Shimadzu rolls out three digital angiography systems

By 

April 7, 2014 - Shimadzu announced its new digital angiography system family received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These are the ceiling-mounted Trinias, the floor-mounted Trinias, and the Biplane models. 

All systems incorporate Shimadzu’s ultra-high speed SCORE PRO image processing technology, one of many features oriented toward workflow efficiency. Shimadzu’s SMART Design delivers the intuitive functionality required to respond instantly to physician and operator commands. The Shimadzu SCORE Imaging process dramatically enhances the fluoroscopic image while maintaining ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) dose considerations for all clinical staff. 

Designed as an angiographic interventional system, Trinias offers a new 12” “CROSSOVER” flat panel detector for multi-procedure versatility that accommodates any type of angiography procedure. Combined with SCORE PRO image processing, the systems provide excellent visibility and numerous image guidance functions, as well as sophisticated 3D application techniques. Real-time performance is optimized specifically for increasing patient throughput, minimizing cost, and improving patient outcomes. 

Designed also as a cardiac interventional system, Trinias is equipped with a new 8” flat panel detector for cardiac-suited procedures as well as neuro exams. SCORE StentView can provide users improved visibility of existing stents in vessels.

SCORE StentView can provide users improved visibility of existing stents in vessels. A real-time application now uses DICOM images and requires no special post-processing workstation. This saves valuable room space and creates a real-time interventional environment for physicians and staff at tableside. 

•SCORE 3D – This application uses Shimadzu advanced C-arm design and 60 degree per second rotation to acquire 3-D images in a matter of seconds. Multiple workstation features allow the user the flexibility to view the images as fly through, semi-transparent, or with any angle of images necessary to optimize patient outcomes. 
 
•SCORE CT – An application for observing cross sectional images of low-contrast procedures, such as tumor stains, visceral anatomy, neuro-interventional planning, and more. A complete system package, which demonstrates sagittal, axial and coronal slices within seconds, completes the interventional lab with ease-of-use- operation. Shimadzu’s unique C-arm design allows for the best image quality due to a G-force structure which eliminates image distortion due to motion. 

Patient safety is at the forefront with seven radiation dose reduction features that provide a system-wide tradeoff balance between acquiring higher image quality images at the most appropriate radiation dose. The systems have data mirroring and redundant filaments for procedure continuity.
