Toshiba Showcases 56-Inch Large Monitor Display for Infinix-i Vascular and Cardiovascular X-ray Systems

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7, 2011 – In cath lab procedures, clearly visualizing complex vascular structures is crucial to making exams faster and easier. Toshiba will showcase a new 56-inch LCD monitor for the InfinixTM-i line at this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual conference, November 7–11, 2011, in San Francisco, Calif.

The 8-megapixel, 56-inch LCD color monitor provides enlarged views of critical patient information, so clinicians can treat patients accurately, improving safety and outcomes. Regardless of clinical discipline, high-resolution patient information is displayed on one screen, so clinicians can easily change from one large fluoroscopic image to multiple display fields and preview critical information at a glance.

“Clearly viewing intricate details of the vascular structure during intervention makes procedures as safe and efficient as possible,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Toshiba’s 56-inch large monitor enables patient-friendly diagnoses and treatment by enlarging views of critical patient information and expanding clinical viewing possibilities.”
