Toshiba Announces Aplio 300 Ultrasound System

Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. recently launched the Aplio 300 ultrasound system. The Aplio 300 was shown at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago from Nov. 27 - Dec. 2, 2011.

Toshiba America Medical Systems (TAMS) markets, sells, distributes and services diagnostic imaging systems, and coordinates clinical diagnostic imaging research for all modalities in the United States.

Toshiba's Aplio 300 system overcomes the challenges of conventional ultrasound and delivers picture-perfect images with high image resolution and detail. Toshiba's High-Density Beamformer Architecture uses the most advanced digital signal processing technology to reveal clinical information like never seen before, and delivers that information quickly and reliably using an array of unique imaging technologies.

“The Aplio 300 combines powerful visualization capabilities, workflow automation tools and better ergonomics for more accurate diagnoses and better patient throughput,” stated Tomohiro Hasegawa, director of the Ultrasound Business Unit at Toshiba.

“The system meets a variety of needs, making it an essential ultrasound system for today's healthcare environment,” Hasegawa added.

The Aplio 300 provides image quality in a smaller, versatile platform for all routine ultrasound exams, like radiology, OB/GYN and cardiac.

Aplio 300 features Differential Tissue Harmonics (D-THI) which provides uniformity in the near and far fields, especially while scanning at increased depth. iStyle Productivity Suite helps minimize keystrokes and reduce exam times with customizable user interface and preset management tools. It also features a high-resolution LCD screen on a four-axis arm and handle, adjustable console, lighter weight and smaller footprint.

Toshiba's Reliance Program is a custom training program focused on achieving technical proficiency and optimal productivity.

In other news, improving patient care by enabling clinicians to better manage radiation dose for X-ray procedures, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. has added two new enhancements to the RADREX-i digital radiographic (DR) X-ray system - DICOM Radiation Dose Structured Reporting and Reject Analysis software.
