March 12, 2015 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Dose Tracking System makes interventional procedures safer for patients by measuring peak radiation skin dose during the exam. To expand clinical applications, Toshiba is introducing enhancements to DTS for the entire Infinix product line, including the Elite, Select and Essential cardiovascular X-ray systems.
DTS now offers expanded bi-plane (frontal and lateral) coverage, and increasing system utilization for neurovascular and congenital cardiology cases. The new version of DTS features specific patient head models that expand the ability to provide peak skin dose estimates to neurovascular procedures. An enhanced ability to track tilt and cradle movement of the table allows for additional expansion of capabilities in peak skin dose estimates. These new features help clinicians track and measure peak skin dose and help provide safer cardiovascular X-ray exams.
