Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc has launched its Infinix 4DCT, an integration of interventional radiology (IR) and CT technology in one solution that is designed to allow clinicians to plan, treat, and verify in a single clinical setting.
At this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 29–December 4, 2015, Toshiba is showcasing the Infinix 4DCT’s merging of the Infinix Elite angiography system and Aquilion One Vision Edition CT system. The company reports that the Infinix Elite provides precision and flexibility during intervention, while the Aquilion One Vision Edition makes it possible to capture an entire organ in one rotation with 640 slices and 16 cm of true anatomical coverage, producing image quality that exceeds typical CT-like imaging in the interventional lab.
The combination of the interventional lab and CT is intended to eliminate the need to transfer patients between departments, allowing clinicians to decrease procedure time and maintain patient safety. Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D (Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D), offers simplified CT dose reduction that produces the image quality needed at a low dose.
The company explains that the Infinix 4DCT system was designed to expand minimally invasive procedures, improve clinical workflow, provide on-demand critical anatomical and functional information from actual CT images, reduce time to and time of procedure, and verify treatment success immediately after procedures.
