A new cardiovascular imaging system streamlines a patient’s experience, without foregoing image quality, safety, or effectiveness, with two independent C-arms in one room.

Infinix Select, developed by Toshiba Medical Systems (Tokyo, Japan), improves system utilization by enabling a single room to accommodate virtually any patient. “Coronary artery disease is a strong indicator of peripheral vascular disease, so a system that provides the ability to more accurately image and examine both anatomical areas on the same patient is a true time saver for the clinical staff and department and is better for the patient,” Dr. Pulukurthy, Harrison Medical Center (Bremerton, WA, USA).

Because multifunctionality optimizes the patient experience, the system’s features include two independent C-arms: a large detector for vascular imaging and a small detector for cardiac imaging; clear visualization and to perform more complex procedures; and an optimized object detector distance to reduce dose and see more clearly, creating safer and more rapid exams.
