Ziehm Imaging now brings iterative reconstruction techniques, so far only known from CT imaging, to a mobile 3D C-arm. The in-house developed, hardware-based and specialized algorithm ZIR (Ziehm Iterative Reconstruction) minimizes fan and metal artifacts in 3D reconstructions. The result is a significantly more distinguishable anatomy, defined bone crests and optimum slice views in the coronal, axial, sagittal and individually adjustable planes.
Another new development ZAIP (Ziehm Adaptive Image Processing) enhances the image quality of all C-arms with flat-panel detector. ZAIP uses hardware-based filters and the latest algorithms for noise filtering, edge enhancement and dose optimization to achieve best results in intraoperative imaging.
ZIR and ZAIP adjust themselves fully automatically to anatomical conditions and regulate filter settings in real-time. The surgeon benefits from outstanding X-ray images, and the patient from successful surgical procedures.
