Software Enhancements to Toshiba’s Cardiovascular X-Ray Systems Improve TAVR Procedures with Enhanced Clinical Guidance

To better facilitate transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. introduces two new software enhancements that complement its Infinix™-i cardiovascular X-ray systems. The Infinix-i systems will now utilize software from Pie Medical Imaging BV – 3mensio Valve™ and CAAS A-Valve™. The new software will be showcased at this year’s Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) Scientific Sessions in Las Vegas, May 9 – 12, 2012 (Booth #522).

The 3mensio Valve software is used in planning TAVR procedures to visualize and analyze the aortic root and access routes. The 3mensio Valve screen is displayed in the Infinix-i procedure room to show the delivery pathway, 3D structure of the aortic root and calcifications present. CAAS A-Valve is utilized during the intervention. It uses two angiography X-ray projections to create a 3D reconstruction of the aortic root, providing the best visualization angle to move the Infinix-i C-arm into this optimal projection. To further enhance workflow, real-time measurements can be performed on the 2D and 3D images.

Toshiba’s Infinix-i moves like a hovercraft, offering unrestricted patient access and C-arm movement with high-resolution images, enabling physicians to conduct advanced TAVR procedures with maximum efficiency and efficacy. The system’s flexible design streamlines valve replacement procedures, as physicians can obtain a wide range of imaging angles without repositioning the patient. The combination of the Infinix-i system design and mechanics with advanced visualization techniques creates the ideal lab for TAVR procedures.

“Having both advanced visualization and quantification software tools embedded directly into Toshiba’s Infinix-i systems will support physicians in better performing TAVR procedures,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Offering the most advanced technology that improves efficiency and patient care is another example of Toshiba’s commitment to its customers.”
