April 17, 2014  — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. received approval to operate (ATO) with the U.S. Air Force, making Toshiba the only current manufacturer to have a fully certified computed tomography (CT) system for use on the Air Force Network.

By achieving ATO status, Toshiba met the Department of Defense’s stringent guidelines of ensuring protection of patient health information (PHI) and guarding against malware, viruses and malicious attacks. To meet these requirements, Toshiba enhanced its CT platform to include Microsoft Windows 7 and application whitelisting software to proactively identify and prevent viruses and malicious solicitations.
