The latest version of DTS, which measures peak radiation skin dose during interventional procedures, will now provide expanded bi-plane (frontal and lateral) coverage, enhancing functionality for neurovascular and congenital cardiology cases. The expanded DTS also includes specific patient head models conducive to achieving peak skin dose estimates to neurovascular procedures. Furthermore, users will have an improved ability to track tilt and cradle movement of the table. According to Toshiba, these updates will enable clinicians to track and measure peak skin dose while providing safer cardiovascular X-ray exams.

“DTS is a first-of-its-kind technology that improves patient safety and experience,” said David Sloop, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Understanding our customers’ business, we saw the opportunity to better serve them with these enhancements. Expanding the coverage and benefit of DTS across more applications gives customers the confidence that they are providing the safest, best approach to diagnoses and treatment.”
