Versatile design meets latest flat-panel technology

With its all-in-one design, the Ziehm Solo FD is one of the most compact C-arms on the market – now equipped with CMOSline flat-panel technology to perform a broad portfolio of applications.

Versatile viewing options and new dimensions in user friendliness offer maximum flexibility in the OR to support your clinical workflow.

With the latest improvements in dose regulations, the Ziehm Solo FD ensures best image quality at a minimized dose.

CMOS flat-panel technology

Achieve significantly more details

Image quality and efficiency are the most important but also challenging factors in daily clinical routine.

In comparison with conventional C-arms, the latest flat-panel technology CMOS achieves higher spatial resolution due to smaller pixel sizes combined with lower noise levels and a higher read-out speed at full resolution.

True resolution, especially in the magnification modes, makes interpolation unnecessary. CMOS technology therefore enables improved overall efficiency.

Versatile & compact design

Ensure maximum flexibility

The Ziehm Solo FD is one of the smallest C-arms on the market. It comes as standard with a high-contrast 19″ DUO monitor mounted on an articulating monitor arm, eliminating the need for a separate monitor cart.

Despite the compact design, 165° of orbital movement enhances easy patient coverage and ensures a maximum of flexibility in the OR — fully counter-balanced in every position.

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

Removable grid

To reduce dose in pediatric and other dose-sensitive procedures

Reduction of pulse frequency

Manually or fully automatically to lower the accumulated dose

High-speed ADR

For intelligent, fast regulation of pulse rate to lower the dose level


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


To display fast-moving objects like guide wires and even the smallest vessels in razor-sharp image quality

Automatic adjustment

For large patients – with no additional increase in dose

Beam filtration

For reduced skin entrance dose without compromising on image quality3

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. Gosch D. et al. “Influence of grid and ODDC on radiation exposure and image quality using mobile C-arms – First results”, RöFo, 09/07. 3. The technology Beam Filtration reduces dose exposure for all CMOSline systems in comparison to conventional filtration techniques (Status before September 2017). Data on file. Results may vary.
