Shimadzu Medical Systems USA and CMS Imaging announce the first ceiling mounted 16” Trinias installation in a hybrid surgical suite in the U.S.

Cleveland, OH, August 22, 2019 - Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corporation is pleased to announce the first installation in the USA of a Trinias unity C16 in a hybrid surgical environment. The system was installed by Shimadzu’s dealer partner CMS Imaging, Inc based in North Charleston, SC, with sales and service in 9 states including South Carolina.

"At CMS Imaging we pride ourselves on providing our customers with comprehensive and best-in-class solutions. The Trinias unity C16 will provide the physicians of Spartanburg Regional with a first-class solution to improve the quality of care for their patients,” says John Sloan, CEO of CMS Imaging.

“This was a very complex and exciting project for CMS Imaging and Spartanburg Regional. They are very pleased with the effort and support by CMS Imaging and Shimadzu Medical Systems personnel”, said Brian Collins of CMS Imaging.

Tim Stevener, Director of the Shimadzu Interventional X-ray Business indicated that, “The installation at Spartanburg Regional will be an outstanding collaboration with Dr. Calton and his team to show the latest imaging technology for vascular surgical procedures”.

Dr. William Calton, Vascular Surgeon, explains that he is pleased with the imaging that he has already seen, stating, “The imaging with the Trinias system is very good. I’m frequently using Score RSM for my vascular procedures, and I can see the vascular structures in subtraction with no motion artifact, even when the patient moves! I am surprised to discover that my contrast usage is reduced, as well as the measured doses per procedure. The workflow at the tableside for c-arm positioning and tableside operation is simple and easy to use.”

Spartanburg Regional began doing vascular imaging and surgical procedures in their new room on July 8th.
