White Memorial Medical Center is now able to respond to the directives of healthcare reform, conducting faster and safer procedures, using Toshiba's Infinix VF-i single plane cardiovascular X-ray system.
According to the company, the 353-bed, not-for-profit hospital in East Los Angeles utilizes the system for a variety of interventional and general radiology procedures.
"Exams are easier to perform because the Infinix-i's flexible C- arm provides our clinicians with better access to the patient," said Tim Gustafson, director, Radiology, White Memorial Medical Center. "Throughout the installation and training process, Toshiba has been an excellent partner. They ensured the system was up and running quickly and our staff knew how to operate it effectively."
Toshiba's Infinix-i features flexible C-arm movement and the Access Halo, allowing for head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip coverage with unrestricted 180-degree patient head-end access to perform exams with ease. When combined with Toshiba's proprietary Next Generation AIP, the Infinix-i improves visualization, helping clinicians diagnose and treat patients with enhanced accuracy.
"The Infinix-i is designed to handle large and diverse caseloads, making it an ideal system for facilities like White Memorial Medical Center," said David Sloop, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. "Particularly important in high-volume settings, the system's suite of dose reduction technologies helps clinicians keep radiation exposure as low as possible for themselves and the patient."
White Memorial Medical Center, a non-profit, 353-bed acute care facility in Boyle Heights, CA, has been a part of the greater Los Angeles community for 100 years.
