Royal Philips (Philips) has launched the Philips Image Guided Therapy Mobile C-arm System 1000, named Zenition 10.

Zenition 10 is now commercially available and is the latest addition to the company’s Zenition mobile C-arm product line.

It uses Philips’ flat panel detector technology to enable low-cost treatment and improved patient outcomes.

The high-utilisation, high-image-quality mobile C-arm assists in expanding patient access to routine surgical care and minimally invasive procedures.

Philips Zenition 10 is designed to address high patient throughput by providing speed and efficiency. It also provides the flexibility to accommodate the requirements of trauma, orthopaedics and other areas of surgery to enhance utilisation.

Some of the main features of the system include enhanced C-arm manoeuvrability, personalised user profiles, application-specific protocols and improved image quality.

The application-specific protocols along with customisable presets ensure consistent image quality.

The user-friendly system supports a fast learning curve and reduces the time required for operating staff training. It also provides a dedicated low-dose paediatric mode for young patients.

Philips Image Guided Therapy Systems general manager Mark Stoffels said: “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.”

Zenition 10 also comes with an uninterruptible power supply which enables its movement from one operating room to another without rebooting the entire system.

The C-arm provides manoeuvrability for operating room staff to access target anatomies.

It is equipped with Philips BodySmart software that promotes dose efficiency and time-saving by automatically and precisely adapting the measuring field to the area of interest.

For images of patients with metal implants, Philips MetalSmart software automatically excludes metal artefacts to enhance image quality and dose efficiency.
