During a lunch symposium on October 1st, Christoph Josten (University Hospital Leipzig), Christian Raftopoulos (Brussels Saint-Luc University Hospital) and Peter Vajkoczy (Charité Berlin) will talk about their imaging devices and clinical equipment ranging from mobile 3D C-arms to fix installed C-arms and intraoperative CT-scanners. An open discussion about interdisciplinary use, space requirements, Hybrid-OR, installation and running costs, image quality, ease-of-use, utilization of navigation and upcoming future developments will give insights on the latest innovations in intraoperative spinal imaging.
At its booth in the industry exhibition, Ziehm Imaging will present Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid Edition.
