With this generation, surgical workflows have been optimized through numerous improvements. These include, for example, the new ergonomic monitor trolley and the easy user interface. Also an intelligent algorithm automatically adjusts and optimizes the image quality. All systems are suitable for broad clinical applications: in orthopedics, trauma and neurosurgery as well as gastroenterology, vascular and cardiac surgery or in urology.
The new generation of the Arcadis C-arm family includes such systems as Varic, Avantic and Orbic (Orbic 3D) that have been successfully used in their initial version in hospitals around the world. These mobile C-arms of Siemens are based on syngo, an intuitively operated Siemens software platform that facilitates clinical workflows in many ways. For example, with syngo it is possible to view images from other modalities, store acquired images to archives or external storage media such as CD, DVD or USB and select up to 200 default examination programs. To continuously improve the clinical workflow, the user interface integrates a basic menu to accelerate system operation and an extended menu for more complex requirements. Different automatic image algorithms that regulate brightness, contrast and dose, provide the physician with optimal image quality.
System operation is further facilitated by an ergonomically optimized and easily manageable monitor trolley with monitor screens that can be adjusted in height and rotated by 180 degrees in the horizontal.
For surgical navigation, the physician is provided with innovative navigation technology.
The NaviLink interface is available for three-dimensional navigation and NaviVision for an integrated navigation platform. In this way, intraoperative images of the Arcadis system are combined with high-precision, surgical navigation systems.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
