November 2, 2009 — Increasing the flexibility and diagnostic capabilities in bi-plane vascular X-ray imaging, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduces the all new Infinix VF-i/BP with large and mid-sized flat panel detectors. The large and mid-sized flat panel detectors provide clinicians with the ability to obtain critical variations in angle combinations while providing the necessary anatomical coverage, creating the optimal universal bi-plane vascular X-ray system for any clinical application.
The new Infinix VF-i/BP features Toshiba’s new mid-sized 12-inch by 12-inch flat panel detector on the lateral plane, combined with the large 12-inch by 16-inch flat panel detector on the frontal plane to allow clinicians additional and steeper angle combinations. The combination of the mid-sized and large detector panels makes this system the most flexible bi-plane vascular X-ray system available, according to the company.
The mid-sized, high-resolution 12-inch by 12-inch flat panel detector enables physicians to conduct a variety of bi-plane applications, allowing for steep, compound bi-plane projections. For example, during neurological exams, the mid-sized panel enables clinicians to image at different angles in order to obtain images that best illustrate the pathology. The long field-of-view of the large panel makes it ideal for carotid interventions because it provides optimal coverage from proximal guiding catheter to distal safety device during carotid angioplasties.
The large 12-inch by 16-inch flat panel detector on the five-axis frontal plane can be utilized as a single plane in the imaging of large anatomical regions such as chest and abdomen, as well as peripherals. The five-axis C-arm provides noteworthy patient access and anatomical coverage for a floor-mounted C-arm.
Developed based on the popular Infinix-i series platform, the Infinix VF-i/BP is a floor-mounted frontal/ceiling-mounted lateral bi-plane system featuring multi-axis positioners with unique movement capabilities. These features allow physicians to complete procedures quickly and comfortably, reducing procedure times and improving overall departmental workflow.
