Toshiba’s Aplio 500 Ultrasound System Named Best in KLAS

It was awarded top ranking in the Ultrasound - General Imaging category

August 16, 2013 — Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s Aplio 500 received top ranking in the Ultrasound – General Imaging category in the 2013 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure.

“We’re seeing real movement in the market,” said Kent Gale, KLAS founder and vice president of medical imaging and equipment. “It’s a strong indicator of the increasing competitiveness of the vendors as they strive to improve their offerings.”

The Aplio 500 offers picture-perfect imaging with advanced visualization features, including Fly Thru and Smart Fusion. An industry-first technology, Fly Thru uses 4-D ultrasound to “fly through” interiors of fluid-filled ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses and to assist in planning interventional procedures. Smart Fusion synchronizes computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) with ultrasound, helping to locate hard-to-find lesions and aiding in ultrasound-guided biopsies. Aplio 500 comes standard with advanced workflow tools and ergonomics, including the iStyle + Productivity Suite.
