Aplio 500 and Aplio 300 Showcased at SRU Annual Conference 

BALTIMORE, Oct. 26, 2012 – Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase the AplioTM 500 and Aplio 300 ultrasound systems at the Society of Radiology in Ultrasound (SRU) Annual Conference, October 26-28, 2012, in Baltimore, MD. Both systems combine advanced visualization capabilities with ergonomics and flexibility to improve departmental efficiency.

Aplio 500 delivers an industry-first technology with Fly Thru, giving a new perspective to 4D ultrasound by allowing clinicians to “fly through” interiors of ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses. Smart Fusion synchronizes CT or MR with ultrasound images on a single screen, helping to locate hard-to-find lesions and supporting more accurate ultrasound-guided biopsies.

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.

“Aplio 500 and Aplio 300 are designed to meet the clinical needs of today’s busy ultrasound departments,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “With Aplio 500, Fly Thru and Smart Fusion allow clinicians to use ultrasound in new ways for faster, more accurate diagnoses.”
