November 12, 2020 -- Ziehm Imaging was founded in Nuremberg, Germany, in 1972 and specializes in the development, production, and global marketing of mobile x-ray-based imaging solutions (C-arms). The medical technology company, with its headquarters in Nuremberg, has international offices in Italy, France, Finland, Austria, Spain, the U.S., Brazil, Singapore, China, and Japan and is supported by a network of global distribution partners.
Ziehm Imaging consistently focuses on intraoperative imaging and innovative x-ray technologies through high investment in research and development. Every day, around 12% of all Ziehm Imaging employees dedicate their work and expertise to the research and development of new systems and clinical applications to enhance clinical benefits in daily clinic routines.
X-ray-based imaging at the highest stage
In 2006, Ziehm Imaging launched the first fully digital, mobile C-arm in the world -- with a flat-panel detector that provides distortion-free, high-contrast, and highly dynamic images with four times more shades of gray compared with analog image intensifiers. Today, more than 10 years later, Ziehm Imaging has enhanced the proven flat panel with complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), the latest detector technology for excellent image quality.
Further, Advanced Active Cooling technology ensures significantly longer fluoroscopy time with higher image quality during lengthy surgery and prevents overheating of the generator. The open interface Ziehm NaviPort allows a flexible integration of navigation systems by various manufacturers and enables the user to be up to date at any time.
Mobile x-ray-based imaging solutions from Ziehm Imaging are used in spine surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery, and further clinical applications. The digital C-arms are also used in interventional radiology and cardiology, and cardiac surgery. Physicians who perform complex surgical interventions have the prospect of a mobile imaging solution with the capabilities and features demanded by a fixed installed unit, with the added advantages of no installation costs and the flexibility of a mobile C-arm.
Ziehm Imaging has been a company of firsts. We are bold; we pursue new technologies long before they are established on the market. Our constant curiosity and forward thinking pay off. As an innovation leader, we are committed to our mission of setting new technology standards. We're "always ahead" in helping you meet your individual goals:
Versatile integration options
Ziehm Imaging's broad range of products allows versatile combinations with navigation systems from Brainlab, Stryker, Scopis, and Globus Medical. Physicians and patients benefit from higher precision and increased image quality, especially in complex interventional applications. Further, the combination of fully digital, distortion-free imaging with navigation systems or computer-aided surgery increases efficiency in the operating room. Due to intraoperative 3D imaging, the risk of a second surgery and the radiation exposure for the patient can be reduced to a minimum.
