October 4, 2013 — In hybrid operating rooms (ORs), hospitals require a flexible cardiovascular X-ray system and table to allow both surgical and interventional procedures to be performed. Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Infinix DP-i X-ray system is now compatible with its CAT-880B hybrid table for hybrid and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures.
The Infinix DP-i features two independent C-arms — an 8" x 8" flat panel detector ideal for cardiac and a 12" x 16" flat panel detector ideal for peripheral imaging — allowing clinicians to use the most appropriate detector. Expanding room utilization, the CAT-880B table is designed to assist clinicians during imaging or surgery. The side-to-side cradle and head-to-toe tilt permit greater positioning flexibility and patient access. The CAT-880B table is available for all Infinix-i system configurations.
“The ergonomic design of the CAT-880B table enhances the clinician’s ability to work around the patient and accommodates views that conventional angiographic tables cannot,” said Shuzo Yamamoto, senior vice president, Toshiba. “The Infinix DP-i provides improved visualization, enhanced clinician comfort and unprecedented patient access, helping clinicians more quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients.”
