Toshiba's New Biplane Flat Panel Detector Designed for Neuro Procedures

Toshiba's InfinixTM VF-i/BP is a biplane 12 x 12-inch flat panel detector.

May 18, 2009 – To increase workflow and optimize patient access during diagnostic and interventional neuro-vascular procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. its new biplane 12 x 12-inch flat panel detector system at the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) annual meeting in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, May 16-21, 2009 (Booth Number 225).

The mid-size, high-resolution 12 x 12-inch panels are available on the InfinixTM VF-i/BP. Sized for neuro procedures, the 12 x 12-inch panel provides optimal anatomical coverage and displays small vessel detail, while increasing patient access through its low-profile housing and positioning flexibility.

According to the manufacturer, the new 12 x 12-inch flat panel detector improves imaging capabilities and patient outcomes by improving workflow and patient access. In many neurological procedures, multiple physicians must access the patient simultaneously, which can be difficult when using equipment with limited positioning flexibility. The low-profile housing of the new 12 x 12-inch panel with the Infinix VF-i/BP is designed to optimize positioning flexibility, allowing the Infinix’s C-arm to be positioned for image acquisition while increasing patient access and improving workflow. This feature is especially beneficial in procedures where an anesthesiologist needs to access the patient during the exam.

Additionally, using this mid-size detector panel, physicians can capture images of large anatomical regions, such as the brain, without sacrificing small vessel detail. The flat panel detector also provides optimal coverage while still allowing for steep, compound biplane projections. Other sizes of flat panel detectors can be difficult to position, which compromises image quality, or can be too small to image large anatomical regions, like the brain.

Developed based on the Infinix-i series platform, the Infinix VF-i/BP is a floor-mounted frontal/ceiling-mounted lateral biplane system featuring multi-axis positioners with unique movement capabilities. These features allow physicians to complete procedures quickly and comfortably, reducing procedure times and improving overall departmental workflow.
