X-ray System Provides Unprecedented Patient Access and Anatomical Coverage

CHICAGO, Nov. 25 , 2007 – Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc., a leader in diagnostic and medical imaging, will showcase its biplane X-ray system, the Infinix™ VF-i/BP at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting held in Chicago , Nov. 25 – 30 (Booth # 7130).

"The new Infinix system is set up to allow 180-degree 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 provides superior patient anatomical coverage through its multi-axis floor C-arm and suspended omega-arm, featuring variable iso-center that simplifies biplane positioning and isocenetering. The increased patient access allows several staff members, as well as anesthesia, 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 12x16" FPD on the multi-axis C-arm and an 8x8" 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.

* Infinix™ is the trade mark of Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation
