US Medical Center Introduces Toshiba Cardiovascular X-ray Technology

Ochsner Medical Center makes interventional procedures safer and more efficient with new equipment and adds a Toshiba Infinix DP-i and Hybrid OR suite for unparalleled access and coverage

Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans is further improving patient safety and comfort in interventional cardiology by adding new equipment from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. Ochsner installed a new hybrid OR suite and an Infinix DP-i cardiovascular X-ray system to conduct transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and other coronary and peripheral procedures.

“When we were considering expanding our cardiovascular capabilities and adding a new Toshiba hybrid OR suite to our existing four labs, there was no question about the technology that best meets our needs,” said Dr. Tyrone Collins, section head, Interventional Cardiology and co-director, Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory, Ochsner Medical Center. “Toshiba’s cardiovascular X-ray system design provides unmatched flexibility with better access to the patient, and the ability to record and archive images. As a long-time partner of Toshiba, we particularly value the company’s service and support approach.”

Toshiba’s Infinix DP-i provides unmatched flexibility with two C-arms that optimise room utilisation and make it easy to switch from one to the other during a single procedure. Designed to perform vascular, neuro and cardiovascular procedures, the systems include high-resolution flat-panel detectors. Ochsner Medical Center also utilises Toshiba’s CAT-880B hybrid catheterisation table in its hybrid OR lab to support endovascular as well as open surgical interventions.

“The Infinix-i was designed to offer unparalleled access to the patient, ensuring clinicians are in optimal ergonomic orientation during any procedure,” said David Sloop, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Combined with dose management optimisation technologies such as Next Generation AIP, the system allows providers to improve visualisation and quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients safely.”
