May 19, 2015 — Shimadzu Medical Systems USA announced the first U.S. West Coast installation of its Trinias C-12 high performance “crossover” system at Kalispell Regional Medical Center in Kalispell, Montana. Shimadzu dealer/partner Core Medical Imaging Inc. of Kenmore, Washington, completed the installation of the angiographic system, which went into operation at the medical center in late April.

The Trinias-12 family, with floor and ceiling mount options, is designed as a “crossover” room capable of performing both cardiac and vascular interventional examinations. The ceiling-mounted Trinias C-12 at Kalispell Regional is equipped with a 58-inch Eizo 8MP display monitor.

Patient safety is at the forefront of the system, whose seven radiation dose reduction features produce high-quality images while minimizing exposure. Its SCORE PRO image processing technology dramatically enhances fluoroscopic images and provides multiple specialized functions to expedite exam procedures. SCORE RSM is an extremely motion-tolerant DSA technique achieved through Shimadzu’s high-speed image processing technology. The first case at Kalispell Regional was a SCORE RSM utilizing C-arm precession motion.

Kalispell Regional Medical Center provides a wide range of interventional radiology services. The Trinias will be used with the center’s  “multidisciplinary team approach to patient care.”
