Toshiba Introduces New Cardiovascular Ultrasound Product - Aplio Artida - at ACC

Enhancing diagnostic confidence through the development of cutting-edge imaging technologies, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. today announced the company's newest product - the Aplio(TM) Artida ultrasound system. With its comprehensive applications, the Artida meets the demands of the growing cardiac 4D market.

With Artida's real-time, multi-planar reformatting capabilities, physicians can quantify global and regional LV function, including LV ejection fraction, volume and severity of regurgitation. Arbitrary views of the heart not available in 2D imaging are also obtained that can help with surgical planning. The system's U.S. introduction will take place at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in Chicago, March 30 - April 1, 2008 (Booth # 8001).
