Toshiba America Medical Systems (TAMS) has introduced a new version of 3D vascular imaging technology for its Infinix i-series line of vascular x-ray systems.
Developed in conjunction with neuroradiologists at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, TAMS is showing improvements on its previous 3D digital subtraction angiography (3D-DSA) technology of its Infinix i-series with a new 3D fusion digital subtraction angiography (3D-FDSA) technology. The new technology illustrates both intracranial vascular anomalies and detailed anatomic correlation with surrounding bone structures.
While the previous 3D-DSA technology enhanced the accuracy of DSA for the diagnosis of intracranial vascular anomalies, detailed anatomic information of surrounding bone structures was not provided. Toshiba's 3D-FDSA is a new algorithm for rotational angiography that combines separate reconstructions of blood vessels and bone structures in a single 3D representation. The fusion of 3D-DSA and 3D bone images produces a high-resolution 3D-FDSA image that is designed to accurately depict fine anatomic structures and topographic relationships.
