C-Arms have long offered physicians a level of visual support that makes once-unheard-of medical procedures practically commonplace.
Advancing technology is now bolstering C-Arms’ applicability in a broader range of surgeries and treatments. Improved mobility is chief among them. By “mobility,” we’re referring to the ability to move a C-Arm device from location to location within a medical setting as well as the ability to more precisely position the C-Arm.
Genoray’s ZEN-7000 and Philips’ Veradius Unity are two examples of C-Arms empowering today’s physicians. But there is a downside to such advancements: points of differentiation between all C-Arm models fade to a point where easily identifying the model best for your needs is difficult.
That’s why we put together articles such as this one — to help convey the differences between two leading machines: Genoray’s ZEN-7000 and Philips’ Veradius Unity.
Similarities Between the Genoray ZEN-7000 and Philips Veradius Unity
Genoray’s ZEN-7000 and Philips’ Veradius Unity aren’t twins. That said, the two share many similarities. They include:
- A 15 kW power rating for their X-ray tube anodes
- Free space, depth, horizontal and vertical travel, and reverse position (not identical but notably close)
- A 19-inch display monitor size
- Dose reduction capabilities
… and several others.
Differences Between the Genoray ZEN-7000 and Philips Veradius Unity
While the two machines include matching lists of items that medical practices can check off, though, they do also have some notable differences.
One is the stark difference in image capacity, with the ZEN-7000 able to handle four million images and the Philips Veradius Unity topping out at 20,000.
Another difference is their warranty, which is where every other C-Arm manufacturer stumbles against the ZEN-7000.
Genoray’s warranty covers parts for five years and labor for one year. Philips, meanwhile, offers 12 months. (For the Philips, there is no delineation between parts and labor for those 12 months.)
Your Choice for C-Arms
