Eight Live Cases at Peripheral Angioplasty/All That Jazz Annual Conference Using Infinix DP-i

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 31, 2011 – Enabling clinicians to seamlessly transition between cardiac and peripheral intervention during a single procedure, InfinixTM DP-i cardiovascular X-ray system from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will be used in eight live cases at Peripheral Angioplasty and All That Jazz conference, Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, 2011, New Orleans. The live cases will take place at Ochsner Medical Center and focus on:

• Monday, October 31: Symposium for Nurses and Technologists
• Tuesday, November 1: Atrial Septal Defect and Patent Foramen Ovale; Carotid Intervention; Subclavian and Vertebral Cases
• Wednesday, November 2: Lower Extremity Cases; Renal Cases; Aortic/Mesenteric Cases; Miscellaneous Cases on Complications and Hot Topics

The Infinix DP-i features two C-arms – 8″ x 8″ flat panel detector for cardiac and a 12″ x 16″ flat panel detector for peripheral – allowing clinicians to use the most appropriate detector. When combined with Toshiba’s proprietary Next Generation Advanced Image Processing (AIP), Infinix DP-i provides improved visualization, helping clinicians more quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients.

“Infinix DP-i’s two independent yet dedicated C-arms result in one system working like two, and there is no other system like it,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “The ability to switch flat panel detectors, coupled with superior contrast, dynamic resolution and reduced image lag, allows for better visualization by both clinicians and spectators, improving patient treatment and learning opportunities.”
