Toshiba Medical Introduces Premium Ultrasound Systems to Enhance the Clinical Application of Ultrasound

Aplio i-series Features Improved Technology, Outstanding Image Quality and Intuitive Ergonomics for Better Diagnostic Confidence and Patient Care

Toshiba Medical’s Aplio i-series ultrasound platform expands the clinical utility of ultrasound with iPerformance technologies for extreme processing power and iBeam to increase penetration, spatial resolution and contrast resolution, while at the same time reducing artifacts and clutter.

CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2016 - Giving healthcare providers the dramatic performance improvements needed to expand the clinical utility of ultrasound, Toshiba Medical is launching the premium Aplio™ i-series ultrasound platform. The Aplio i-series’ powerful performance helps increase diagnostic confidence and offers a more cost-effective, less invasive and safer solution than other radiation emitting modalities.

The Aplio i-series is a highly-advanced and scalable ultrasound solution made up of the Aplio i700 and Aplio i800, which are both FDA cleared and are ideal for shared service departments with a high patient throughput.

Both systems include iPerformance technologies that deliver extreme processing power and allow healthcare providers to see more. A new beam-forming technology, iBeam, optimizes efficiency of the beam, increasing penetration, spatial resolution and contrast resolution, while at the same time reducing artifacts and clutter. The i800 offers advanced clinical applications, including an ultra-high frequency transducer (24 MHz) that makes it easier for clinicians to image superficial structures and expand the use of diagnostic ultrasound.

The Aplio i-series provides intuitive ergonomics to boost productivity during daily routine and complex exams with iSense. The systems offer an image-guided user interface, which visually guides the clinician through the exam to simplify system operation and help improve efficiency. To make ultrasound exams faster, the systems feature touch control screens and real-time quick scan, which makes automatic image adjustments without pushing a button.

“The Aplio i-series raises the bar in ultrasound. The systems combine leading edge image quality with advanced clinical applications, giving our customers a clinical and cost-effective solution for today’s healthcare challenges,” said Satrajit Misra, vice president, Marketing and Strategic Development, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. “The systems also feature entirely redesigned controls and ergonomic features that make work flow, help reduce user strain and improve patient throughput.”

Toshiba Medical is showcasing the new Aplio i700 and Aplio i800 at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 27 – December 2, 2016 (Booth #7334, North Hall B).
