Toshiba Rolls Out New Flat Panel Detector, Image Processing for Cardiac Procedures

March 30, 2009 – Improving upon the success of its current X-ray technologies, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. is introducing a new addition to its Infinix-i cardiovascular system offering – the Infinix VF-i with mid-sized flat panel detector (FPD) and Next Generation AIP technology, and will demonstrate these new additions at this year’s American College of Cardiology Annual Scientific Sessions in Orlando, FL, March 29 - 31, 2009 (Booth # 2629).

The system includes a new 12-inch-by-12-inch flat panel detector (FPD) and a new digital processor. This system will incorporate all the technology that the Infinix line provides for unprecedented access, including complete head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage, and comprehensive system configuration.

“The new addition to our Infinix product line will greatly improve the resolution and visualization for cardiac procedures,” said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “This system not only provides increased visualization but will also improve system utilization, an important feature for today’s cath lab.”

The Infinix VF-i incorporates new features into the digital processor to expand on Toshiba’s proprietary Advanced Image Processing (AIP) technology. This exclusive Toshiba technology enhances overall resolution, improves visibility over dark anatomical areas and virtually eliminates image lag. These enhancements assist clinicians with device and stent visualization and are especially important while using fluoroscopic imaging during diagnostic and interventional procedures.

The newly added 12-inch-by-12-inch FPD covers more than twice the anatomical surface area of a traditional cardiac FPD making it an important feature for today’s cath labs. This mid-sized panel increases system utilization by allowing cardiologists to increase their working field-of-view and more easily perform procedures outside the heart while minimally impacting the angulations, which can be compromised by larger pan.
