Improving the ability to diagnose cardiac disease with advanced
ultrasound imaging, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase
the newest additions to its ultrasound product line, AplioTM
500 and Aplio 300 at this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC)
annual meeting in Chicago, March 24 – 27, 2012 (Booth #6026). Toshiba
will also introduce new enhancements to its Aplio ArtidaTM
flagship cardiac ultrasound.
Toshiba’s Aplio 500 brings quantitative cardiac analysis bedside and is
the system of choice for all 2D cardiac imaging needs. Aplio 500
features Toshiba’s Wall Motion Tracking technology, combined with
superior ergonomics and a smaller footprint, making it easier to
maneuver for greater patient access and improved workflow. Toshiba’s new
high-end shared-service ultrasound system, Aplio 300, offers exceptional
image quality in a versatile platform designed for routine ultrasound
exams, including cardiac.
Aplio Artida’s new software version 3.0 offers improved 3D imaging and
next-generation 3D Wall Motion Tracking software, which provide accurate
and reproducible quantitative analysis of cardiac function. In addition,
the Artida’s enhanced single-beat 3D acquisition allows physicians to
obtain high-quality 3D images with detailed 3D Wall Motion Tracking
analysis on a wider range of patients, including those with arrhythmias
and shortness of breath.
“Aplio Artida’s 3D Wall Motion Tracking capability enables clinicians to
assess live 3D volume images in one cardiac cycle, allowing physicians
to get their clinical information faster, even on technically difficult
patients,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit,
Toshiba. “Combining the dedicated cardiac system, Aplio Artida, with the
new Aplio 500 and 300 gives Toshiba a complete cardiac ultrasound
portfolio for virtually any imaging need.”
