May 10, 2012 -- Toshiba America Medical Systems said it has debuted two new software enhancements that complement its Infinix-i cardiovascular x-ray systems.

The Infinix-i systems will now use 3mensio valve and CAAS A-valve software from Pie Medical Imaging. Toshiba plans to showcase the new software at this year's Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) scientific sessions in Las Vegas.

Pie Medical Imaging's 3mensio valve software is used in planning transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures to visualize and analyze the aortic root and access routes. The 3mensio valve screen is displayed in the Infinix-i procedure room to show the delivery pathway, 3D structure of the aortic root, and calcifications present. CAAS A-Valve is utilized during the intervention, using two angiography x-ray projections to create a 3D reconstruction of the aortic root, Toshiba said.
