Toshiba to Feature Vascular X-ray, Infinix Line

Toshiba will introduce its low contrast-imaging feature (works-in-progress) available on all of Toshiba’s Infinix products. This new feature will allow soft tissue imaging in the angio suite. This technique was designed to help physicians provide better patient care by improving CT-like imaging at the point of treatment, as opposed to having to transfer a patient to a CT scanner.

Toshiba will also showcase its biplane, X-ray system the Infinix VF-i/BP. This system combines a versatile multi-axis floor mounted positioner that reportedly allows head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage without having to pan or pivot the table and a ceiling suspended omega C-arm, featuring variable iso-center to help simplify biplane positioning. This combination is said to allow unprecedented clinician access and anatomical coverage of the patient.

High-resolution imaging is achieved with two flat panel detectors, a 12-by-16-inch FPD on the multi-axis position and an 8-by-8-inch FPD on the ceiling suspended omega C-arm. According to the company, all of these features allow the maximum flexibility needed for complex vascular and neuro interventional procedures with high-resolution imaging at the lowest dose.
