Cardiovascular Institute of the South Upgrades Cardiac Ultrasound With New Toshiba Medical Systems

April 17, 2017 — To bolster its technology and treatment capabilities for coronary and peripheral artery diseases across all of its locations, Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) installed 20 new Aplio 300 Platinum CV ultrasound systems from Toshiba Medical. CIS also upgraded 20 existing ultrasounds to Toshiba Medical’s Aplio 300 Platinum platform to ensure staff were offering consistent and more confident cardiac diagnoses to all patients.

“Purchasing ultrasound systems that are extremely easy to use and installing them across all of our facilities to make exams consistent was very important to us,” said Jaime Aubin, ultrasound team leader, Cardiovascular Institute of the South. “The Aplio 300 Platinum and Aplio 300 Platinum CV ultrasounds offer the best image quality and the cardiac applications we need to make it easier for sonographers of all levels of experience to easily capture images with little to no pressure to the body, improving patient comfort. Toshiba Medical has also been an excellent partner in training all of our staff, as well as helping us create custom reports that fully integrate with our EMR [electronic medical record] platform.”

The Aplio 300 Platinum CV offers a comprehensive suite of dedicated-cardiac technologies, featuring 2-D Wall Motion Tracking, spectral and color Doppler, and Toshiba Medical’s latest suite of guidance and workflow technologies. Delivering detail and resolution throughout the entire field-of-view, the system provides excellent definition of the endocardium, which results in an accurate and easy-to-use 2-D strain resolution. Furthermore, Toshiba Medical’s Wall Motion Tracking technology allows providers to quantify isolated movement within the heart to assist with detection of cardiotoxicity.

The Aplio 300 Platinum features a high-resolution 19-inch monitor and an optional fourth transducer port. The system also includes advanced imaging features, such as Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF), Differential Tissue Harmonics (D-THI), Precision Imaging and ApliPure+. In addition, BEAM needle visualization allows for better procedural accuracy leading to a better overall customer experience.
