Ziehm Imaging's unique SmartDose concept1

The comprehensive concept consists of a broad, clinically proven application portfolio to address the daily challenges of low dose and high image quality. With significant dose savings, Ziehm Imaging sets the benchmark in user-friendly adjustment of dose exposure.

Laser positioning device

integrated in flat-panel and generator housing for accurate and dose-free positioning of C-arm

Reduction of pulse frequency

manually or fully automatically to lower the accumulated dose

Object detected dose control (ODDC)2

to automatically analyze the area of interest and minimize dose while optimizing image quality

Anatomical programs

with automatic optimization of dose and image quality for best results

High-speed ADR

for intelligent, fast regulation of pulse rate to lower the dose level

Zaip algorithm and filters

to display fast-moving objects like guide wires and even the smallest vessels in razor-sharp image quality

Low dose Mode

in all anatomical programs for particularly dose-sensitive procedures, e.g. in pediatrics

Premag

for exposure-free magnification of X-ray images

Automatic adjustment

for obese patients – with no additional increase in dose

Removable grid

to reduce dose in pediatric and other dose-sensitive procedures

Virtual collimators

for exposure-free positioning of collimators

Beam Filtration3

for reduced skin entrance dose without compromising on image quality

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 a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
