October 13, 2016 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. announced it will be displaying a wide array of diagnostic imaging technologies at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 27-Dec. 2 in Chicago.
Offering interventional radiology labs an imaging system that provides clinicians flexibility to perform a wide array of procedures, Toshiba will introduce its newest C-arm at RSNA: the Infinix-i Sky+. The ceiling-mounted system, also known as the INFX-8000C 930A C-arm, features a double sliding C-arm that allows the C-arm to be positioned in more ways to help clinicians increase their coverage, speed and patient access. The new C-arm can deliver 3-D imaging anywhere for high-quality exams with 210 degrees of anatomical coverage on both sides of the patient and a high-speed 3-D rotation of 80 degrees per second. The Infinix-i Sky+ also incorporates an extensive set of automated and user-selectable dose management tools designed to help clinicians minimize X-ray exposure to patients and clinicians.
Toshiba will also display the Infinix 4-D CT, which seamlessly integrates interventional radiology (IR) and CT technology into one solution that may help clinicians to improve visualization and workflow, and prioritize patient safety during an array of interventional procedures. The system’s merging of the Infinix-i angiography system with the customer’s choice of either the Aquilion One ViSION Edition CT (computed tomography) or Aquilion Prime CT allows clinicians to efficiently plan, treat and verify in a single clinical setting. With the Infinix 4-D CT, clinicians can receive optimum image quality, as well as the precision and flexibility needed during intervention, in addition to a suite of dose management features like Toshiba’s AIDR (Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction) 3-D for simplified CT dose reduction and the Infinix’s Dose Tracking System, among many others.
Finally, Toshiba will showcase the Ultimax-i FPD multipurpose system at RSNA. The system enables its customers to perform complex procedures within a radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) room space. The multipurpose system enhances clinical versatility by providing routine radiography, urology, orthopedic and routine angiography lab capabilities within an RF room. As the industry’s only tilting C-arm multipurpose system, according to Toshiba, the Ultimax-i FPD offers a small footprint while increasing space for the operator and helps clinicians to improve patient access and safety by working around the patient.
