Toshiba Showcases Aquilion, Infinix Systems at TCT

October 18, 2007 - Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. is showcasing its suite of workflow and storage enhancements for its Aquilion CT systems as well as its Infinix VF-i/SP X-ray system at the 19th Annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics show.
Enhancements for the Aquillion CT system include a new V3 software release on the CT console that enables faster scanning and data analysis. Toshiba also is demonstrating the new automated phaseXact software (an additional component of the SURECardio package) that automatically locates the optimal phase of the heartbeat ensuring the best image quality, reportedly decreasing image reconstruction time by at least 50 percent and reducing storage requirements. Advanced rendering and analysis in seconds is now possible with V3’s enhanced DICOM data transfers. This new option enables data transfer at up to 60 images-per-second.
The Infinix VF-i/SP X-ray system is 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 patient access and anatomical coverage, including head-to-toe, finger tip-to-finger tip coverage. These features reportedly allow clinicians to complete procedures more quickly and comfortably than traditional systems, reducing procedure times and improving overall departmental workflow. In addition, a high-resolution 12”x16” flat panel detector provides the uniform, distortion-free images required for the full range of cardiovascular studies.
