At the forefront of innovative, mobile, surgical C-arm design.


By eliminating the need for a monitor cart in the surgical suite, the Ziehm Quantum™ is truly the world’s first full featured, self contained mobile surgical C-arm. Its compact foot print and lightweight design coupled with the advanced features of a state-of-the-art 16-bit image processing system, makes the Ziehm Quantum™ the most compact and versatile mobile C-arm available today.
Excellent Image Quality

Image quality is clearly the most important feature of any mobile C-arm. The Ziehm Quantum™ features a 1K² x 12bit video/image display, digital image rotation, large storage capacity (up to 10,000) images), and integrated 18.1” high resolution TFT monitors capable of displaying 1,024 shades of gray. The Ziehm Quantum™ provides superior resolution and detailed visualization in all applications.

The Anatomical Programs found in every Ziehm Quantum™ C-arm optimize image quality for each body region using the lowest possible dose. Choose between the ‘Bone/Extremities’ ‘Pelvic/Spine’, and ‘Heart/Thorax’ Anatomical Programs to ensure superb image quality in each type of procedure. In addition, unique ‘Metal’ and ‘LPD’ (Large Patient Diameter Key) image programs further enhance image quality in otherwise difficult imaging conditions.

Sparing Use of Dose
Wherever you look at the Ziehm Quantum™, you will find features that can significantly reduce dose to the patient, physician and personnel within the operating room. Ziehm Imaging has been the industry’s low dose leader since Ziehm pioneered the integration of high frequency generators into mobile fluoroscopic C-arms.

In addition, the following features ensure that the Ziehm Quantum™ is one of the most patient friendly and dose sparing mobile fluoroscopy systems available. • Digital image rotation and reversal without radiation • Programs for anatomically specific exposure techniques • Pulsed fluoroscopy with last image hold • Patient dose recording • Half-dose mode • Laser cross-hair positioning and centering • Large Patient Diameter Key

Ziehm Vision Vario 3D
Innovative Key Technology.

The Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D combines excellent 2D-image quality with a highly efficient intraoperative 3D imaging module. Intraoperative 3D imaging plays a vital role especially in spine procedures as well as in orthopedic and maxillofacial surgery. This is often beneficially combined with Computer-Aided Surgery (CAS) systems. The C-arm’s intelligent and compact design together with its unmatched ease of use benefit both surgeons and operation staff.
Superior Image Quality and 3D Reconstruction At Its Best

Clear View

Running in pulse mode at up to 30 frames/s, the Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D produces sharp and crystal clear images. The unique 1k² imaging system with its industry-leading high-dynamic range CCD camera enables a detail-rich visualization of even the finest anatomical structures.

Object Detected Dose Control – ODDC

The innovative ODDC (Object Detected Dose Control) software provides image optimization and motion detection in real time at the lowest possible dose. Pulse rates and frame averaging filters adjust to the amount of motion present in subject anatomy.
ODDC also allows Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D to ensure excellent image quality, even under adverse conditions. ODDC adjusts fluoro techniques to properly visualize anatomy even at the periphery of the field of view. When metal instruments and implants are introduced into the field of view, ODDC will automatically correct for any tendency a lesser imaging chain might have to over-penetrate the surrounding anatomy.

The Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D rounds out its capabilities by adding a highly efficient intraoperative 3D imaging module. The powerful 3D functionalities of the Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D are an invaluable help when it comes to checking the accurate placement of implants, screws and osteosynthetic material. They also provide considerably enhanced precision in orthopedic fracture reductions and joint surface reconstructions in comparison to 2D imaging. Intraoperative 3D imaging with the Ziehm Vision² Vario 3D provides a previously unknown degree of interventional safety at an impressive quality level and may reduce both the number of revision interventions and radiological follow-up examinations through full postoperative visual control in the OR.

As opposed to conventional image intensifiers, the flat-panel detector provides distortion-free imaging with a contrast range previously unseen on mobile fluoroscopy systems for leading-edge image quality. Additionally, the Ziehm Vision² FD Vario 3D’s image processing chain is completely insensitive to strong magnetic fields, giving the user previously unknown freedom as to the site of operation of the unit.
The combination of fully-digital, distortion-free imaging with navigation systems or Computer-Assisted Surgery (CAS) makes the Ziehm Vision² FD Vario 3D an ideal choice for advanced imaging applications for instance in the field of neurosurgery.

3D reconstruction at its best

The Ziehm Vision² FD Vario 3D rounds out its isocentric capabilities of the Ziehm Vision² FD Vario by adding a highly efficient intraoperative 3D imaging module.

Virtually Isocentric

Smart virtual mechanics

On both Vision² FD Vario models, a region of interest (ROI) that has been set once will stay in the image center during the entire isocentric image acquisition cycle. Thus your everyday clinical workflow is streamlined, while at the same time the dose exposure of operating room staff and patients is significantly reduced.

Compact design

Thanks to their sophisticated mechanical construction, our Vision² FD Vario units have the compact footprint as conventional C-arms, in spite of their added isocentric functionality. Thus you can continue to benefit from the superior mobility that is characteristic of Ziehm’s C-arms, even if your OR space is scarce.

Variable isocenter

The isocenter can be adjusted to different patient positions, and not vice versa. There is no need to spend time positioning the patient to the center of the c-arm.

Freely selectable flat panel detector/object distance

This feature ensures flexibility during image capture, a larger field of view and a lower dose to the patient, as the patient can be positioned close to the flat panel detector.

Isocentric cine loop

An isocentrically acquired image series can be replayed as a cine loop. This ‘iso loop’ conveys a 3D-like image impression, providing an easy and reliable way for the surgeon to assess the results of an intervention in many cases.
