VIDEO: Latest Advances With Shimadzu's Angiography Imaging Systems

Shimadzu Medical Systems highlighted new features of its Trinias Interventional X-ray line at the America College of Cardiology (ACC) 2017. 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, eliminating the artifacts from the patient motion during acquisition while STENTVIEW, is an enhanced visualization during stent placement in real-time. Shimadzu also highlighted its partnership with Raysafe and its real-time staff radiation dose monitoring solution. For more information: http://shimadzu.com/med/products/angio/index.html
