Jan 10, 2013– Tustin, USA (Techreleased) –To improve visualization and diagnostic confidence during a wide range of interventional and EP procedures, California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles installed three InfinixTM-i vascular X-ray systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.
“Infinix-i’s design offers unprecedented access to the patient and provides images required for neuro, vascular and cardiovascular procedures by easily covering fingertip-to-fingertip and head-to-toe,” said Dr. Faye Lee, director, Cardiovascular Service Line, California Hospital Medical Center. “Advanced dose reduction technologies like Fluoro Store make exams safer by preventing repeat patient exposure.”
California Hospital uses Toshiba’s Infinix-i systems to perform general and peripheral vascular exams, including acute myocardial infarction, peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC), transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), coronary, electrophysiology (EP) and radial procedures.
“California Hospital required a system that offered unrestricted patient access and would work with their clinicians to see, move and work better,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Toshiba’s Infinix-i with WorkRite technology, featuring the unconventional five-axis design, enhances ergonomics and line of sight to display monitors. The result: increased clinician comfort and productivity.”
