Don’t let its power fool you: this Siemens’ Arcadis Orbic 3D/Orbic C-Arm is as maneuverable as it is mighty. It features:
- A counterbalanced, isocentric design to help with fast and precise positioning
- 190° orbital rotation with virtually unlimited projection possibilities
- A trolley that is ergonomic, lightweight, and compact
Fortunately, Genoray’s ZEN-7000 can handle the heat of competition. Literally. It has a rotating tube that allows for higher X-ray output — while also making it possible to use for longer periods thanks to overheating protection technology.
Both machines offer medical practices looking for new C-Arms a lot. For a convenient overview that breaks down their similarities and differences, keep reading.
The C-Arm itself shares many similarities between the two models, including:
- Free space (cm/in): 78/30.7 to 78.59/31
- Depth (cm/in): 73/28.7 to 72/28.35
- Horizontal travel (cm/in): 20/7.9 to 19.99/7.87
- Reverse position available on both
- Power requirements of 120 volts
Both models also share the muscle required to perform significant procedures. The images also benefit from similar features, from enhancements and dose reduction to digital image intensifiers.
Image storage capacity is one of the notable areas in which the ZEN-7000 and Arcadis Orbic 3D/Orbic C-Arm differ. Where the former offers essentially a lifetime of image storage — four million — the latter can handle a maximum of 150,000. Both are big numbers, for sure, but practical lifetime storage alleviates one big concern of users.
Make that two big concerns, because of the warranty difference between them, too. The ZEN-7000 comes with a best-in-class five years parts and one-year labor warranty. Consistent warranty information on Siemens’ Arcadis Orbic 3D/Orbic C-Arm is difficult to come by. That said, indications point to nothing more than one year.
