as the 2017 Global Company of the Year in mobile interventional X-ray solutions. The company was awarded for its success in proactively aligning its mobile C-arm systems product line with emerging needs in a fast-changing healthcare and medical imaging environment.

Interventional radiology enables surgeons and interventionalists to perform a range of minimally invasive and image-guided procedures across various therapeutic areas, including cardiac, vascular, endovascular, pain, trauma, urology, orthopedics, spine and neurology. These areas rely on various imaging modalities, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fixed interventional X-ray and mobile C-arms. Each modality has advantages and limitations and differs in its mode of operation, level of complexity, and price point.

CT, MRI and fixed interventional X-ray equipment still have limitations in the intraoperative setting, according to Ziehm Imaging. These include difficulties for an ideal interventional workflow model, limited maneuverability and portability, and the high cost of conventional solutions. Therefore, interventional radiology has a strong overall value proposition that revolves around safety, precision, clinical utility, cost reduction, and improved patient outcomes.

"The latest mobile C-arm solutions may open the way to far wider intraoperative imaging adoption in emerging and developed markets, which remain largely underserved by traditional solutions because of their high cost," said Srikanth Kompalli, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Ziehm Imaging focuses on enhancing the quality and safety of care by improving interventional workflows and generating efficiencies in the operating room (OR). The company's range of products and modular portfolio allow it to combine various value-added capabilities to enhance versatility, image quality, ease of use or portability in solutions tailored to individual customers and OR settings. The company's broad range of products allows versatile combinations with navigation systems from Brainlab, Stryker and Medtronic. The integration of fully digital, distortion-free imaging with navigation systems or computer-aided surgery increases OR efficiency.

Ziehm Imaging also has cooperation agreements and partnerships with Storz Medical AG, Richard Wolf, Brainlab, Stryker, Stille, Medtronic and several university hospitals. With these partnerships, Ziehm Imaging continues has developed enhanced 2-D and 3-D imaging and therapies such as the Ziehm NaviPort interface on the image-guided navigation, which connects Ziehm Vision RFD 3-D seamlessly with systems of navigation companies. This combination of intraoperative 3-D imaging and navigation systems enables clinicians to manage less-invasive approaches for shorter hospital stays and improved patient outcomes.

"Ziehm Imaging has successfully addressed the industry's unmet needs and has implemented best practices with its product breadth and scalability, and is the first company to introduce commercially the mobile flat-panel 3-D C-arm system and the fully motorized C-arm system," said Kompalli.
