Toshiba’s New EP Package Optimizes Procedures to Improve Patient Care
Features Improve Safety, Workflow and Room Utilization
Heart Rhythm 2013
DENVER -- May 07, 2013
HRS Booth #418 -- Electrophysiology (EP) clinical teams require a unique set
of technologies to perform accurate and safe exams. Toshiba America Medical
Systems, Inc. offers these clinicians an Infinix^TM-i cardiovascular X-ray
system tailored for EP procedures with a new package of features, accessories
and technologies. This package maximizes room utilization, improves workflow
and enhances safety.
*System Design: Infinix-i’s C-arm movement provides complete patient
coverage while creating an access halo (180 degrees of unobstructed
head-end access) around the head end of the table, resulting in
significantly more room for the clinical team and additional equipment.
*Safer Exams: Exclusive Spot Fluoroscopy technology optimizes the
administration of radiation dose by enabling a custom sized “spot” of live
fluoroscopy overlaid with the Last Image Hold (LIH) to expand
visualization while better managing radiation exposure. Patented Super
Noise Reduction Filter (SNRF) technology provides superior fluoroscopic
image quality with fewer X-rays, reducing overall exposure to both the
patient and staff.
*Tableside Accessory Rails: Adds sliding (length-extending) tableside
accessory rails to expand or retract the rail length to attach common
*Ceiling-Mounted Equipment Boom: Optimizes placement and organization of
critical equipment off the floor to improve room organization and increase
*Surgical Lamp: Provides efficient luminance for implantable
cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) and pacemaker insertions and is installed
on an extended ceiling arm to reach both sides of the patient.
“The EP package complements the Infinix-i’s abilities to help clinicians move
better, see better and work better, while providing them the tools needed to
optimize workflow and workspace,” said Shuzo Yamamoto, senior vice president,
Toshiba will introduce its EP package at the Heart Rhythm Society’s (HRS)
annual meeting (Booth #418) in Denver, May 8–11, 2013.
