Royal Philips Launches Zenition Mobile C-arm -

Royal Philips launched the Philips Zenition mobile C-arm imaging platform. Initial introduction will occur in the U.S., Austria, Germany and Switzerland in 1H19, with additional markets to follow. Zenition addresses challenges of increasing application of image-guided minimally invasive surgery (MIS). To help treat more patients at a lower cost, Zenition mobile C-arms can be moved smoothly among O.R.s and are designed to be easily positioned and used. The platform features a tablet-like user interface and "Unify" workflow so that once an operator has learned to use one system on the platform, he or she knows how to operate them all. Position Memory and BodySmart software reduce the need for C-arm repositioning by a reported 45%. Further, Philips' MetalSmart software automatically adjusts the contrast and brightness of images to improve image quality when metal objects such as implants are present, which is especially useful in orthopedic applications.
