TORRANCE, Calif., June 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Shimadzu Corporation will commence worldwide sales of its flagship newest version of its Trinias™ angiography system.
Shimadzu Medical Systems USA will introduce our innovative new technology solutions in angiography at the SIR 2022 conference, starting on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
The new Trinias system uses AI deep learning technology to improve the visibility of medical devices while using 40% or more lower*2 X-ray dose than previous models. This represents the first time AI has been incorporated into the image processing engine of an angiography system.
The new Trinias system also offers an extensive new feature set to simplify workflow, allowing a more efficient clinical operation in any medical setting. With the launch of a subscription service that ensures software can always be updated to the current version, the new Trinias system offers a sustainable product designed for long-term use.

- *2 Comparison with our conventional system under standard dose ratio (Air Kerma) at 7.5pps and 10pps.
Angiography systems are used to perform angiographic examinations, where the physician inserts a catheter (small tube) through a blood vessel in the patient’s wrist or inguinal region to a specific site (in the heart, head, liver, lungs, etc.) and observes an area of disease or concern, and to perform catheterization procedures, where a therapeutic device is inserted in the patient and used to dilate blood vessels or perform other interventional procedures.
Medical facilities are increasingly operating angiography systems at low radiation levels to reduce X-ray doses, but low radiation levels also lead to X-ray noise that reduces device visibility. To support the low-dose operation of angiography systems by medical facilities and ever-smaller therapeutic devices that reduce the burden on patients, Shimadzu has developed SCORE™ Opera, a new image processing technology that uses AI to ensure catheterization procedures are safe even at low radiation doses.
Our new concept is based on three important design principles, and it is developed to provide solutions to your most challenging issues in today’s healthcare workplace.
Workplace Challenge: “I want to see images more clearly but also reduce dose levels.”
Workplace Challenge: “How can I accomplish routine tasks more efficiently?”
Workplace Challenge: “To better care for my patients, I would prefer to always use the latest technology.”
