Toshiba's New InfinixTM 4DCT Seamlessly Integrates IR And CT Into One Solution

2014-12-03

Challenges the Status Quo in Minimally Invasive Procedures with Improved Workflow, Accuracy and Safety

CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2014 –– As the first seamless integration between Interventional Radiology (IR) and CT technology, Toshiba's all-new InfinixTM 4DCT provides clinicians with faster, safer and more accurate interventions. With this innovative combination, healthcare providers can plan, treat and verify in a single clinical setting for better patient care – rather than transferring patients between departments, risking infection and dragging out procedure times.

Toshiba's InfinixTM 4DCT maximizes the full potential of IR and CT systems to deliver real-time CT images during interventional procedures. The system significantly improves workflow with its SUREGuidance technology (pending Health Canada clearance) that allows for seamless and automatic transition between modalities. And, it is capable of saving hours by allowing clinicians to perform CT and interventional procedures within the same room and verify treatment success immediately after procedures.

Clinically, the system improves workflow of oncology and cardiac procedures. It provides interventionalists with CT images of liver tumors and produces more precise views of the heart and stent placements. Clinicians can also adjust the procedure with real-time studies instead of relying on CT images taken at an earlier time. With the InfinixTM 4DCT, physicians benefit from a seamlessly integrated IR and CT product to improve patient care.

 

As the first seamless integration between Interventional Radiology (IR) and CT technology, Toshiba’s all-new InfinixTM 4DCT provides clinicians with faster, safer and more accurate interventions.

Toshiba introduced the InfinixTM 4DCT at this year's Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 30 – Dec. 5, 2014 (Booth #7333, North Hall). Currently the system is FDA cleared with the Infinix Elite and AquilionTM ONE ViSION Edition configuration, and is pending Health Canada clearance.
