Siemens Healthineers received FDA clearance for its Cios Spin Mobile 3D C-Arm for orthopedic, trauma and spine surgery.

Here are three things to know:

1. Cios Spin is designed to support both 2D and 3D imaging for a variety of procedures, including vascular imaging. The system's NaviLink 3D digital navigation provides connectivity to surgical navigation.

2. The system features flat panel detector technology and offers a range of optional software packages. The Easy 3D package is designed to enable efficient setup and image acquisition, and the Screw Scout package enables system software to recognize and automatically label screws in a 3D X-ray image.

3. Cios Spin is the first commercially available mobile C-arm with an antimicrobial coating.

According to Vice President of Surgical Solutions at Siemens Healthineers North America Robert Dewey, "This system will help our customers improve the quality of patient care using precision medicine as well as reduce the additional costs imposed by revision surgery."
