February 13, 2015 — Shimadzu Medical Systems announced the first United States installation of its Trinias C-12 crossover system at First Coast Heart & Vascular Center in Jacksonville, Fla. This first North American installation of the Trinias angiographic system was completed by Shimadzu dealer/partner CMS Imaging of North Charleston, SC and began operation at the medical center in late January.
The Trinias 12 family of digital angiography systems (ceiling and floor mounts), which received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance in 2014, are designed as a crossover room to perform both vascular and/or cardiac interventional examinations. At First Coast Heart & Vascular Center, the ceiling mounted Trinias C-12 has been equipped with a 58-inch Eizo 8MP display monitor and a Mennen Hemodynamic system.
Patient safety is at the forefront of the system, with seven radiation dose reduction features to produce high-quality images with a minimum of radiation dose exposure. Its Score Pro imaging processing technology enhances fluoroscopic images and provides multiple specialized functions to expedite exam procedures.
First Coast Heart & Vascular Center provides a wide range of cardiac services at eight facilities in three northeast Florida counties.
