Ziehm, BrainLAB extend alliance

Ziehm Imaging and BrainLAB have extended their development and marketing agreement for the integration of Ziehm's mobile 3D C-arms and BrainLAB's computer-assisted surgical systems (CAS). The new agreement extends the combination of CAS and C-arms from Europe to North America. The partnership goes back to 2002, when the two companies collaborated on the development of DICOM-based CAS on 2D fluoroscopic images. In 2007, the companies combined the Ziehm C-arm Vision2 Vario 3D with all mobile BrainLAB platforms for 3D intraoperative imaging in Europe. The Ziehm Vision2 Vario 3D allows surgeons to obtain a volumetric 3D data set and display sagittal, coronal, and axial views intraoperatively.
