After announcing that its Infinix DP-i X-ray system was now compatible with its CAT-880B hybrid table, Toshiba showcased the new combination system at this year’s New Cardiovascular Horizons (NCVH) annual conference (5-7 June, New Orleans, USA).
According to a company press release, the Infinix DP-i provides no-compromise coverage and imaging of coronary and peripheral anatomy, which is extremely valuable for hospitals striving to optimise patient management and care. The system features two independent C-arms—an 8″ x 8″ flat panel detector ideal for cardiac and a 12″ x 16″ flat panel detector ideal for peripheral imaging—allowing clinicians to use the most appropriate detector. Expanding room use, the CAT-880B table is designed to assist clinicians during imaging or surgery. The side-to-side cradle and head-to-toe tilt permit greater positioning flexibility and patient access. The CAT-880B table is available for all Infinix-i system configurations.
“The ergonomic design of the CAT-880B table enhances the clinician’s ability to work around the patient and accommodates views that conventional angiographic tables cannot,” said Shuzo Yamamoto, senior vice president, Toshiba. “The Infinix DP-i provides improved visualisation, enhanced clinician comfort and unprecedented patient access, helping clinicians more quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients. The compatibility of the two allows hospitals to create an ideal hybrid room.”
