Intervention Support with Real Time Image Processing Technology Covering Wide Range of Clinical Usage
from Cardiac to Peripheral Region

Trinias unity edition

Shimadzu introduces new cath lab system, Trinias series "unity edition", with 10 various model, which supports interventional treatment for whole body covering cardiac, neuro, abdominal, and peripheral regions by implementing cutting-edge image processing technology that fully communicates with multi functionality cath table to encourage low dose and more qualified device visulalization.

Trinias "unity edition" has been designed to brush up both hardware and software, as seen in full range of new image processing technology which supports high complex interventions, and multi functionality cath table which supports flexible positioning by tilting function, and customizable touch panel console to support every intended usage. Heart-warming new color design of "unity edition" discovers Shimadzu's everlasting mind to develop qualified product as made-in-Japan product which integrates all processes from production to quality inspection in Shimadzu factory. Shimadzu has been ambitious to produce reliability and safety for both patients and users.

Background to the Development

Cath lab system is X-ray imaging system which is used under interventional treatment to treat patients with angina or cardiac infarct by using cathether. Intervention, which is less invasive treatment compared to surgery operation, recently attracts more attention, and more rapid development has been seen with downsizing and device qualification, reduction of contrast media, and establishment of the treatment.

Such clinical trend generates an expectation to worldwide cath lab systems to encourage both low dose and high image quality simultaneously, which is even capable to support various anatomical regions, and various treatment and diagnosis by using various devices. Shimadzu's development policy is to reduce patients' and physicians' burden, and to be supportive for whole body part, not only for cardiac region, but also for neuro, abdominal, and peripheral regions.


1. Various Real Time Image Processing Technology That Enhances the More Efficient Workflow and Supports the Better Patient Care.

Real-time artifact optimization software, "Flex-APS" becomes available, which automatically optimizes every pixel-by-pixel motions during DSA acquisition, where vessel image is abstructed by subtracting mask images of bones or organs from live image acquired by contrast imaging. Remarkable new application that becomes available besides these is, "SCORE Chase", which displays whole extremeties by stitching acquired images taken out from one contrast imaging. It is expected to increase the safetiness of treatment and saving study time by real time image processing technology.

2. Communication with Multi-Functionality Cath Table and Expansion of Product Line-up

Communication with multi-functionality cath table becomes available, which supports flexible table positioning by tilting function, and several comands such as switching function or selecting displayed image can be operated at table side touch panel console, which is customizable up to user’s preference. Customers’ choice with Shimadzu product is now expanded by added new product line-up, 16" x 12" FPD mounted system, which is effectively used when acquiring long and wide range of body part such as peripherial region.
