Ultrasound will be able to depict blood flow with more detail and accuracy using Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s work-in-progress ultrasound capability, which is the latest advancement to Toshiba’s Aplio 500 ultrasound system. Despite advances in ultrasound, current imaging techniques struggle to detect microvascular blood flow in areas like the liver, kidneys, abdomen and lymph nodes because of limitatxions in conventional Doppler technologies. Toshiba’s technology will help solve this problem and current evaluations have shown promise in its ability to characterize tumors. For more information:,
