Toshiba Launches Aplio 500 Ultrasound System

November 30, 2011 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc., launched the Aplio 500 ultrasound system, enabling clinicians to diagnose using advanced visualization tools. The system is 510(k) cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and displayed at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 27 – Dec. 2.

The system combines advanced visualization capabilities, workflow automation tools and superior ergonomics for more accurate diagnoses and improved departmental efficiency. It is backed by Toshiba’s Reliance Program, the company’s warranty/technology protection program.

The Aplio 500 comes optional with two advanced features, Fly Thru and Smart Fusion:

Fly Thru: This technology allows ultrasound diagnosis using 3-D volume rendering to “fly through” interiors of ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses. This can also assist in planning interventional procedures.

Smart Fusion: This feature shows both computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound images side-by-side on a single screen. Smart Fusion syncs the two images, helping to locate hard-to-find lesions and aiding in ultrasound-guided biopsy without additional CT scans.

“Toshiba’s Fly Thru is a unique adaptation of 3-D/4-D ultrasound, providing an inside-out view of anatomical structures, which is a different way of looking at the body using ultrasound,” said Edward G. Grant, M.D., professor and chairman, department of radiology, USC Keck School of Medicine, who evaluated the technology.

The system delivers images powered by Toshiba’s various technologies; these include Tissue Specific Optimization (TSO), Precision Imaging, Differential Tissue Harmonics (D-THI), Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF) and ApliPure+.

The company’s iStyle+ Productivity Suite offers a full range of workflow automation tools combined with enhanced ergonomics. Its features include a 19-inch LCD screen with a handle for easy repositioning, adjustable console for convenient patient access, and lighter weight and smaller footprint.
