December 15, 2014As the first integration between Interventional Radiology (IR) and CT technology, Toshiba’s Infinix 4-D CT provides clinicians with faster, safer and more accurate interventions. 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.

The Infinix 4-D CT maximizes the full potential of IR and CT systems to deliver real-time CT images during interventions instead of CT-like images. The system significantly improves workflow with its Sure Guidance technology (pending 510(k) clearance) that allows for automatic transition between modalities. 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 introduced the Infinix 4-D CT at RSNA 2014. Currently the system has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance with the Infinix Elite and Aquilion One Vision Edition configuration. It is pending 510(k) clearance for use with the Aquilion Prime CT system.
