Toshiba America Medical Systems has introduced upgrades across its ultrasound product line at Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.

The latest features available on the Aplio XG, Aplio MX, Xario XG, ultrsound systems and Viamo systems include new transducers, 4D imaging improvements and workflow protocol enhancements.

The new transducers, PVT-712BT and PVT-745BTH, produce high image quality and enables clinicians to view small details, in exams of neonatal heads, pediatric abdomens and thyroids, and direct visualization of organs respectively, Toshiba said.

Toshiba is improving 4D image quality across its ultrasound line to enable clinicians to enhance view dimensions of the anatomy being imaged clearly and accurately and has added workflow enhancements.

The new upgrades on the Viamo include ApliPure, TissuePure Imaging and DICOM structured reporting, which enable clinicians to perform advanced exams with greater image definition and clinical accuracy without compromising on patient access, making it ideal for high-end radiology, vascular and OB/GYN exams and procedures at patients’ bedsides.

Viamo also offers the ability to interchange Toshiba transducers from other ultrasound systems such as the Aplio MX, thus improving productivity and flexibility while saving healthcare costs by reducing the need to purchase multiple transducers.

Toshiba Ultrasound Business Unit director Tomohiro Hasegawa said that the upgrades offered across Toshiba’s ultrasound product line are designed to further enhance clinical capability and productivity, allowing clinicians to diagnose more patients in a shorter period of time and improve overall workflow.
