Salford neuroradiologists test specialist software

Toshiba Medical Systems senior service engineer XR Marc Ivison, consultant interventional neuroradiologist Dr Hannah Stockley, superintendent radiographer Dhiren Patel, Toshiba account manager CT/MR/XR Graham King, senior neuroradiographer Rory Dedman and Toshiba head of technical support group Matthew Solomon.

Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust has purchased two Toshiba Infinix-i neuro-interventional labs.  The existing systems were over ten years old so the trust was looking to replace a biplane system used almost exclusively for complex neuro-interventional cases and a single plane system used as a neuro back-up and for other general interventional procedures.

Superintendent radiographer Dee Patel said: “The first thing that impressed us about the Toshiba equipment was the versatility of the multi-axis positioning capability of the C-arm on the Infinix-i system.  We have found lateral and vertical movements of the lateral arm on the biplane system to be extremely useful in neuro applications.  In addition, our neuro-interventionalists were impressed with the tableside controls, which give them access to the whole imaging system without leaving the patient.”
