Toshiba’s Newest Ultrasound Systems Showcased at the Leading Edge in Diagnostic Ultrasound Annual Conference

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., May 8, 2012 – Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase the AplioTM 500 and Aplio 300 ultrasound systems at the Leading Edge in Diagnostic Ultrasound Annual Conference, May 8 – 11, 2012, in Atlantic City, N.J. (Booth #103). Both systems combine advanced visualization capabilities, workflow automation tools and superior ergonomics, for improved departmental efficiency and greater patient access.

Toshiba’s Aplio 500 offers picture-perfect imaging with advanced visualization features, including Fly Thru and Smart Fusion. An industry-first technology, Fly Thru uses 4D ultrasound to “fly through” interiors of fluid-filled ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses and to assist in planning interventional procedures. Smart Fusion combines the best in imaging and synchronizes CT or MR with ultrasound, helping to locate hard-to-find lesions and aiding in ultrasound-guided biopsies.

The Aplio 300 offers exceptional image quality in a smaller, more versatile platform designed to be a clinical workhorse for all routine ultrasound exams. Aplio 300 comes standard with the same advanced workflow tools and ergonomics as the Aplio 500 system, including the iStyleTM+ Productivity Suite.

“Both of our newest ultrasound systems provide clinicians with unique capabilities designed to meet the needs of any hospital,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “Aplio 500, Toshiba’s flagship ultrasound system, has advanced features to help improve ultrasound diagnoses, while the Aplio 300 is a versatile system designed for many routine exams.”
