Versatile design meets proven C-arm technology

As hospital and surgery center ORs shrink and equipment density rises, demand for imaging systems with smaller footprints is growing.

With its all-in-one design, Ziehm Solo is one of the most compact and versatile C-arms for crowded treatment scenarios.

Equipped with state-of-the-art imaging technology, this C-arm delivers great performance for orthopedics, traumatology, pain management and other applications.

Single component design

Versatile solution for small operating rooms

Ziehm Solo is one of the smallest C-arms on the market.

As standard, Ziehm Solo comes with a 27″ high-brightness full HD monitor mounted on the C-arm, eliminating the need for a separate monitor cart. All functions required for image capturing, processing and archiving are integrated in the C-arm.

Its compact design and easy-drive system make Ziehm Solo ideal for even the smallest ORs.

Image quality

Best image quality. Minimized dose.

Ziehm Solo comes with a highly compact monoblock generator. It generates short, sharp pulses with up to 25 frames per second, producing crystal-clear images even if the patient is moving. This intelligent pulse technology also reduces dose levels.

The system provides a 1k x 1k resolution and more than 4,000 shades of gray to helps visualize even the smallest anatomical structures.

This comprehensive concept consists of a broad, clinically proven application portfolio to address the daily challenges of low dose and high image quality. With significant dose savings, Ziehm Imaging sets the benchmark in user-friendly adjustment of dose exposure1.

Laser positioning device

Integrated in flat-panel and generator housing for accurate and dose-free positioning of C-arm

Anatomical programs

With automatic optimization of dose and image quality for best results

Low dose mode

In all anatomical programs for particularly dose-sensitive procedures, e.g. in pediatrics

Reduction of pulse frequency

Manually or fully automatically to lower the accumulated dose


For exposure-free magnification of X-ray images

Virtual collimators

For exposure-free positioning of collimators

Object Detected Dose Control (ODDC)

To automatically analyze the area of interest and minimize dose while optimizing image quality2

Automatic adjustment

For large patients – with no additional increase in dose

1. In clinical practice, the use of SmartDose may reduce patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task. 2.
