Ziehm Imaging and the Navigation Division of Stryker Corporation announced a co-marketing agreement in which Stryker Navigation will promote Ziehm’s Vision RFD 3D C-arm for the specialties of neurosurgery, spine surgery, orthopaedic surgery and trauma surgery.
The Ziehm Vision RFD 3D is the world’s only 3D C-arm with a 30 cm x 30 cm flat-panel detector that combines 2D and 3D functionality in one device providing surgeons the ability to create 3D reconstructions in the operating room to ensure all implants have been optimally placed. The Ziehm Vision RFD 3D offers a 25 kW generator with an iterative reconstruction algorithm and patented SmartScan rotation to offer 180° image information of anatomical structures. With up to 7 vertebrae in one scan volume, it offers the largest 3D image volume in the market. The new C-arm delivers game-changing 3D imaging and is ideally suited for orthopaedics, traumatology and spinal surgery, but also for demanding cardiovascular hybrid applications. The Ziehm Vision RFD 3D can be utilized with surgical navigation products to facilitate the guidance of surgical instruments relative to a patient’s anatomy, improving visualization and precision during minimally invasive surgical interventions.
The agreement will enable Stryker, an industry leader in surgical navigation, and Ziehm Imaging, an industry leader in intraoperative imaging, to offer a turnkey surgical solution for customers seeking to acquire these innovative technologies.
“Stryker and Ziehm are driven to simplify the surgical workflow and enhance patient outcomes through broad-application, user-friendly technology,” said Derek Babin, Director of Marketing for Stryker Navigation. “We are excited to partner with Ziehm to provide integrated surgical solutions to our customers that will enhance the surgeon experience and streamline the purchasing process for hospitals.”
“Ziehm is eager to partner with Stryker to offer revolutionary solutions to our customers,” says Johnny Drake, Vice President of Sales at Ziehm Imaging. “The RFD 3D’s capability to produce both 2D and 3D images makes it a great solution for spine applications but also for interdisciplinary applications in vascular, cardiac, trauma and urology as well.”
