• Easy-to-use system helps make surgical interventions more efficient and patient-friendly

• Multidisciplinary functionality supports high-capacity utilization and economic efficiency

During the virtual 106th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 29 to Dec. 5, Siemens Healthineers introduces the Cios Flow1, a mobile C-arm designed to increase the ease and efficiency of everyday imaging workflows for surgical interventions. The Cios Flow can be used by multiple medical disciplines in the operating room (OR), including orthopedics, trauma surgery, spinal surgery, vascular surgery, and pain therapy. This wide range of applications helps ensure high-capacity system utilization, making the Cios Flow cost-effective. Additionally, its features are designed for easier and more efficient operation to help improve patient care in the OR.

The Cios Flow’s low weight, maneuverability, and intuitive touch-gesture interface simplify operation, even for new users. The new SpotAdapt2 function helps the user to visualize challenging anatomical areas. The user simply taps the anatomical area on the preview image of the Touch User Interface, and SpotAdapt automatically optimizes relevant imaging and post-processing parameters such as brightness and contrast.

Additionally, the Cios Flow offers security functions to help minimize cyberattacks targeting the system or patient data, as well as Access & User Management features to prevent unauthorized access and restrict sensitive data. Applications can now be whitelisted to ensure that the user can access only safe software from trusted sources. For additional protection against data theft, patient data can be encrypted using BitLocker, and any changes to the system can be tracked.

¹ The Cios Flow is pending 510(k) clearance and is not yet commercially available in the United States.

² SpotAdapt is pending 510(k) clearance and is not yet commercially available in the United States.
