Toshiba expands advanced processing
Toshiba engineers have expanded the compatibility of its next generation advanced image processing (AIP) to include mid-and large-sized flat panel detectors that support cardiac, vascular and neuro interventional procedures. Previously, AIP had been available only on the company’s high-performance Infinix-i series of vascular X-ray systems. Toshiba America Medical Systems will feature the capability and its wider compatibility Sept. 21-25 at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics in San Francisco. AIP increases image sharpness and contrast, while reducing background noise, thereby improving the visualization of vasculature and interventional tools, according to the company. This proprietary technology has virtually eliminated image lag, benefiting clinicians while guiding and deploying devices during fluoroscopy, Toshiba said.

Brit Systems upgrades mammo display
A new version of BRIT Systems’ multi-modality workstation incorporating a full-featured mammography module debuted Sept. 14-17 at the Breast Imaging Conference in Glendale, AZ. Enhancements in Brit Vision Version 3.6 streamline workflow for mammography image review. Its SmartComp capability allows the comparison of different images at the same zoom, window/level, and projection factors, as the new study with the push of a button. SmartZoom synchronizes the zoom factor between images. This latest version of BRIT Vision also includes a new mammography specific keypad that helps mammographers quickly select viewing projection within or between studies and turn CAD markings on or off.

TomoTherapy stretches Japanese base
As part of an expansion of its cancer center in Tokyo, Edogawa Hospital has installed its second TomoTherapy radiation treatment system. The new installation brings the company’s Japanese customer base to 16 treatment systems at 14 hospitals. In addition to the Edogawa Hospital installation, during 2009 TomoTherapy systems have been introduced at Kita Fukushima Hospital and Fukui-Saiseikai Hospital.
