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
    accessories.
  *Ceiling-Mounted Equipment Boom: Optimizes placement and organization of
    critical equipment off the floor to improve room organization and increase
    staff efficiency.
  *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.

Toshiba will introduce its EP package at the Heart Rhythm Society’s (HRS)
annual meeting (Booth #418) in Denver, May 8–11, 2013.
