Toshiba Introduces Infinix-i Sky + Double Sliding C-arm

Ceiling-mounted system delivers 3-D imaging anywhere to enhance workflow

October 5, 2016 — Interventional labs now have an imaging system that provides clinicians flexibility to perform a wide array of procedures with the launch of Toshiba’s Infinix-i Sky +*. The ceiling-mounted system features a double sliding C-arm and 12 x 16-inch flat panel, offering clinicians the potential to increase coverage, speed and patient access.

The C-arm design delivers numerous clinical benefits to interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons. Those include:

  • 3-D imaging anywhere: The new system can deliver 3-D imaging anywhere with 210 degrees of anatomical coverage on both the right and left side of the patient, and a high-speed 3-D rotation of 80 degrees per second;
  • Image over or under the table: The Infinix-i Sky + is capable of having its C-arm in a lateral position over or under the table, enabling clinicians to prioritize versatility and safety, particularly in a sterile OR environment;
  • PA/AP C-arm flip: By allowing the flat panel detector to be positioned above or below the patient, the system offers increased flexibility for procedures that require additional space, including long needle biopsies, aspirations and vertebroplasty;
  • Low contrast imaging: The double sliding C-arm system mechanics supports low contrast imaging from the head-end or either side of the patient; and
  • Head-end Access Halo: Ensuring positioning is never a hassle for clinicians, the system’s Access Halo offers 270-degree C-arm rotation that allows for easy head-end access.

The Infinix-i Sky + incorporates an extensive set of automated and user-selectable dose management tools, designed to help clinicians minimize X-ray exposure. This includes technology like the Dose Tracking System that estimates peak skin dose exposure in real time.

*The Infinix-i Sky  + is the INFX-8000C (with CAS-930A C-arm).
