Industry-Leading Depth and Detail Help Ensure That Clinicians Can Make a Confident Diagnosis
TUSTIN, Calif., Mar. 7, 2016 – The Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital at Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics is providing its vascular surgery patients with fast, high-quality ultrasound exams using two new AplioTM 500 Platinum systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. The premier integrated delivery network (IDN) in East Texas is utilizing the systems in its vascular surgical group for pre-surgical planning.
“During our competitive review process, the overwhelming consensus by our physicians and technologists was that the Aplio 500 provided the best features, options and benefits,” said Joel Kempf, MBA, RT(R), director of Operations, Imaging, Trinity Mother Frances. “The systems have significantly improved our workflow and allowed us to add capacity and provide better access to our patients. Combining the system with our electronic medical records and PACS systems facilitates fast and accurate reporting, allowing our physicians to quickly and accurately assess patient care planning.”
Toshiba’s Aplio 500 Platinum ultrasound system provides powerful clinical imaging tools for advanced visualization, quantification and intervention. The industry-leading imaging technology delivers deep penetration, which is particularly helpful for imaging bariatric patients. Exams are also easy to perform with the iStyleTM+ Productivity Suite, which provides a full range of workflow automation tools that bring ergonomic relief by minimizing keystrokes, reducing exam times and increasing the consistency of exams.
“Toshiba understands Trinity Mother Frances’s commitment to providing world-class care and a best-in-class patient experience and offers technology solutions like the Aplio 500 Platinum to exceed its needs,” said Maria Piazza, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “The Aplio 500 Platinum and its numerous advanced technologies, like Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI), Shear Wave elastography, Fly Thru and Smart Fusion, expand the clinical utility of ultrasound with a safe and less invasive solution.”
