Spot fluoroscopy, dose tracking solutions featured at SIR 2014


March 24, 2014 - Optimizing dose management for patients and clinicians during interventional procedures continues to be a top priority in interventional radiology. 

            Two new dose reduction technologies, Spot Fluoroscopy technology and Dose Tracking System by Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc., both available for Toshiba’s InfinixTM-i cardiovascular X-ray systems, will be on display at this year’s Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting, held March 22-27, 2014, in San Diego. 

            Spot Fluoroscopy is designed to offer clinicians a more detailed picture, improving the safety of interventional procedures. The technology allows operators to observe a target area using live fluoroscopy while viewing the Last Image Hold (LIH) surround area, resulting in decreased dose and a more complete image for faster diagnoses.  

  • Spot Fluoroscopy is a Toshiba feature that substantially reduces the area exposed to fluoroscopy during interventional procedures.


            Toshiba’s Dose Tracking System, an industry first, allows clinicians to visualize radiation skin dose in real time during interventional procedures. By tracking and displaying the distribution of skin dose across a patient’s body, clinicians can make quick and necessary changes to minimize risk. 
            “Technologies like Spot Fluoroscopy and Dose Tracking System are particularly important during long interventional procedures,” said David Sloop, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “The technologies provide unmatched dose management solutions to minimize radiation exposure to both clinicians and patients.”

            Toshiba will showcase its Spot Fluoroscopy technology and Dose Tracking System at SIR in Booth #1236.
