The way is clear for Toshiba America Medical Systems to begin integrating a flat-panel detector into its Infinix-i series of vascular imaging systems. The detector, which offers an 8-inch-square (20 cm x 20 cm) field-of-view, has passed FDA review for use in high-resolution dynamic imaging. The flat panel will be integrated into new Infinix systems as well as units in the installed base. Swapping the flat panel for image intensifiers onboard Infinix-i systems will take about three days, according to the company. The Infinix-i series comes in single-, bi-, and dual-plane configurations.
