Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, Washington, US, has implemented Toshiba America Medical Systems’ three Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems to conduct interventional cardiac, peripheral and electrophysiology exams.
The Infinix DP-i dual-plane system is designed to perform cardiac and vascular procedures in one room.
The Infinix DP-i features dual C-arms – one with an 8" x 8" flat-panel detector for cardiac and one with a 12" x 16" flat-panel detector for peripheral – to perform any type of intervention without moving patients between rooms.
Harrison Medical Center interventional cardiologist Satyavardhan Pulukurthy said that the radial approach reduces complications and improves patient recovery time.
"The C-arms of Toshiba’s Infinix-i systems easily move in any direction, creating optimal imaging angles and putting clinicians in the ideal position for radial interventions on either side," Pulukurthy said.
