Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. Tustin, Calif., announced that it is expanding the availability of its Next Generation Advanced Image Processing (AIP) to more systems in the Toshiba InfinixTM-i product line. AIP is a technology designed to increase the quality, sharpness, and image contrast during interventional procedures.
Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, at Toshiba, said in the announcement, “This new processor produces better image quality, reduces background noise, and improves device and vessel visualization to allow physicians to improve workflow and provide better patient care during interventional procedures.”
Next Generation AIP uses proprietary technology to increase the quality, sharpness, and image contrast during interventional procedures. The company says that it virtually eliminates image lag, helping the focus of interventional radiologists as they guide and deploy devices during fluoroscopy. It can also be useful for stent implementation, patients with rapid heart rates or small tortuous arteries, and for bariatric patients.
The Next Generation AIP is now available on the Infinix-i systems with mid-and large-sized flat panel detectors.
