Toshiba Introduces New Vascular X-ray System

November 9, 2007 - Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. recently introduced its Infinix VF-i/SP X-ray system, a universal cardiovascular system designed to accommodate diagnostic and interventional procedures.

Developed based on the popular Infinix-i series platform, the new floor-mounted, single plane system features a multi-axis positioner with versatile movement for unprecedented patient access and anatomical coverage, including head-to-toe, finger tip-to-finger tip coverage, according to the company. A high-resolution 12-by-16-inch flat panel detector provides the uniform, distortion-free images required for the full range of cardiovascular studies.

Other system features include a programmable tableside dose control option that optimizes dose management and a high table weight capacity, which reportedly allows clinicians to accommodate larger patients. The system also features a CV-3D workstation and a 3D coronary analysis package for accurate assessment.
