March 20, 2009 - Ziehm Imaging launched at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna the new, compact Ziehm Solo C-arm, which is designed to meet the needs of pain management and orthopedic imaging as well as trauma and spine surgery.

This new C-arm produces high-quality images while requiring minimal OR space. The system provides flexible image display options and exceptional flexibility in connecting to existing OR monitors. The unit is sold at a reportedly “attractive price point,” and targets hospitals with limited budgets.

The space in the OR's sterile field is not only limited, but also in increasing demand as more and more devices are continually brought into this space. Ziehm Imaging responded to the requirements of small ORs by designing a system that occupies minimal space while providing optimal image processing and display. The CCD Camera can produce more than 4,000 gray scales. The optionally integrated metal correction program limits the over-exposure of a fluoroscopic image often caused by metal implants by recognizing metal objects (i.e. screws, plates, implants and instrumentation) in the field of view and adapting generator output accordingly. This is another way dose to the patient and OR staff may be reduced.

Ziehm Solo is available in three basic configurations. The most space-saving version functions without a separate workstation by providing C-arm mounted monitors on an articulating support arm. Since the C-arm supports standard video signals, existing external displays may be used as an alternative. This system may be seamlessly integrated into the existing infrastructure of the clinic by using existing ceiling-mounted or wall-mounted monitors for fluoroscopic display, eliminating the need for an additional monitor trolley. Wherever necessary, the C-arm may also be outfitted with an additional Ziehm Viewing Station. This combination provides any facility with the advantage of a custom set-up according to their needs.
