July 30, 2015 — After a tornado decimated the hospital only four years ago, Mercy Hospital Joplin in Joplin, Missouri, reopened its doors in March with a new, 900,000-square-foot facility with state-of-the-art equipment. Part of the acquisition by Mercy Hospital Joplin, formerly St. John’s Regional Medical Center, included eight Aplio 300 Platinum ultrasound systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.

“Toshiba is unlike any other diagnostic imaging company and has been committed to getting us back on our feet with the right technology for our needs,” said Nora Cannon, administrative director, cardiovascular services/imaging, Mercy Hospital Joplin. “Even while we continued to grow and meet our pre-disaster patient volumes, Toshiba was always there to train our new staff. We were also amazed at the image quality of the Aplio 300 Platinum for any studies and its ability to image larger patients.”

The Aplio 300 Platinum offers high image quality in a small, versatile platform and features a high-resolution 19-inch monitor. The iStyle Productivity Suite, an adaptable user interface, delivers workflow automation tools for faster exams. The Aplio 300 Platinum 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 and minimal invasiveness, leading to a better overall customer experience.
