Dramatically Reduces Room Design and Planning Time and Helps Ensure Space Efficiency
CHICAGO, Dec. 2, 2015 – Toshiba is making it easier to plan for system installation with Envision 360, the industry’s first interactive and real-time-customizable 3D planning tool. Envision 360 maximizes efficiency in the planning process and allows for real-time customization, reducing the time it takes to design a room from weeks to as little as a few days.
Envision 360 delivers photorealistic and interactive 3D renderings of both equipment and room layouts, instead of the current standard of static drawings. Users can virtually fly through the space and view the room from any angle, seeing exactly how the system moves and functions in the room to allow for maximum efficiency of space and less time spent in the planning process. This means that customers planning hybrid or multi-modality offerings can ensure that interventional and OR equipment work together with enough room for clinicians to conduct procedures. The tool can reduce design costs and help hospitals budget more accurately for system installation.
“We know that our customers have many concerns that demand their attention, so we created this tool to reduce the time usually taken to plan these rooms,” said Roy Sakai, senior director, Billings Services, Toshiba. “We strive to make partnering with Toshiba easy, and tools like Envision 360 help customers more efficiently achieve their goals.”
Toshiba will showcase its Envision 360 software at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 29 – December 4, 2015 (Booth #7336, North Hall).
