South Georgia Medical Center (SGMC) is now able to conduct faster, safer and more comfortable procedures using Toshiba’s cardiovascular X-ray systems. To serve patients during more than 2,500 diagnostic cardiac catheterizations and interventional procedures annually, SGMC installed one InfinixTM VC-i and two Infinix VF-i systems.
“We compared all the relevant cardiovascular X-ray systems on the market and selected Toshiba because of its reliable service and support team, which ensure we don’t experience any downtime,” said Janet Bennett, cath lab manager, SGMC. “The mechanical design of the Infinix-i provides unparalleled access and coverage for greater flexibility to move around the patient. The high-quality images enable us to perform safer and more accurate exams.”
Toshiba’s Infinix-i features unmatched flexibility in C-arm movement, allowing for head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage with unrestricted 180-degree patient head-end access to perform exams with ease. When combined with Toshiba’s proprietary Next Generation Advance Image Processing (AIP), the Infinix-i improves visualization, helping clinicians diagnose and treat patients with enhanced accuracy. Infinix-i systems also feature dose management optimization technologies, such as the Dose Tracking System, Spot Fluoro, Advanced Image Processing (AIP), Live Digital, Zoom Virtual Collimation and Grid Pulsed Fluoro, helping reduce dose to both patient and staff.
“Acquiring diagnostic imaging equipment is a substantial capital purchase for hospitals and health systems,” said David Sloop, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “That’s why we believe in putting our customers first and becoming a long-term partner by providing the industry’s best service support and training throughout the life of the technology.”
