Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. has introduced its Next Generation CV-3D™ workstation and software package available on the Infinix™-i X-ray product line. Next Generation CV-3D is an integrated reconstruction workstation and software, designed to take a 2D X-ray image and reconstruct a new, more detailed 3D image in a matter of seconds.
The new image provides a 3D reconstructed view of the same vessel under study, allowing physicians to determine the best treatment plan. CV-3D visualization assists physicians in selecting the most appropriate stent, potentially reducing the need for additional invasive devices. Some of the latest enhancements optimize stent selection and positioning by automatically including markers in the view and providing a clear view of the stent in relationship to the vessel wall, which validates proper stent deployment. Clinicians also can increase workflow by utilizing the Infinix-i tableside controls to display the preferred CV-3D image in the examination room.
Robert Micer, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba said, This new workstation and software have the ability to improve patient safety and lower health care costs by eliminating additional invasive procedures and leading to more precise treatment plans.
