Toshiba’s Spot Fluoroscopy Lowers Dose, Enhances Interventional Efficiency

Showcasing Infinix-i’s unconventional collimation technology at SIR

Toshiba Spot Fluoroscopy Society of Interventional Radiology Annual Meeting Infi

April 15, 2013 — Improving patient safety while offering clinicians a more complete picture during interventional procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. will showcase Spot Fluoroscopy for its Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems at this year’s Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) 2013 annual meeting.

Spot Fluoroscopy allows clinicians to observe a region of anatomy using live fluoroscopy while viewing the Last Image Hold (LIH) surrounding area, resulting in lower dose and a larger image display for quicker diagnoses.

“Spot Fluoroscopy changes visualization compared to conventional collimation with the ability to see inside and outside the region of interest in a single view,” said Allan Berthe, senior manager, Market Development, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “The technology enables greater efficiency and safer procedures with the ability to reduce dose to patients and clinicians.”
