The Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California (USC) installed two Aplio 500 ultrasound systems and a Viamo ultrasound system from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc, Tustin, Calif. USC will use the Aplio 500 and Viamo systems for general exams, including pelvis, liver, and abdominal.

Aplio 500 offers imaging with advanced visualization capabilities, including Fly Thru. Toshiba’s Fly Thru uses 4D ultrasound to “fly through” interiors of ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses and to assist in planning interventional procedures. Additionally, Aplio 500 comes standard with enhanced workflow tools and ergonomics, including the iStyle+ Productivity Suite.
