Xograph introduces wireless mobile X-ray C-arms
Xograph Imaging Systems, an independent radiology equipment supplier in the
UK and Ireland, has announced wireless network(WLAN) connectivity on its
Ziehm range of surgical imaging mobile C-arm image intensifiers.
The first Ziehm C-Arm with wireless network connectivity will be
delivered to The Borders General Hospital, Melrose, Scotland.
Ziehm mobile C-arms are designed for X-ray, video and digital imaging in
highly demanding, minimally invasive and interventional surgical procedures
in areas such as cardiology, urology, neurology and orthopaedics.
The WLAN technology provides a wireless connection between the Ziehm
mobile C-arm and a local area network (LAN) to increase workflow and
flexibility in the operating theatre.
Digital image data can now be fed directly over standard DICOM 3.0
protocol to and from RIS/PACS. Data transmission via WLAN reduces the time
to set the unit up and eliminates the need for cables in the already
confined space of an operating environment.
