A family of digital angiography systems from Shimadzu has been cleared for marketing in the United States by the FDA. The ceiling-mounted Trinias, floor-mounted Trinias, and Biplane models incorporate Shimadzu’s SCORE PRO image processing technology. SCORE PRO is designed to enhance the fluoroscopic image while maintaining as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) dose considerations for all clinical staff. The Trinias is equipped with a new 8-inch flat-panel detector for cardiac-suited procedures as well as for neurological exams.
