Performing pediatric cardiovascular interventions requires imaging equipment specifically designed for the setting. With superior access to both patient and equipment, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.'s Infinix-i™ bi-plane cardiovascular X‑ray system will be used during two live pediatric cases at the Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS-AICS), April 15–18, 2012, in Chicago.

The live cases will be performed on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, by leading interventional cardiologists:

Rush University Medical Center, Chicago—Ziyad M. Hijazi, M.D., and Zahid Amin, M.D.
Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio—John P. Cheatham, M.D.

Toshiba's Infinix-i systems feature an industry-leading five-axis positioner, allowing for unrestricted patient access to facilitate advanced, complex procedures with ease. Infinix-i's design, system mechanics and tableside dose reduction features all contribute to faster exam times and safer procedures.

"During pediatric interventions, the Infinix-i moves like a hovercraft, with C-arm movement that enables physicians to obtain difficult-to-reach imaging angles for more efficient diagnoses and treatment," said Stephen Bumb, director, X‑ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. "The PICS-AICS live cases provide real-life clinical examples of how Toshiba's technology improves patient care in the cath lab."
