Mobile C-arm with new imaging system

An updated version of the mobile C-arm Siremobil Compact L.
Siemens Medical Solutions introduces an updated version of the mobile C-arm Siremobil Compact L. The system’s numerous improvements in design, image chain, and workflow integration provide for optimal clinical applications.

The improved user interface of the mobile C-arm Siremobil Compact L presents a comprehensive operating menu, self-explanatory keyboard commands and easy navigation via a window-based display. It allows the surgeon to preview, for example, already generated individual images or image series via a separate image bar, resulting in optimal orientation during surgical invasion.

The revised imaging system Memoskop enables Siremobil Compact L to store up to 5000 images. The images can be sent via DICOM to a hospital network or burnt to a CD. For excellent image quality, Siremobil Compact L is equipped with a new 1k image matrix for image processing, display, and image communication.

In addition, the new color coding of the mechanical handles as well as brakes and graduation at the system provide the operating personnel with improved and easily learned operation. The low weight of the Siremobil Compact L allows for easy manoeuvrability and positioning. The system is equipped with either an 18 cm (7 inch) or 23 cm (9 inch) image intensifier, a generator power of 1.4 kW and brilliant, high-contrast flat screens (with a screen diagonal of up to 18 inches).
