New C-Arm for Wexford General

Cork University Hospital installed their first Ziehm Solo mobile C-Arm image intensifier from Xograph Healthcare in January 2011, they have been so impressed with its performance and versatility that they had no problems in recommending their choice to Wexford General Hospital whom after evaluation have just acquired their own Ziehm Solo C-Arm for general Fluoroscopy work in the Operating Theatres, replacing their existing system of 20 years.

The Ziehm Solo Mobile C-Arm is exclusively supplied in Ireland and the United Kingdom by the leading independent diagnostic imaging supplier Xograph Healthcare Ltd. The intuitive and user-friendly Ziehm Solo is available in three configurations; the system of choice for Wexford General Hospital is the space-saving all-in-one compact version, with the monitors ergonomically mounted onto the C-Arm and an articulating support arm negating the need for a separate monitor cart. Other variants of the Solo can incorporate the monitors on a more conventional type monitor cart and/or remotely mounted, for example on the ceiling.

Crona Carew, Radiology Services Manager at Wexford General Hospital, commented: “We were impressed with the service received from Xograph at Cork so we decided to source a C-Arm from them for Wexford General Hospital and needless to say they did not let us down. Ziehm mobile image intensifiers are very compact and easy to move; the touch screen is very intuitive and simple to use and the image quality is excellent, which is why we prefer to use them.”
