This past summer, the new, 900,000-square-foot facility acquired eight Aplio 300 Platinum ultrasound systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. to provide the latest in imaging technology for general, cardiology, and vascular ultrasound studies.

“Even while we continued to grow and meet our pre-disaster patient volumes, Toshiba was always there to train our new staff,” said Nora Cannon, administrative director, cardiovascular services/imaging. “We were also amazed at the image quality of the Aplio 300 Platinum for any studies and its ability to image larger patients.”

Featuring a high-resolution 19-inch monitor, the Aplio 300 includes the iStyle Productivity Suite, an adaptable user interface that delivers workflow automation tools for faster exams. The Aplio 300 Platinum also includes advanced imaging features, such as Advanced Dynamic Flow, Differential Tissue Harmonics, Precision Imaging and ApliPure+. In addition, BEAM needle visualization allows for better procedural accuracy and minimal invasiveness, leading to a better overall customer experience.
