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.”
