Philips has announced the launch of Zenition 10, a new addition to the company’s Zenition mobile C-arm series. Based on Philips’ flat panel detector technology, Zenition 10 helps to expand patient access to routine surgical care and minimally invasive procedures. Now commercially available, the high-image-quality mobile C-arm enables surgeons to treat more patients at a lower cost while helping improve patient outcomes, the company has said in a press release
“Philips Zenition mobile C-arms have long been recognised for their high-quality imaging and efficiency-enhancing performance. With the introduction of Zenition 10, we are making those benefits available on a C-arm that meets the wide-ranging needs of routine open and minimally invasive surgery, allowing more patients in more parts of the world to receive the high-quality care,” said Mark Stoffels, general manager, Image Guided Therapy Systems at Philips.
To help alleviate operating room staff shortages and rising healthcare costs, Philips Zenition 10 provides a cost-effective imaging solution for routine surgery, delivers the speed and efficiency needed to deal with high patient throughput, while being flexible enough to meet the needs of orthopaedics, trauma, and other areas of surgery to maximise utilisation. It comes with exceptional C-arm manoeuverability, application-specific protocols, and personalised user profiles.
Consistent image quality is facilitated by application-specific protocols, customisable presets, and unique user profiles that automatically adjust Zenition 10 settings to suit an individual user’s preferences whenever they log in. An uninterruptible power supply allows the unit to be moved from one operating room to another without the need to reboot the entire system, and its C-arm geometry provides the manoeuverability needed for operating room staff to access target anatomies. Philips BodySmart facilitates dose efficiency by automatically adapting the measuring field to the area of interest.
For images of patients with metal implants, Philips MetalSmart software automatically enhances image quality and dose efficiency, and a dedicated paediatric mode automatically reduces dose rates for young patients. The system’s digital subtraction angiography capability further enhances the range of surgical procedures facilitated by the Zenition 10, allowing clear imaging of vasculatures.
