March 13, 2015 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Infinix 4DCT provides clinicians with faster, safer and more accurate interventions. Combining interventional radiology (IR) and computed tomography (CT), healthcare providers can plan, treat and verify in a single clinical setting for better patient care – rather than transferring patients between departments, risking infection and dragging out procedure times.

Toshiba’s Infinix 4DCT maximizes the full potential of IR and CT systems to deliver real-time CT images during interventions instead of CT-like images. The system improves workflow with its SUREGuidance technology (pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance) that allows for seamless and automatic transition between modalities. And, it is capable of saving hours by allowing clinicians to perform CT and interventional procedures within the same room and verify treatment success immediately after procedures.

Clinically, the system improves workflow of oncology and cardiac procedures. It provides interventionalists with CT images of liver tumors and produces more precise views of the heart and stent placements. Clinicians can also adjust the procedure with real-time studies instead of relying on CT images taken at an earlier time.

Toshiba exhibited the Infinix 4DCT at the 2015 Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting in Atlanta, Feb. 28 – Mar. 5. The system is FDA cleared with the Infinix Elite and Aquilion One Vision Edition.
