RSNA 2012 Toshiba Infinix X-ray WorkRite Technology

December 7, 2012 — Featuring hovercraft-like C-arm movement and the unique Access Halo, the WorkRite technology on Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Infinix-i cardiovascular X-ray systems makes interventional procedures easier for clinicians and improves patient care.

The Infinix-i five-axis system’s WorkRite technology feature is designed to ensure the interventionalist is in an optimal ergonomic orientation during any procedure. This helps prevent fatigue and injury that can occur when ergonomics are compromised. WorkRite enables proper ergonomics and improved patient access, enhancing speed and precision for a safer, more efficient work environment.

“At our practice we do everything from peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) lines to transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) procedures and the Infinix-i’s system mechanics and image quality greatly improve the ability to conduct exams accurately and efficiently,” said. Paul Kamin, interventional radiologist, California Hospital Medical Center. “The system can easily cover from fingertip to fingertip and head to toe, providing us with the images required for neuro and vascular procedures.”

“Developed using direct input from customers, Toshiba’s Infinix-i systems enable clinicians to do what they do best – diagnose and treat patients,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “The systems are designed for the future of interventional procedures, allowing clinicians ideal access to the patient and equipment while treating any part of the human anatomy.”
