Toshiba’s Fluoroscopy Lowers Dose and Provides More Complete Picture

Flexible Collimation technology improves cardiovascular X-ray imaging

Spot Fluoroscopy RSNA 2012 Toshiba Angiongraphy System

December 6, 2012 — Giving clinicians a more complete picture while improving safety during interventional procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduces Spot Fluoroscopy for its Infinix-i angiography systems. Enabling quicker diagnoses and lower dose, clinicians can observe a target region of anatomy using Spot Fluoro’s live fluoroscopy while viewing the last image hold (LIH) surrounding area.

“Spot Fluoroscopy is like having an adjustable spot light over the reference LIH image, helping to reduce dose exposure and allowing the clinician to view the critical region of interest and the surrounding area at the same time,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “This unique type of unconventional collimation streamlines interventional procedures and reduces radiation exposure to both clinicians and patients, making exams safer for everyone involved.”

Spot Fluoroscopy was showcased at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 25 – 30, 2012.
