Vendors have been employing iterative reconstruction algorithms to dramatically reduce CT dose, and Ziehm said it is bringing the concept to mobile C-arms. The company has developed a specialized algorithm, Ziehm Iterative Reconstruction (ZIR), that minimizes fan and metal artifacts in 3D reconstructions of x-ray studies. A lower incidence of artifacts leads to more distinguishable anatomy, well-defined bone crests, and optimum slice views in various planes.
Ziehm Adaptive Image Processing (ZAIP) filters noise, enhances edges, and optimizes doses for its flat-panel detector C-arms designed for operating room (OR) use.
Ziehm will also feature a package solution for hybrid ORs; the company is offering OR tables from Stille, a manufacturer of carbon fiber interventional imaging tables, to complement its Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition.
