Dutch health technology company Royal Philips has introduced the latest addition to its Zenition mobile C-arm series, the Zenition 30 image-guided therapy mobile C-arm system 3000.

Mobile C-arms are X-ray systems that are used inside the operating room to obtain live image guidance during various procedures, including orthopaedic, trauma, spine, and other surgeries.

Philips said that its Zenition 30 system provides surgeons with enhanced control, and reduces dependency on support staff, empowering them to work more autonomously and independently.

Zenition 30 addresses the staff shortages, while its workflow-enhancing features and superior image quality allow surgeons to deliver high-quality care to more patients, said the company.

Philips image-guided therapy systems general manager Mark Stoffels said: “Based on our Zenition platform’s proven ease of use and workflow efficiency, the new Zenition 30 offers a unique combination of personalised control and image clarity to enhance the speed and accuracy of decision-making for a range of clinical procedures at a price point that meets today’s economic and business goals.”

According to the company, Zenition 30 features its new-generation flat detector technology, advanced imaging algorithms, and personalised user profiles, to deliver superior image quality, dose efficiency, and workflow customization.

The system automatically adjusts to the surgeon’s preferred settings and working patterns, resulting in fewer manual adjustments and more first-time-right imaging.

In addition to rapid set-up and protocol selection, Zenition 30 also provides surgeons with enhanced control over the C-arm positioning during surgical procedures, said Philips.

The medical technology company said that the independent usability studies involving clinicians with hands-on experience of the Zenition 30 in simulated environments, showed positive results.

In the studies, 95% of the surgeons said that the system enhanced their control and allowed them to work independently, while 84% said that the system’s personalised image quality profiles resulted in fewer images.

Furthermore, Philips said that Zenition 30 has been designed to have a 25% increased product lifetime and a refurbished program available, suitable for repair, refurbishment, and recycling.
