For more than 25 years Atlantis Worldwide has been helping healthcare providers navigate the world of medical imagingIt’s always exciting when new technology, techniques or strategies are developed. We try to stay up-to-the-minute on the latest advances in technology and this month we’re excited about the launch of Philips Zenition, a new mobile C-Arm imaging platform.
What makes Philips Zenition exciting? It brings together innovations in image capture, image processing, ease-of-use and versatility pioneered on Philips’ Azurion platform. It has a tablet-like interface that runs the same Unify software across various versions of the Zenition. Hospitals will be able to maximize OR performance, enhance clinical capabilities and offer their staff an impressive high-quality user experience during orthopedic, trauma and vascular procedures.
The Zenition mobile C-Arms are easy to move between operating rooms and simple to position around the patient. They’re also intuitive to operate. Because it adapts to the needs of different types of surgery and different operators easily, it makes it more affordable to treat more patients.
In addition, once an operator has learned to use one system on the platform, it’s easy to operate them all. That means increased OR performance.
“The Philips Zenition is a user-friendly system that’s intuitive to use for both surgeons and nursing staff,” said Nikolaos Bonaros, associate professor of cardiac surgery at the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria. “Its simplified workflow means that we can convert a room from a conventional OR to a high-quality interventional room more quickly. At the same time the system provides high image quality at the level required for hybrid OR procedures.”
Zenition C-Arm systems incorporate the same image processing algorithms used on the Azurion platform for crisp, high quality image viewing. Philip’s MetalSmart software automatically adjust the contrast and brightness of the image when metal objects like implants are in the field of view. This makes the system ideal for orthopedics. It has two different detector and image intensifier options, plus the ability to subscribe to Philip’s Technology Maximizer program. Users get the latest software and hardware technology releases for significantly less than the cost of purchasing them individually.
The new Zenition C-Arm systems will be available in the U.S., Germany, Austria and Switzerland before midyear and will be rolled out in other markets later in 2019.
While it will be some time before the Philips Zenition C-Arm systems will be available in the refurbished or used medical imaging device markets, it’s still a very exciting development in the industry. If you’re in the market for medical imaging equipment, be sure to talk to an expert at Atlantis Worldwide to find out if the right solution for you is refurbished or used C-Arms.
