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.”
