Aplio 500 Showcased at SPR
SAN ANTONIO, May 13, 2013 – Offering an ultrasound system for diverse pediatric needs, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase its AplioTM 500at the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR) annual conference, May 14 – 18, 2013, in San Antonio. The system combines advanced visualization capabilities with ergonomics and flexibility to improve pediatric imaging and departmental efficiency.
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. Aplio 500 comes standard with advanced workflow tools and ergonomics, including the iStyleTM+ Productivity Suite.
“To meet the expanding requirements of pediatric healthcare, Toshiba’s Aplio 500 is designed to improve patient outcomes,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “Aplio 500 features the most advanced imaging applications designed to reduce the need for additional imaging and minimize radiation exposure during diagnostic imaging and intervention.”
