Ziehm Vision FD

Compact all-rounder with
CMOS flat panel technology

Amazing image quality
and low radiation dose

Setting the new benchmark

Stunning Ziehm CMOSLine flat panel


Active liquid cooling for
extended performance
Ziehm CMOS Flat Panel. Unsurpassed Performance

Ziehm’s sparkling new CMOS Flat Panel Detector (FPD) takes centre stage in the design of the all-new Ziehm Vision FD. The 2k x 2k image matrix doubles the benchmark of 1k x 1k for mobile C-arms and the 20.5 x 20.5 cm imaging area provides square images with 21% more coverage of anatomy when compared with a typical 23cm image intensifier. 

The auto-calibrating CMOS detector’s 100 µm pixel pitch enables approximately double the image quality with a similar dose compared to an image intensifier or similar image quality with approximately half the radiation dose. This provides the versatility to adapt instantly to the procedural demands and patient consideration, and makes the Ziehm Vision FD especially child-friendly where minimum dose and ultimate image detail in small anatomy are priority considerations.

The CMOS flat panel detector’s greater dynamic range enables the user to view more than 65,500 shades of grey in the image compared to a little over 4,000 with an image intensifier. This allows a much greater range of tissue information to be visualised on the same image.

Ziehm Vision FD; best for...

The Ziehm Vision FD is a great all-rounder for general purpose fluoroscopy and some vascular imaging thanks to Ziehm's unique advanced active liquid cooling system which provides near limitless fluoroscopy time. The Ziehm Vision FD would be ideal for, but not limited to, the following applications:

· General Orthopaedics · Spine Imaging (2D)
· Peripheral Vascular Studies · Urology
· Pain Management · Pacing Wire Insertion
· Speech & Language (SALT) · Paediatrics

Cine record and replay ('loop') is included as standard and Ziehm's advanced and workflow-optimised 'SmartVascular' software package can also be specified. A massive 100,000 image onboard storage capacity is provided.

A Ziehm Mobile C-arm Grows with Your Needs

With a Ziehm mobile C-arm, system expandability is always available to you simply by adding either a software or hardware option such as a Ziehm Remote Vision Centre remote control (1). This duplicated touchscreen user-interface can be positioning on the side of a procedural table, on a mobile cart or even in an operator area and synchronises with the Vision Centre on the Ziehm Vision FD mobile C-arm and on the Ziehm Vision FD monitor cart, Ziehm are also the first mobile C-arm company to bring wireless monitors (2) to the operating theatre environment. providing the convenience of additional imaging displays that can be ceiling- or wall-mounted, the high speed transmission gives real time replication of the images displayed on the Ziehm Mobile C-arm.
Network Connectivity

Ziehm C-arms can be specified with all the necessary tools to ensure that they are the most connected mobile C-arms available. Connectivity options include:

· DICOM 3.0 conformance
· HIS/RIS/PACS connectivity (cabled)
· HIS/RIS/PACS connectivity (wireless)
· DAP meter dose data to RIS/PACS
· Dose Server connectivity
· Remote intraoperative audiovisual consultation / presentation in real time ('Z-Conference')
Sterility, Hygiene and Infection Control

Most disinfectant wipes can be used on Ziehm mobile C-arms and each unit is supplied with a starter pack of bespoke Ziehm sterile covers that are tailored to each model and cover the flat panel detector assembly, the X-ray generator assembly, the C-arm assembly and the foot-switch. Manufactured from a clear material, laser targeting devices are still effective and viewable. These covers maintain sterility during operating procedures and also reduce the possibility of contamination of the mobile C-arm with body fluids and thereby aid infection control and reduce the cleaning burden. Individual covers are also available just for the flat panel detector and for the optional remote Vision Centre touchscreen user-interface. Additional packs of cover sets are readily available to order when required.
First Class Service: Physical and Remote

As well as first class Xograph service support being available to our mobile C-arm users, Ziehm Imaging also now offer a secure remote service option* direct to you mobile C-arm allowing system log file interrogation, software updates and more. This in turn allows system issue diagnosis in certain cases and this information can be passed to an Xograph field service technician who will arrive on site with the appropriate recommended replacement parts where applicable.

*Subject to local IT access policies.
Fit for the Future

As well as a number of valuable hardware add-ons the Ziehm Vision FD’s Vision Centre touchscreen user-interface has an open, modular software architecture ensuring maximum versatility. This interface can be easily upgraded and expanded with additional software modules without the need for hardware changes. The USB port not only allows export in a number of image formats including DICOM, but also allows fast update and upgrade. Latest Ziehm integrated secure and professional cyber-security satisfies the demands of the most vigilant IT departments.
Routes to Ownership

As well as direct purchase, Ziehm mobile C-arms are available via most Framework Agreement Contracts including NHS Supply Chain (UK), NHS Health Scotland and HSE (Ireland). In addition, finance can be arranged through a specialist medical finance third party and for those looking for a temporary solution, rental of a Ziehm C-arm may be possible.
