The Right Dose SMARTDOSE


Best Image Quality.
Minimized Dose

Save dose with the enhanced CMOS imaging chain – now available in our latest C-arms.


SmartDose: Comprehensive concept for dose reduction

Our latest improvements in SmartDose1 help to display even the smallest details of complex anatomical areas and reduce dose with intelligent pulse regulation and optimized anatomical programs.

With significant dose savings, Ziehm Imaging sets the benchmark in user-friendly adjustment of dose exposure, and the SmartDose concept has been incorporated in the current generation of mobile C-arms.

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

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

Intelligent, fast regulation of pulse
rate to lower the dose level


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


For exposure-free magnification
of X-ray images

Automatic adjustment

For large 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

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.
