"We are extremely proud to be presented with a Stevie Award for the third year in a row. This prestigious prize validates our product concept and is a great recognition of our innovation leadership", says Klaus Hörndler, CEO of Ziehm Imaging. "We have developed Ziehm Vision RFD 3D by leveraging our 10 years' experience in 3D imaging. The result is a completely new 3D C-arm modality that allows for full intraoperative control at any time during the intervention."

The future of 3D imaging
Ziehm Vision RFD 3D has been designed based on the know-how and innovations originally developed for demanding hybrid applications. Ziehm Vision RFD 3D combines 2D and 3D functionality to offer full intraoperative control in high-end applications in orthopedics, traumatology and spine surgery. SmartScan, a patented concept, allows for 180° image information of even the smallest anatomical structures while keeping the geometry of a conventional 2D C-arm. With up to 7 cervical vertebrae in one scan volume, it offers the largest 3D image volume of a mobile C-arm in the market.

Ziehm Vision RFD 3D is 30% smaller than traditional 3D C-arms and up to 60% more lightweight than alternative mobile imaging solutions. This allows the OR staff to easily position the C-arm in the OR and to manually transport it from one OR to another.
