Infinix-i’s WorkRite Technology Showcased at ACC

 SAN FRANCISCO, March 10, 2013 – To conduct cardiovascular interventions with ease, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase the InfinixTM-i bi-plane angiography system at this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in San Francisco, March 9 – 11, 2013 (Booth #5733, North Hall). Toshiba will demonstrate how the capabilities of the Infinix-i allow clinicians to move, see and work better, including:

  • WorkRite technology to showcase the system’s flexibility, superior ergonomics and patient-access features during transradial procedures.
  • Spot Fluoroscopy, a new, unconventional way to provide collimation, giving physicians the ability to see more clinical information outside the live fluoro region of interest (ROI).
  • Access Halo, the Infinix-i’s unique design that provides 180 degrees of direct head-end patient access for clinical teams during advanced procedures with maximum efficiency and safety.
  • Transaortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) software that supports the planning and deployment phases for this procedure.

“Infinix-i gives clinicians the tools they need to reduce complications and conduct interventional cardiovascular procedures with ease,” said Allan Berthe, senior manager, Market Development, XRVL Business Unit, Toshiba. “The Infinix-i works with the clinician, giving ideal access to any part of the patient, streamlining procedures to deliver better interventional treatment.”
