Toshiba America Medical Systems has launched the InfinixTM-iSky+, a ceiling-mounted system featuring a double-sliding C-arm and a 12-inch by 16-inch flat panel. With this system, clinicians can improve coverage, speed, and patient access.
Further, the InfinixTM-iSky+ provides clinical benefits to interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons, thanks to its C-arm design. Such benefits include 3D imaging anywhere with 210° of anatomical coverage on both the right and left sides of the patient’s body; an additional benefit is its high-speed 3D rotation of 80° per second.
Because its C-arm can be placed in a lateral position over or under the table, clinicians can prioritize both versatility and safety, which is particularly helpful in a sterile operating room. Further, the PA/AP C-arm flip allows the flat-panel detector to be positioned above or below the patient—and that provides improved flexibility for procedures such as long-needle biopsies, aspirations, and vertebroplasty, all of which require additional space.
With the C-arm, clinicians also have access to low-contrast imaging of either the head-end or either side of the patient. And the head-end access halo means that the hassle of ensuring positioning is no longer an issue; that’s because the system offers 270° C-arm, thus allowing for easy head-end access. An additional benefit of the InfinixTM-iSky+ is that it provides access to an extensive set of automated and user-selectable dose management tools that are designed to aid clinicians in minimizing x-ray exposure. Further, the system’s dose-tracking feature estimates peak skin exposure in real time.
