TUSTIN, CA — October 23, 2007 — Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. a leader in medical and diagnostic imaging equipment, today announced the first U.S. installation of the Infinix CF-i/SP™ X-ray system was recently completed at Arlington Memorial Hospital, an acute-care full-service medical center, in Arlington, Texas.
“Arlington Memorial’s mission to improve the health of the communities they serve aligns with Toshiba’s goal of advancing diagnostic imaging and improving overall patient care and comfort,” said Robert Micer, director, X-Ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “We look forward to working with the hospital to build upon its cardiac program for patients.”
Toshiba’s Infinix CF-i/SP is a dedicated cardiac cath lab that features a floor mounted C-arm with five-axis positioner that allows head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage and multiple angles, making it possible to obtain images without re-positioning patients.
