New Innovations for Toshiba Ultrasound Improve Image Quality, Workflow

UltraExtend FX, Luminance, new transducers and workflow enhancements for Aplio 500 and Aplio 300 showcased at RSNA 2012

RSNA 2012 Toshiba UltraExtend FX Luminance  transducers Workflow Enhancers

December 4, 2012 — To expand imaging capabilities and improve department productivity, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. showcased new and future innovations for the AplioTM 500 and Aplio 300 ultrasound systems at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 25 – 30, 2012.

Several innovations that will help to improve workflow and image quality include:

UltraExtend FX Workstation: Recently FDA-cleared, UltraExtend FX is an offline workstation for advanced radiology applications, including Aplio 500’s Fly Thru. With the workstation, clinicians have full access to a host of clinical tools to review, analyze, report and archive data quickly and easily.

Luminance (works-in-progress): A 4-D rendering and lighting technique producing stellar fetal images, Luminance can be used to examine the fetal face and other anatomical structures by applying color and illumination to enhance features.

New transducers (works-in-progress):

  • PVT-781VT (3–11 MHz): A high-resolution, endocavitary transducer designed for producing superb endovaginal and prostate imaging. This transducer supports

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
