Kloetzly focuses on the Trinias Interventional X-ray line shown at RSNA 2016. Kloetzly states “A key feature of Trinias, is the ability to image from fingertip to fingertip during a transradial approach which makes for much shorter hospital stay with the patient up and moving almost immediately after the procedure. Features Like RSM-DSA, a type of motion correction subtraction, eliminates patient movement during acquisition while STENTVIEW, is an enhanced visualization during stent placement in real-time." For more information: www.shimadzu.com/med/products/angio/index.html.
