Toshiba Launches Aplio 500 Ultrasound with Advanced Fly Thru and Smart Fusion Features

CHICAGO, Nov 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc., launched the Aplio(TM) 500 ultrasound system, enabling clinicians to diagnose like never before, using the most advanced visualization tools in the industry. The Aplio 500 ultrasound is 510(k) cleared and displayed at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 27 -- Dec. 2, 2011 (Booth #5634, South Hall).

Aplio 500 combines advanced visualization capabilities, workflow automation tools and superior ergonomics for more accurate diagnoses and improved departmental efficiency. The system is backed by Toshiba's Reliance Program, the industry's best warranty/technology protection program.

Toshiba's Aplio 500 comes optional with Fly Thru and Smart Fusion, two advanced features unmatched in the industry:

-- Fly Thru: This industry-first technology revolutionizes ultrasound diagnosis using 3D volume rendering to "fly through" interiors of ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses, and to assist in planning interventional procedures. Fly Thru gives clinicians an entirely new perspective of 3D imaging.

-- Smart Fusion: Shows both 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 Smart Fusion is easy to use, with the most intuitive user set-up available.
