According to a new KLAS study, the major vendors of cardiovascular/interventional x-ray are delivering high-performing solutions across the board.

The new report highlights the experiences of 106 provider organizations, focusing specifically on hybrid labs. Of the five vendors rated, every one of them beat the average client-satisfaction score for medical equipment, according to a KLAS-issued press release.

The results included a mix of the familiar and a couple of new players in the market, according to study author Kirk Ising, KLAS’ director of medical equipment and medical imaging research, in the company release. “Traditional powerhouses GE, Philips and Siemens continue to deliver high-quality, versatile equipment and above-average performance, with Philips maintaining its leadership position in terms of overall market share and mind share among providers,” he said. “However, relative newcomers Toshiba and Shimadzu now offer hospitals additional options that are getting the attention of some providers.”

Newcomer Toshiba was the overall leader in the CV/IR x-ray market scoring top in overall client satisfaction and value, offering reliable equipment with ample functionality at aggressive prices, according to the report.  Among the products rated in the KLAS report, the Toshiba Infinix-i Angio garnered the highest overall performance score with a 91.2 out of 100, the Philips Allura Xper FD20 followed with 88.0,  and the Siemens AXIOM Artis zee Angio rounded out the top three with an 87.0.
