Ziehm Vision RFD.


The ultimate C-arm to outperform

The treatment of cardiovascular disorders and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system calls for high performance in intraoperative imaging technologies. 

The Ziehm Vision RFD with a 20.5 cm x 20.5 cm flat-panel detector is ideally suited for such complex procedures. Building on more than ten years of experience in flat-panel detectors, this C-arm now features the latest CMOS FD technology for excellent image quality.

The Ziehm Vision RFD can also be equipped with a 30 cm x 30 cm flat-panel detector. This is the preferred model for highly demanding orthopedic, trauma or cardiovascular interventions that require more information in one image. Thanks to its larger field of view, all relevant information can be displayed in one single image. The C-arm is based on proven a-Si technology for great imaging quality.

Both systems are equipped with a powerful generator that penetrates even dense anatomy. In addition, Advanced Active Cooling facilitates long and demanding procedures and an intuitive operating concept helps surgeons to ensure consistently high clinical standards. This impressive feature lineup makes the Ziehm Vision RFD perfect for challenging interventions.

The system Ziehm Vision RFD in the 20.5 cm x 20.5 cm version is now available in the CMOSline1,2 premium edition. All CMOSline systems come with a Ziehm Imaging CMOS detector and the groundbreaking dose reduction technology Beam Filtration3. This combination allows for excellent image quality with a lower dose.

1 CMOSline represents a system configuration that is based on a Ziehm Imaging CMOS flat-panel detector.
2 This product/feature might not be commercially available in all countries. Due to regulatory reasons their future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact Ziehm Imaging for detailed information.
3 The technology Beam Filtration reduces dose exposure for all CMOSline systems in comparison to conventional filtration techniques (Status before September 2017). Data on File. Results may vary.
4 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.
