Dutch health technology major Royal Philips has launched the Philips Image Guided Therapy Mobile C-arm System 1000 – Zenition 10 to expand the company’s Zenition mobile C-arm series.

The Zenition 10, which is based on Philips’ flat panel detector technology, will help in expanding patient access to routine surgical care as well as minimally invasive procedures, said the company.

Available commercially, the latest addition to the Zenition mobile C-arm series is said to be cost-effective, has high utilisation, and generates high image quality. It enables surgeons to treat more patients at a reduced cost while enhancing patient outcomes.

According to Philips, Zenition 10 not only offers cost-effective imaging options for routine surgery but also the speed and efficiency to deal with high patient throughput. Besides, it helps in easing both operating room staff shortages and increasing healthcare costs.

The new product is flexible in nature to satisfy the needs of orthopaedics, trauma, and other areas of surgery for maximum utilisation, the health technology firm claimed.

It is said to have high C-arm manoeuvrability, application-specific protocols, and customised user profiles in addition to high image quality for improved patient outcomes.

Philips said that Zenition 10 is user-friendly, intuitive to operate, and offers a dedicated low-dose paediatric mode. Additionally, the platform supports a fast-learning curve and lowers the training time of operating staff.

Philips image guided therapy systems general manager Mark Stoffels said: “Philips Zenition mobile C-arms have long been recognized 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’s customisable presets and unique user profiles automatically adjust the system’s settings to match an individual’s preferences whenever they sign in.

Furthermore, it features an uninterruptible power supply for easy movement of the entire system without rebooting it.

The new mobile C-arm system has the Philips BodySmart software which eases dose efficiency by automatically adapting the measuring field to the area of interest. For enhancing image quality and dose efficiency for images of patients with metal implants, the system uses the Philips MetalSmart software.

Apart from that, Zenition 10 has a digital subtraction angiography capability that further improves the range of surgical procedures, the Dutch health technology major said.

Philips’ Zenition series also includes other C-arm systems like Zenition 50 and Zenition 70.
