Better protection for patients and clinicians
The use of X-rays is a necessary evil during interventional procedures. That’s why reducing radiation exposure to patients and staff is a prime design concept for all Infinix-i systems. Here are a few of the methods operators can apply to control radiation dose.
Setting the Standard for Dose Management
We are committed to making continuous advancements in dose management innovations and to incorporating X-ray dose reduction technologies into all Infinix-i X-ray systems. To achieve this, we have worked to reduce dose by focusing on four fundamental areas of system performance – time, distance, shielding, and technology – while maintaining exceptional image quality. As a result, Canon Medical has developed an industry-leading comprehensive package of dose management features designed to deliver images of high diagnostic value while ensuring safe operating conditions for staff and patients.

Radiation dose levels can be monitored in real time through digital display in the examination room.
Grid Pulse Fluoro
Efficient pulses reduce leading and trailing-edge dose. Includes frame rate selection for Fluoro and Record between 1-30 frames per second (FPS).
Prospective and retrospective image capture with the ability to instantly replay and review reduces repeat exposures.
Live Zoom allows magnifying anatomy while performing an intervention without increasing the detector input dose.
Dose Tracking System (DTS)
DTS is a dose awareness tool that provides estimated dose information for the patient’s body surface in realtime. Read about Real-time colour pictorial radiation monitoring during coronary angiography
Spot Fluoro provides asymmetric, lesion-focused collimation while maintaining the full field of information without increasing the dose.
After fluoroscopy, virtual collimation software simulates collimator positions so operators can adjust collimation with no additional fluoroscopy.
Advanced Image Processing (AIP)
Next Generation AIP produces more uniform images and the ability to visualise fine details. The software works in concert with hardware to optimise image display and minimize dose.
Combining AIP + SNRF brings Fluoro image quality to a new level.
Super Noise Reduction Filter (SNRF)
Improves image quality by reducing noise without introducing image lag, enabling the user to work with lower dose at the same image quality level.
