TUSTIN, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 – Paris Cardiology Center in Paris, Texas, can now provide advanced image quality and more versatile offerings with the InfinixTM Elite cardiovascular X-ray system from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. The system gives the facility the capabilities to perform the most advanced procedures and the reliability needed to serve a patient population spanning 100 miles across areas from northeast Texas to southeast Oklahoma.

“When we were opening our new cath lab, we knew our patients needed access to an array of services, from cardiac and coronary procedures to capabilities in peripheral intervention and pace-maker, defibrillator and dialysis shunt workups,” said Dr. Khalid Shafiq, Paris Cardiology Center. “We found that the reliability, image quality and customer service and training support made Toshiba’s Infinix Elite the best choice for serving our patients.”

The Infinix Elite offers unparalleled access, enabling clinicians to perform safer and more efficient exams with a C-arm designed to carefully move around patients and clinicians. Toshiba’s WorkRite technology maximizes workflow and throughput to ensure that clinicians are in an optimal ergonomic orientation during any procedure. The system also features comprehensive dose management tools such as the Dose Tracking System (DTS) and Spot Fluoroscopy to clinicians provide safer exams for patients and staff.

“In our partnership with Paris Cardiology, we saw an opportunity for a smaller imaging provider to better serve its patients by expanding their offerings with Toshiba’s most advanced cardiovascular X-ray system,” said Bill Newsom, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “In addition to the image quality and versatility of the system, Paris Cardiology benefits from responsive and experienced service support, minimizing downtime and providing uninterrupted care.”
