New biplane X-ray system offers increased patient access and anatomical coverage

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 26 November, 2007  (New Product)
Toshiba America Medical Systems has introduced a new biplane X-ray system, the Infinix VF-i/BP, which is designed to provide superior patient anatomical coverage through its multi-axis floor C-arm and suspended omega-arm, featuring variable iso-centre that simplifies biplane positioning and isocentring.
'The new Infinix system is set up to allow 180-degree head-end patient access,' said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. 'The Infinix's multi-axis floor-mounted C-arm and suspended omega-arm allows head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage without having to pan or pivot the table. This allows physicians to move the system around the patient, instead of moving the patient around the system.'

The Infinix VF-i/BP’s increased patient access allows several staff members, as well as anaesthesiologists, to easily and simultaneously access the patient. Vascular and neuro X-ray procedures particularly benefit from this, as the physician often must remain by the patient's side.

The Infinix VF-i/BP also offers high-resolution imaging through two flat panel detectors - a 12x16inch FPD on the multi-axis C-arm and an 8x8inch FPD on the ceiling suspended omega-arm. All of these features allow maximum flexibility needed for complex vascular and neuro interventional procedures with high-resolution imaging at the lowest dose.

The Infinix VF-i/BP also includes configuration flexibility, liquid-metal bearing X-ray tube and an innovative table design that allows a variety of patients to be imaged.
