NUREMBURG, Germany, February 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ziehm Imaging has received Frost & Sullivan's European Product Leadership Award 2011 in the interventional radiology category. The Ziehm Vision RFD mobile C-arm ranked strongly in all assessment categories and led the field in terms of functionality, innovation, market acceptance, customer value and quality. The use of high-resolution, distortion-free flat-panel technology during operations has raised the bar in the clinical field and has paved the way for procedures that were previously only possible with fixed systems.
In light of the growing popularity of minimally invasive cardio-vascular procedures, the decision from Frost & Sullivan analysts underscores the increasing value of mobile C-arms in hybrid operating rooms. Ziehm Vision RFD delivers optimum image quality during complex interventions over an almost unlimited period of time. Not only does the C-arm have the advantage of flexibility and mobility, it also significantly lowers the investment cost typically required for a fixed system in a hybrid OR.
The European Product Leadership Award 2011 is the fourth prize that Ziehm Imaging has received from Frost & Sullivan. The company received awards in several categories in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
