TOSHIBA INTRODUCES NEW INFINIX VF-i/SP VASCULAR X-RAY SYSTEM New, Multi-Axis Cardiovascular X-Ray System Handles Both Diagnostic and Interventional Procedures

TUSTIN, Calif. March26, 2007 - Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. today announced the introduction of its Infinix™ VF-i/SP X-ray system, a universal cardiovascular system designed to accommodate diagnostic and interventional procedures. The system will be showcased at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in New Orleans March 24-27, 2007.

Developed based on the popular Infinix-i series platform, the new floor-mounted, single plane system features a multi-axis positioner with extremely versatile movement for unprecedented patient access and anatomical coverage, including head-to-toe, finger tip-to-finger tip coverage. These features allow clinicians to complete procedures more quickly and comfortably than traditional systems, reducing procedure times and improving overall departmental workflow. In addition, a high-resolution 12"x16" flat panel detector provides the uniform, distortion-free images required for the full range of cardiovascular studies.

"Flexibility and efficiency are very important to clinicians and there continues to be demand for high-quality, universal cardiovascular systems that can handle diagnostic and interventional procedures using just one room," said Robert Micer, director, X-Ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. "Not only does this system enable clinicians to accomplish more, but it also improves the overall experience for patients."

Other system features include a unique programmable tableside dose control option that optimizes dose management and industry leading table weight capacity of 484 pounds, which allows clinicians to accommodate larger patients. The system also features a CV-3D workstation and a 3 D coronary analysis package for accurate assessment.
