New low-contrast imaging unit improves visualisation of soft tissue

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 03 December, 2007  (New Product)
Toshiba America Medical Systems has unveiled its new low-contrast imaging feature (510k pending) available on all Toshiba Infinix-i large panel X-ray systems.
'As an industry leader in low-contrast imaging for CT, Toshiba is proud to leverage this expertise to bring exceptional low-contrast imaging capabilities to X-ray,' said Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. 'Toshiba's new low-contrast imaging feature for the Infinix-i X-ray line can achieve better images of all soft tissues, including brain tissue, cerebral ventricles and hepatic visualisation, thus allowing patients to be imaged and treated more quickly and accurately.'

The low-contrast imaging feature expands the current capabilities of X-ray. Low-contrast imaging allows visualisations of soft tissue in the angiography suite, a benefit for both physicians and patients by allowing for more accurate diagnosis of a variety of diseases using a single system. This increases patient comfort and safety, as the number of exams and movement to a CT scanner are potentially reduced.

Toshiba's low-contrast imaging technique for the Infinix-i line will be available to customers beginning in December 2007.
