Toshiba’s Aplio 500 Ultrasound System Featured on "The Doctors"

Posted by:

TUSTIN, Calif., Jul 24, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s newest ultrasound system, the
Aplio(TM) 500, was featured on the nationally syndicated television show,
“The Doctors.” In an episode about old medical remedies versus new
technologies, hosts Lisa Masterson, M.D., and Travis Stork, M.D., talked
about the Aplio 500’s breakthrough Fly Thru feature and how it can
benefit patients.

Fly Thru, an industry-first technology, gives a new perspective to 4D
ultrasound, allowing clinicians to “fly through” interiors of ducts and
vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses. Fly Thru enables
clinicians to visualize abnormalities from the inside out, similar to a
virtual endoscope, making it easier to potentially see subtle
abnormalities that could otherwise be missed.

“Toshiba works every day to develop technologies that improve the
quality of life for all people,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director,
Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “The Aplio 500 is one example of how
we are doing that by enabling clinicians to use ultrasound in new ways
for faster, more accurate, non-invasive diagnoses.”
