Toshiba America Medical Systems has introduced for its line of rotational angiography equipment 3D technology that simultaneously visualizes blood vessels and bone. The technology, dubbed three-dimensional fusion digital subtraction angiography (3D-FDSA), is designed to optimize neurovascular disease diagnosis and surgical planning on its Infinix i-series of vascular x-ray systems. The fusion capability combines separate reconstructions of blood vessels and bone structures in a single volumetric representation, illustrating intracranial vascular anomalies in the context of surrounding bone structures. It was developed in conjunction with neuroradiologists at Johns Hopkins University.
