An intuitive interface, faster PC server, and work-in-progress detector panel enhance the Infinix VF-i/BP (biplane) Vascular X-ray at the Toshiba America Medical Systems booth at RSNA 2008. The midsize, high-resolution 12 x 12-inch detector panel, also intended for use on the company’s single-plane vascular system, Infinix VF-i/SP, will offer more coverage without limiting access to the patient, according to the firm. The improved user interface is intended to make it easier for physicians to view tableside images. The optional flat-panel detector is large enough to image whole organs, such as the brain, while still allowing for steep, compound biplane projections. The new digital upgrades are expected to be available in spring 2009.
