TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enabling physicians to perform more accurate and safer cardiac exams for pediatric patients, Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego installed Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s Infinix™ CF-i bi-plane vascular X-ray system. Rady Children’s will use the Infinix-i system for treatment planning and interventional cardiac procedures, including balloon dilation, stents, valves and cardiac device implantations. “Toshiba Infinix-i’s fast 3D image reconstruction speed is beneficial for pediatric interventions, especially when viewing the pulmonary artery during cardiac procedures,” said Dr. John Moore, Director, Pediatric Cardiology, Rady Children’s Hospital. “Additionally, exams are much faster due to the system’s flexible design and unrestricted access, resulting in less anesthesia administered.”
