Floyd Medical Center Acquires Quartet of Toshiba Cardiac Ultrasound Systems

July 19, 2017 — Floyd Medical Center in Rome, Ga., recently installed three new Aplio 500 Platinum CV ultrasound systems from Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company, in its cardiology department. To support ultrasound capabilities in the intensive care unit (ICU), Floyd Medical also installed the Xario 200 Platinum Series ultrasound system. Floyd Medical is leveraging the systems for strain imaging, pediatric and fetal echocardiography and stress echocardiography.

“We needed affordable equipment and a reliable partner that could help us expand our ultrasound capabilities in the ICU and cardiology department,” said Tony Gallagher, director of cardiac ultrasound, Floyd Medical Center. “Toshiba Medical closely partnered with us to ensure our staff were fully trained on the systems and helped us customize protocols specifically for our needs. The Aplio 500 Platinum CV and Xario 200 Platinum Series deliver clear images and give our clinicians more information to make confident diagnoses. We also experienced shorter exams and faster processing times as the images automatically transfer to our PACS system so we can immediately view the images once the exam is completed.”

The Aplio 500 Platinum CV offers a comprehensive suite of dedicated cardiac technologies, featuring 2D Wall Motion Tracking, spectral and Color Doppler, and Toshiba Medical’s suite of guidance and workflow technologies. Delivering detail and resolution throughout the entire field-of-view, the system provides excellent definition of the endocardium, which results in an accurate and easy-to-use 2-D strain resolution. Additionally, Toshiba Medical’s Wall Motion Tracking technology allows providers to quantify isolated movement within the heart.

The Xario 200 Platinum Series features the company’s advanced ultrasound technologies for depth and detail. This includes technologies like Precision Imaging, Differential Tissue Harmonics (D-THI) and Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF). The system also offers enhanced performance and workflow features, including a customizable panel and touch command screen, and one-button optimization and clinical parameter setting with Toshiba Medical’s Quick Scan and Quick Start technologies.
