Toshiba America Medical Systems plans to launch a new interventional radiology room in its Infinix-i family that features what the company calls a double-sliding C-arm at the upcoming RSNA 2016 meeting in Chicago.

Infinix-i Sky+ is a new ceiling-mounted angiography system with a double-sliding C-arm that gives it new flexibility in positioning, according to the company. It features 210° of anatomical coverage on both sides of the patient, as well as high-speed 3D rotation of 80° per second.

Infinix-i Sky+ also includes automated and user-selectable tools for radiation dose management that are designed to minimize x-ray exposure to patients and clinicians.
