Toshiba Medical’s Infinix-i 4DCT room has been in installed by the Montpellier University Hospital in France, making it the first in Europe to combine a new generation angiography room, a 640 slice 4D CT scanner moving on a sophisticated rail concept and a widescreen display. The interventional radiology intervention room installed in the Department of Interventional Radiology at the St-Eloi Hospital for the treatment of liver tumors is the 11th in the world (7th in Japan, 2nd in Korea, and 1st in the US) to integrate such advanced technology.
Toshiba Medical Systems Europe, a Canon group company, markets, sells, distributes and services radiology and cardiovascular systems, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, X-ray and interventional X-ray equipment.
“We are extremely pleased with the new Infinix-i 4D CT system. It is a very flexible and user-friendly system with many intelligent tools for dose optimization,” said Professor Boris Guiu, Head of the Department at St-Eloi Hospital. “With this new room, we can carry out complex procedures of hepatic interventional radiology, which require all the existing guidance means, such as liver thermo ablations. Each year, we take care of approximately 1,000 patients in this room in the best conditions of care, safety and comfort.”
“We are very proud to support the oldest faculty of medicine in Europe with our newest interventional clinical concept,” said René Degros, Business Unit Manager, X-ray, at Toshiba Medical. “The groundbreaking new Infinix-i 4DCT supports our customers in bridging the gap between the interventional lab and CT with one seamlessly integrated solution for the ultimate in patient care. Infinix-i 4DCT eliminates the need to transfer patients back and forth between different rooms, while minimizing dose and maintaining patient safety. In this way the system can help save valuable time and gain efficiencies with the ability to plan, treat, and verify in the same room, on a single system.”
