First Interventional Lab and CT System to Expand Minimally Invasive Procedures to Help Clinicians Improve Workflow and Maintain Patient Safety
CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2015 – The industry’s first seamless integration of interventional radiology (IR) and CT technology into one solution, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s InfinixTM 4DCT allows clinicians to plan, treat and verify in a single clinical setting. At this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 29 – December 4, 2015 (Booth #7336, North Hall), Toshiba is showcasing the Infinix 4DCT’s innovative merging of the Infinix Elite angiography system and AquilionTM ONE ViSION Edition CT system.
The Infinix Elite provides precision and flexibility during intervention, while the Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition is capable of capturing an entire organ in one rotation with 640 slices* and 16 cm of true anatomical coverage, producing image quality that far exceeds CT-like imaging of the interventional lab. The combination of the interventional lab and CT eliminates the need to transfer patients between departments and allows clinicians to decrease procedure time and maintain patient safety. Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D (Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D), offers simplified CT dose reduction that produces the image quality needed at a low dose.
“We designed the Infinix 4DCT system to improve clinical workflow, provide on-demand critical anatomical and functional information from actual CT images, and reduce time to and time of procedure and verify treatment success immediately after procedures,” said Bill Newsom, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Toshiba puts customers first by providing technology that offers accurate exams, improves safety and optimizes clinicians’ time.”
Toshiba will showcase the Infinix 4DCT system at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 29 – December 4, 2015 (Booth #7336, North Hall).
