SmartDose - Best image quality. Minimized dose.

Ziehm Imaging has incorporated SmartDose1 in the latest generation of mobile C-arms. There are several new enhancements to our comprehensive concept, which is now in its next generation. It allows the physician and staff to significantly reduce dose while optimizing image quality. SmartDose benefits both patients and staff alike. With significant dose savings, Ziehm Imaging sets the benchmark in userfriendly adjustment of dose exposure.


Minimizing dose while maintaining image quality is an important goal worldwide for surgeons, their staff and patients alike. At Ziehm Imaging, we understand this need and have developed new enhancements in our applications to support our customers as they work towards minimium dose and maximum image quality.

Our latest improvements in SmartDose help to display even the smallest details of challenging anatomical areas and reduce dose with intelligent pulse regulation and optimized anatomical programs.

This comprehesive concept consists of a broad, clinically proven application portfolio to answer daily challenges of low dose and high image quality.

Low dose mode²

Low-dose mode for pediatric and other dose-sensitive procedures, lowering dose to the patient in all anatomical programs.

Removable grid³

For pediatric and other dose-sensitive procedures to reduce dose.

Object Detected Dose Control (ODDC)

Automatically analyzes the area of interest to minimize dose and optimize image quality.

Reduction of pulse frequency

Pulse frequency from 1 to 25 p / s manually or automatically for lower accumulated dose.

Virtual collimators

For exposure-free positioning of collimators.


For exposure-free display of magnified X-ray image.

Laser positioning device³

Integrated in flat-panel / image intensifier and generator housing for accurate placement of C-arm without radiation.

Automatic adjustments

For obese patients with no additional dose increase.

1 In clinical practice, the use of SmartDose may reduce patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with   radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.

2 For the US, pediatric low dose features are available on the Ziehm Vision RFD, Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition and Ziehm Vision RFD 3D.

3 This features comes as an option, not standard.
