"Kalare's flexible digital system not only provides excellent support for radiography/fluoroscopy and interventional radiology, but facilitates ease-of-use and comfort for more patient-focused exams," he said.

Features include a large capacity table, compact in-room console, and longer than usual distances from the tabletop to the fluoroscopy unit, enabling users to work more efficiently and concentrate on delivering care to patients.

Kalare supports gastrointestinal exams, ERCP, myelography, venography, and nonvascular interventional radiography, according to Toshiba. Using the EPS-Plus digital fluoroscopy unit, abdominal and peripheral angiography studies also are possible.
