Showcasing Infinix-i’s Unconventional Collimation Technology at SIR
NEW ORLEANS, April 12, 2013 – Improving patient safety while offering clinicians a more complete picture during interventional procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase Spot Fluoroscopy for its InfinixTM-i vascular X-ray systems at this year’s Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) 2013 annual meeting.
Spot Fluoroscopy allows clinicians to observe a region of anatomy using live fluoroscopy while viewing the Last Image Hold (LIH) surrounding area, resulting in lower dose and a larger image display for quicker diagnoses.
“Spot Fluoroscopy changes visualization compared to conventional collimation with the ability to see inside and outside the region of interest in a single view,” said Allan Berthe, senior manager, Market Development, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “The technology enables greater efficiency and safer procedures with the ability to reduce dose to patients and clinicians.”
Toshiba will also showcase its latest technologies to improve 3D and low-contrast imaging reconstruction speeds on its Infinix-i systems at SIR, New Orleans, April 13-18, 2013 (Booth #1013).
